HABSBURG, or Hapsburg, the name of the famous family from which have sprung the dukes and archdukes of Austria from 1282, kings of Hungary and Bohemia from 1526, and emperors of Austria from 1804.
The name Habsburg, a variant of an older form, Habichtsburg (hawk's castle), was taken from the castle of Habsburg, which was situated on the river Aar not far from its junction with the Rhine.
This was an event of supreme moment in the history of the Habsburgs, and was the first and most important stage in the process of transferring the centre of their authority from western to eastern Europe, from the Rhine to the Danube.

  Habsburg Monarchy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Habsburg Monarchy included the territories ruled by the Austrian branch of the House of Habsburg, and then by the successor House of Habsburg-Lorraine, between 1526 and 1867/1918.
The Habsburg Monarchy grew to European prominence in 1526, when Archduke Ferdinand of Austria, the younger brother of the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, was elected King of Bohemia and Hungary following the death of Louis II, the King of those two countries, in battle against the Turks at Mohacs.
Following the Habsburg defeats in the Wars of 1859 and 1866, this policy was abandoned, and after several years of experimentation in the early 1860s, the famous Ausgleich, or Compromise, of 1867 was arrived at, by which the so-called Dual Monarchy of Austria-Hungary was set up.

 swissinfo - Habsburg legacy lives on in Aargau
My unofficial guide is Jürg Stüssi-Lauterburg who says the early Habsburg rulers were also impressed – because from here, they could control the trade on the highways and rivers, making it easy to levy taxes which increased their wealth, and in times of trouble they could turn the rivers into barriers to keep out invaders.
Despite the strategic location, the Habsburgs suffered defeats at the hands of the Swiss confederates in the 13th and 14th centuries, which forced them to give up their claim to the lands now belonging to Switzerland.

The reason for the great attachment of the peasants to the Habsburg family is not sentimental but religious.
In 1001 Pope Silvester II gave King Stephen I a crown (which is still used) in recognition of his invaluable work in constructing Hungary, cementing the Magyar nationality and firmly establishing the Hungarian Church—Roman Catholic.

The advent of the First World War marked the collapse of the Habsburg Empire; Franz Josef died in 1916 and was succeeded by his great-nephew, the Archduke Charles, as Emperor Charles I, IV as King of Hungary.
The Habsburg Order, therefore, may be regarded as permanently united with the Headship of the Dynasty, just as the Spanish was united with the Crown (when held by Burgundian dynasts).

 Austria - RISE OF THE HABSBURG EMPIRE
Although the Duchy of Austria was just one of the duchies and lands that the Habsburgs eventually acquired in the eastern Alpine-Danubian region, the Habsburgs became known as the House of Austria after the Swiss peasantry ousted them from their original family seat in Habichtsburg in the Swiss canton of Aargau in 1386.

This multilingual, culturally diverse and international empire meant that the head of the Habsburg family was celebrated in a profusion of different ways - from traditional jousts to the dangerous bullfights engaged in by mounted Spanish aristocrats [0148].
The idiom in which the Habsburgs were celebrated derived in part from the chivalresque Burgundian world described in the Chronicles of Olivier de la Marche and partly from the iconography of the Holy Roman Empire.
