  Habsburg Monarchy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Habsburg Monarchy, often called Austrian Monarchy or simply Austria, are 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 prominance in 1526, when Archduke Ferdinand of Austria, the younger brother of 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.

 Habsburg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Austrian Habsburgs held (after 1556) the title of Holy Roman Emperor, as well as the Habsburg Hereditary Lands and the Kingdoms of Bohemia and Hungary, while the Spanish Habsburgs ruled over the Spanish kingdoms, the Netherlands, the Habsburgs' Italian possessions, and, for a time, Portugal.
However, the heiress of the last Austrian Habsburg (Maria Theresa) had married Francis Stephan Duke of Lorraine, (both of them were great-grandchildren of Habsburg Emperor Ferdinand III, but from different empresses) and their descendants carried on the Habsburg tradition from Vienna under the dynastic name Habsburg-Lorraine.
The kingship of Hungary remained in the Habsburg family for centuries; but as the kingship was not strictly inherited and was sometimes used as a training ground for young Habsburgs, the dates of rule do not always match those of the primary Habsburg possessions.

 The Strength of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy in 1914 - John Garland
Austria-Hungary was a dynastic state, a survival from the ancien régime in an age of rampant nationalism, a monarchy based upon peasant loyalty to their feudal lord in an era of burgeoning capitalism.
Among the Germans, Georg von Schoenerer, leader of the German National Movement, preached the destruction of the Habsburg Monarchy, the superiority of the German race, and violent anti-Semitism.
John Garland concludes the discussion in the December issue, in a second article, in which the strengths of the Austrian Monarchy are outlined, and the article concludes with an overall assessment of the Habsburg Monarchy's strength in 1914.

It was the efforts of the Habsburg emperors from 1815 until 1914 to preserve that structure in the face of forces eroding their hegemonial rule over territories and nations under their control that was the primary dysfunctional force.

 The Nationalism Project: Book Review of The Dissolution of the Hapsburg Monarchy
Jaszi highlights the anachronistic nature of the Austro-Hungarian Dual Monarchy as contributing to the three key causes of its dissolution.
Jaszi focuses on the Empire's internal incoherencies, structural contradictions and the monarchy's inability (or unwillingness) to undertake crucial changes in either domestic or foreign policy (6).
Instead of energetically promoting an overarching state identity and inter-national solidarity, education remained restricted to the glorification of the Habsburg dynasty as the sole source of the state's legitimacy and identity.

 Lawyers, Guns and Money: Book Review: The Habsburg Monarchy
The Habsburgs ruled the various nations through a number of different methods; what passed for state authority differed between Poland and Croatia.
In this, the Habsburgs were the last true European empire, in the sense that an empire is a different critter than a unitary nation-state (I understand that Russia may be an exception to this).
The odd union of nationalism and liberalism finally finished the empire off, although even Woodrow Wilson envisioned the survival of Austria-Hungary as a federal monarchy after World War I. Nationalism and liberalism don't tend to mix well; one is premised on a non-voluntary community, the other on the primacy of the individual.
