The Minister-President of Austria was the head of government of the Habsburg Monarchy from 1821, when the office of a State Chancellor was created by Emperor Francis for Prince Klemens Wenzel von Metternich, until the abolition of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy in November 1918. The office of an Austrian Minister-President comparable to that of a Prime Minister of an executive monarchy was officially established in the course of the Revolutions of 1848.

After the Austro-Hungarian Compromise of 1867, the office was divided between the Foreign Minister as head of the common k. u. k. Ministers' Council, and the Ministers-President of the Cisleithanian (Austrian) and Transleithanian (Hungarian) parts.

The head of government in Austria since 1918/1920 has been the Federal Chancellor, except for the seven years following the Anschluss in 1938.
