Map of the empire[edit]

Would benefit the article. Ksenon 18:23, 12 February 2006 (UTC)


I see the text "susan kroh was a very important asset to austria's devolepment" at the beginning of this article's text, but when I try to delete it, it does not appear in the edit box. Can someone fix it? Juro 00:04, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

It was on Template:History of Austria. I've removed it. john k 01:31, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

Tried to Fix and Complete Articles[edit]

As an Native Austrian and History Student I tried to complete and correct the Habsburg Monarchy article by adding facts and doing some detail corrections, by using Material and Sources here from Austria. If my work can help to make Wikipedia better and to provide its users correct Informations, I´m very happy to do so.

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was not moved. --BDD (talk) 19:16, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

Habsburg MonarchyHabsburg Hereditary Lands – As the Habsburg possessions never really formed a single entity, (unlike the Austrian Empire) as the name "Habsburg Monarchy" suggests, (like the "Austro-Hungarian Monarchy"). Rather the lands were simply a loose collection of different territories inherited by the members of the House of Habsburg. With only limited centralisation.

  • Oppose, per WP:COMMONNAME and "... lands" implies the lands under the "Monarchy", not the monarchy itself. —Sowlos  06:47, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose, I agree with Sowlos. Moreover, Hungary was part of the Habsburg Monarchy, but it was not among the hereditary lands (unlike, for example, Bohemia after 1620). --Norden1990 (talk) 17:54, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose, I agree with the previous editors' comments.Fakirbakir (talk) 19:25, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose, I agree with the previous editors' comments. Rjensen (talk) 19:29, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose The current title is clearly the common name.--Labattblueboy (talk) 20:36, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Support as the suggestion acctually is a rather common name for this too and I agree with Trajan 117. Cecil Huber (talk) 22:05, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose Only Hungary had special status in Habsburg era. Other lands were just provinces of the Emperor. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bolondcaesar (talkcontribs) 05:39, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

I do not understand the use of the word "appellation" in the lead paragraph:

"The Habsburg Monarchy (or Habsburg Empire) is an unofficial appellation amongst historians for the countries and provinces which were ruled by the junior Austrian branch of the House of Habsburg (1278–1780),"

The link provided is extremely unhelpful:

"An appellation is a legally defined and protected geographical indication used to identify where the grapes for a wine were grown; other types of food often have appellations as well. Restrictions other than geographical boundaries, such as what grapes may be grown, maximum grape yields, alcohol level, and other quality factors, may also apply before an appellation name may legally appear on a wine bottle label."

I really don't see what an "appellation" has to do with the Habsburg Monarchy.

The Wiktionary page is perhaps more helpful in this case (where it defines appellation as "a name, title or designation"). —Sowlos  12:30, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

Habsburg Hereditary Lands[edit]

That shouldn't redirect here, as it refers to a distinct concept from the subject of this article. The term "Habsburg Hereditary Lands" refers not to "all territories held on a hereditary basis by the House of Habsburg" but specifically to the lands held by the Austrian branch of the Habsburgs prior to 1526 - that is, to Upper and Lower Austria, Styria, Carinthia, Carniola, the littoral provinces, Tyrol, the Vorarlberg, and the Vorlände in Southwest Germany. It does not include the Burgundian Lands, the various Iberian and Italian territories, the Lands of the Bohemian Crown, Hungary, or the lands taken in the partitions of Poland, even though some of those territories were held by the family on a hereditary basis. There ought to be an article specifically about the Hereditary Lands, which comprised most of the territory of the present-day Republics of Austria and Slovenia, as well as some territories now in Croatia, Italy, and Germany. john k (talk) 17:55, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

"Habsburg hereditary lands" has existed since 2005; you should either replace it yourself or use WP:RFD. --Joy [shallot] (talk) 18:52, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Cross Language Link[edit]

Link to the Habsburg family tree redirects to the french wiki. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10 December 2013

I was wondering about that. Is this inadequate? --Richardson mcphillips (talk) 23:00, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
Fixed now, thanks. --Joy [shallot] (talk) 20:03, 3 August 2014 (UTC)


Why is the 1556 the start date and why Spanish is all absent? they were Habsburg as anyone else? Hóseás (talk) 11:37, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
