He (or they) was part of the Central Powers of World War I. After the war he dissolved into Austriaball, Hungaryball, Czechoslovakiaball, and Yugoslaviaball. He (or they) suffered from chronic bipolar disorder.
Austro-Hungarian Compromise (1867-1900): Edit
Before 1867, Austrian Empireball (known also as Habsburgball) was a moderately powerful countryball in Central Europe.
In 1866, he was defeated by Prussiaball and the North German Confederation, making internal tensions since 1848 between himself and his other soul Hungaryball quite hot. So, in 1867 he agreed to become Austria-Hungaryball after the
Fusion Dance Austro-Hungarian Compromise of 1867 was signed.
He established good relationships with the newly-formed German Empireball in 1873, forming the League of Three Emperors with Russiaball, but this was dissolved later, after the 1878 Russo-Turkish War, and in 1882, Austria-Hungaryball joined Italyball and German Empireball to form the Triple Alliance against the Entente.
Aggression and World War I (1900-1918): Edit
Austria-Hungaryball was made up of many ethnicities, nationalities, and religions, so when he annexed Bosniaball from the Ottoman Empireball in 1908, this caused tensions in the Balkan region with himself and Russiaball, who also wanted to control the area.
He became increasingly aggressive to Serbiaball, so when he murdered Austria-Hungaryball's Archduke in June 1914, Austria-Hungaryball mobilized against him, supported by German Empireball, while Russiaball also mobilized against them to protect Serbiaball, along with Franceball, and UKball stepped in to defend Belgiumball from German Empireball's Schliffen Plan offensives, being now in full Reichtangle mode.
Austria-Hungaryball captured Belgrade in early 1915, but lost Premyszl to Russian Empireball's troops, but the 1915 Gorlitz-Tarnow offensive turned things around, and by 1917 Russiaball was on the retreat. He also fought Italyball in the Alips, but was defeated at Caporetto in 1917.
Then Russian Empireball had his Revolutions, and left the war when he was murdered by his son Bolshevikball, who became Sovietball a few years later. As for Austria-Hungaryball, by 1918 he was falling apart, and Hungaryball, Czechoslovakiaball, and Yugoslaviaball declared independence and left him.
He surrendered in October 1918, and the Treaties of Saint-Germain and Trianon at the Versailles Peace conference sorted out the chaotic jumble of territories of the former Empire's clay. Austriaball and Hungaryball are considered to be the now deceased Austria-Hungaryball's successors.
