The Habsburgs: Embodying Empire

"Splendidly rich...required reading for anyone who hopes to understand the real Europe."âDaily Telegraph. The Habsburgs have been described at one extreme as demons â responsible for a âlong history of atrocitiesâ; and, at the other, as dodos â living fossils unable to adapt to the modern world. In reality, the flamboyant royal family appear, in many ways, to have behaved much like most other monarchies. Their story, however, is none the less enthralling for that. It is populated by such unforgettable figures as mad Queen Juana, progressing through Spain with her husbandâs decaying body; the âheroically fertileâ Maria Theresa, and the quixotic Maximilian, âEmperorâ of Mexico.
