Book Description Book Condition: New. In 1848, the Year of Revolutions, the popular but feeble-minded Emperor Ferdinand of Austria abdicated and his heir Archduke Francis Charles renounced his place in the succession in favour of his son. At eighteen, Francis Joseph began a reign which would last for almost sixty-eight years, longer than any other modern European monarch. As a ruler he tempered absolutism with reform, introducing general suffrage and presiding over the Reichsrat, the forerunner of a constitutional parliament. However, his reign was also tainted with political disaster, and the decline of the Habsburg Empire was exacerbated by the horrific events in Francis Joseph's own family -- among other tragedies, the assassination of his nephew Francis Ferdinand at Sarajevo precipitated the First World War. Set against the turbulent background of nineteenth-century Europe, this is the story of the man who was to all intents and purposes the last Emperor of Austria. Bookseller Inventory # 2202
