Schemel Forum Evening Course:

The Habsburg Monarchy 1519-1918

Few dynasties had a greater impact on European History than the Habsburgs. They played a central role in the Reformation, the Thirty Years’ War, the Enlightenment, the French Revolution, the Industrial Revolution and WWI.  This course will examine its pivotal monarchs:  “the most powerful man in the world”, Charles V; the defender of Catholicism, Ferdinand II; the enlightened despots Maria Theresa and Joseph II; the archenemy of Revolution, Franz II; the “eternal Kaiser,” Franz Joseph and conclude with an examination of the end of Habsburg rule a century ago during the reign of Karl II and its afterlife under his son Otto.
