For centuries, vast swaths of Europe were ruled by the Habsburg family. An unstable mixture of autocrats, obsessives, wizards and melancholics, they saw off many rivals before they were finally toppled in 1918. This entertaining, richly anecdotal history leads the reader through their Central European heartlands from Vienna to Transylvania, Prague to Sarajevo. Negotiating a labyrinth of intrigue, war, alchemy and religion, it charts the fortunes of this eccentric dynasty and the many peoples of its ramshackle empire. Previously available from Postscript as a paperback.
