The End of the Habsburg Empire
11th November 1918 - 100th Anniversary.

The death of Emperor Franz Joseph in 1916 marked the symbolic end of the Monarchy, although it did not collapse until the end of World War I in 1918, when Emperor Charles I, his successor, abdicated and new nation states were established in the former Habsburg territories.

During their 650-year reign, from 1273 - 1918, the Habsburgs, like no other dynasty, influenced European politics and culture.
