Maria Theresa and Hungary

Maria Theresa and Hungary

(p.17) 2 Maria Theresa and Hungary
Austria, Hungary, and the Habsburgs

R. J. W. Evans

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents an essay concerning the place of Hungary in the Habsburg Monarchy during the centralist reform begun by Queen Maria Theresa and continued by her son Joseph II. It suggests that Maria Theresa cooperated enough with the ruling elite in Hungary to achieve a significant part of her programme. However, elemental antagonisms persisted and these subsequently frustrated almost all of Joseph's reform measures. Even the accomplishments of Maria Theresa created a gap between Hungary and the rest of the Habsburg lands.

Keywords:   Maria Theresa, Joseph II, centralist reform, Hungary, Habsburg Monarchy
