Military Culture and Dynastic Self-Representation in Habsburg Austria

Military Culture and Popular Patriotism in Late Imperial Austria

This chapter outlines the development of the military in the Habsburg Monarchy and assesses its impact on dynastic self-representation. By considering the use of public space in the propagation of military images and values, the chapter shows how a notably more martial character to representations of the dynasty developed during the long reign of Emperor Franz Joseph I (1848–1916). The examination of the political centre establishes a framework for the understanding of patriotic activities and the official emphasis on the military in public life.
