“The Austro-Hungarian Empire [1867-1918] was the first unwanted experiment of a unified Middle Europe. It consisted of such diverse national groups with different languages and backgrounds as Italian, Romanian, Slovakian, Serbian, Croatian, German, and Hungarian. As long as these groups were antagonizing each other, the Hapsburgs of Austria could impose their authority. But as soon as efforts of agreement and union were successful, the Hapsburgs lost control.”
