APH: Austria the jerk by Cadaska APH: Austria the jerk by Cadaska
EDIT: The Thirty Years War was thirty years long so obviously it couldn't have ended in 1638! God I suck XD




I love Austria/Hungary, please don’t take this too seriously. I just wanted to correct the image that Austria was a harmless cake-baking, piano-playing sissy who avoided wars. He was in fact quite a warmonger (which did not stop him from marrying off his people on every occasion). But of course the ‘I’m beautiful and harmless and love Mozart, coffee and cake’ stereotype sells better.

Panel 4: [link]
The motto I chose is one of 300 interpretations of Frederick of Habsburg's A.E.I.O.U.But Frederick probably just wanted it to stand for "Alles Erdreich ist Österreich untertan", the whole world is subject to Austria. There are interpretations like "Allen Ernstes ist Österreich unwiderstehlich" (in all honesty, Austria is irresistible)[link]

Most of the time in the 30 years war, Prussia wasn't on Austria's side (he was protestant). He wasn't really pro-protestant either and just wanted to be left alone. So in the end, both sides invaded him. Poor guy.

Austria actually had to call Russia for help to defeat Hungary in 1848.

I don't agree with America in the last panel, I just like the mental image.



Austria probably doesn't miss his empire because the time after World War II made him realize what’s really important
Still, sometimes he sits alone in his room, listens to ‘Viva la Vida’ by Coldplay and cries (England, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands and France do it too – it’s something only former empires can understand) :XD:

No. The Habsburgs ruled over Spain's empire. I think it would have been weird to write that Austria himself ruled Spain. Not entirely wrong since Spain was ruled by a spanish branch of the Habsburg house, but still...

"[Prussia's] ruler had to change his name once because Austria's didn't like it." I remember this(reading books about Prussia). This would be King Friedrich I correct? His title was King 'in' Prussia, not 'of' Prussia.

In 1704 Austria and his Allies did invade Bavaria. But yeah, Bavaria invaded Austria first so Austria kind of 'invaded him back'.

True, true ^^
Though, then again.. it might just be because we think on a different scale. When we hear about a massacre somewhere, we think bad about the ones responsible for it because we're humans. If nations actually had a personification, I'm sure they wouldn't be nearly as disturbed as we would... Just a random thought I had ^^
