About For Books Danubia: A Personal History of Habsburg Europe Review

https://edubooks.site/?book=0330522795
For centuries, much of Europe was in the hands of the peculiar Habsburg family. An unstable mixture of wizards, obsessives, melancholics, bores, musicians and warriors, they saw off a number of rivals until finally packing up in 1918. Simon Winder's account of the rule of the Habsburgs plunges the reader into a maelstrom of alchemy, skeletons, jewels, bear-moats, unfortunate marriages - and even a guinea-pig village.
