With the Onate treaty, Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand II obtained the support of the Spanish Habsburgs in the succession of his childless cousin Matthias, in exchange for concessions in Alsace and Italy.

The marriage of Maximilian I to Mary of Burgundy enabled the Habsburg dynasty to gain a foothold in western Europe, in particular in territories such as Flanders and Brabant.

Based on this I think you would like the book Danubia by Simon Winder. Which details about the Habsburgs from the start until ca. WW I.

By 1617, it was apparent that Matthias, Holy Roman Emperor, would die without an heir. His lands would go to his nearest male relative, his cousin Archduke Ferdinand of Austria.
