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.

Archduke Joseph (1776-1847) was the son of Holy Roman Emperor Leopold II and Maria Luisa of Spain. In 1796 Joseph was made Palatine of Hungary. He was the founder of the Hungarian branch of the Habsburg family.

Albert I of Hapsburg married Elisabeth of Gorizia-Tyrol in 1271. They had twenty-one children, the highest number of offspring from a Hapsburg marriage in the history of the dynasty.

21 children. That's truly remarkable. In my own family in Ireland,  My father's uncle married a 16 year old in around 1916. She had 19 living children and managed to outlive him, which was an accomplishment in those days. Though she was deaf as a post an nearly totally bald after 65 because her hormones were shot from being constantly preggo for 25 years.

Reminds me of that hardcore "Christian" family the Duggars in the USA, of which a show was made:

https://en.wikipedia.org/...ids_and_Counting#Children


And about that couple in the UK with about the same amount of children. Recently it was in the news mom is pregnant again:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radford_family

Expecting nr 22 (as this one survives they will have 21 kids, as one (nr. 17) has died):

Frederick III was elected in 1440 Roman-German king. An ally of Frederick was Pope Nicholas V. In 1448, the two concluded the Vienna Concordat.

Karl recently lost a case with the Austrian court about using the title von Habsburg.

But aside from star allures they're all keeping a very low profile. I once met/saw Francesca at the opening of an exhibition (which she moderated). She comes across very nice and reminds me in fact a bit of Camilla. She would make a great Empress. Albeit the staunch monarchists think she's not worth it.

Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand I set up several new central administrative authorities. The Secret Council was responsible for foreign affairs and dynastic affairs.
