The Habsburgs: To Rule the World

In a Sunday Times, Financial Times, TLS and Daily Telegraph Book of the Year 2020, Martyn Rady tells an epic story of a dynasty and the world it built –  and then lost –  over nearly a millennium. From modest origins, the Habsburgs grew in power to gain control of the Holy Roman Empire. Then, in just a few decades, their possessions rapidly expanded to take in a large part of Europe stretching from Hungary to Spain, and from the Far East to the New World. The Hapsburgs were a remarkable dynasty that, for better or for worse, shaped Europe and the World.
