The Habsburgs and the Ottomans[eedit | eedit soorce]

Frae the middle ages til the twentieth yeirhunner, Austrick an Turkey wur the core regions athin mair muckle empires. Austrick wis the seat o the Hoose o Habsburg an Turkey wis ruled bi the Hoose o Osman (kent as the Ottoman Dynasty forby). The Habsburg an Ottoman states wur baith muckle multi-ethnic conglomerations sustained bi conquest. These rival empires waged frequent wars agin ilka ither ower control o much Central Europe an the Balkans.

Durin its peak, the Ottoman Empire threitint tae conquer the Austrick caipital o Vienna twice: in 1529 an 1683. Efter the seicont Ottoman defeat at Vienna an the end o the Great Turkis War in 1699, houaniver, the Habsburgs gained the upper haund, an captured Hungary an Croatie frae the Ottomans. Efter thir gains, Austrick wisnae able tae advance intae the Balkans, acause o the rival influence o Roushie, in a stalemate an dispute kent as the Eastren Question. Whiles Ottoman control in the Balkans went intae decline, the Austrians wurnae able tae annex ony new territory until Bosnie in 1908, an e'en that caused a diplomatic crisis (the Bosnie creesis). In the interim, Roushie haed gien help tae seeveral nationalities in the Balkans tae tak up airms agin the Ottomans an create separate nation-states in the Balkans. Efter the culmination o aw the chynges frae the Greek War o Unthirldom (1821–1829) tae the Balkan Wars (1912–1913) the Austrick an Ottoman empires nae langer haed mairches wi ilk ither. This alloued baith tae join the Central Powers as allies durin the First Warld War. The defeat o the Central Powers lead tae baith monarchies bein owerthrawn.
