  2. 30. THE HABSBURGS: THE RISE AND FALL OF A WORLD POWER
    30. THE HABSBURGS: THE RISE AND FALL OF A WORLD POWER

    Martyn Rady will tell the 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 in the fifteenth century. 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 family continued to dominate Central Europe until the catastrophe of the First World War.
