I made a video showing the year-by-year rise and fall of both Austria and Prussia. Germany is included. Tell me what you think!

Interesting to see how Austria and Prussia (where my ancestors lived) rose and fell.

Thank you!:)

Yes!
Following the failure of both Emperor Joseph I and Emperor Charles VI to produce a son and heir, the Pragmatic Sanction of 1713 left the throne to the latter's yet unborn daughter, Maria Theresa. In 1736 Emperor Charles arranged her marriage to Francis of Lorraine who agreed to exchange his hereditary lands for the Grand Duchy of Tuscany (as well as Duchy of Teschen from the Emperor).

Interesting I also like the music.
The Brandenburgische Konzerte by Bach is the right piece for Prussia, but for Austria something by Wolfgang Amadeus M. or Haydn might be more suitable.:lol:
