Austria is a country in Europa Universalis II. It is an Elector of the Holy Roman Empire, and a major power. In normal games its provinces are coloured white, in fantasia games, they are coloured light orange.
Austria represents the holdings of the Austrian branch of the Habsburg (or Hapsburg) family. It should not be confused with the province of Austria.
Creating Austria Edit
Should it cease to exist, Austria can be recreated by revolt or releasing a vassal at any point in the game. It will have its normal latin techgroup. Its culture and religion are not stated in revolt.txt, but will be German and almost always Catholic.
The following provinces can form Austria:
- Austria (the default capital)
The following provinces can be part of a newly formed Austria, but can not form it themselves:
Starting Position Edit
Austria exists at the start of all the main scenarios.
It owns and controls twelve core provinces, and there are three cores that it does not own.
It owns and controls fourteen core provinces, and there are seven cores that it does not own.
It owns and controls twenty-one provinces, nineteen of which are cores. It has 13 cores that it does not own or control. It also has a temporary casus belli against Spain, lasting until 4th June 1746, representing the War of Spanish Succession.
It owns and controls twenty-seven of its core provinces, but neither owns nor controls a further seven cores.
Austria owns and controls 25 of its core provinces, and has seven cores that it neither owns nor controls.
AI Behaviour Edit
In the 1795 scenario, Austria starts with the Anti-French AI file. Otherwise, it uses the Habsburg ai file.
Austria has no areas to colonize, and has an expansion value of 0, making it very unlikely to start colonies or trading posts. If it does start them, it has an 80% chance of creating a trading post, rather than a colony. It has a bonus of 10 to start colonies next to its existing territory, and a bonus of 10 against starting them next to another country.
Austria has only a 50 (compared to default 100) setting for sending out traders, and is not very inclined to block trade (having only 5 out of 100, compared to the default of 25).
Austria is set to go counter-reform.
Austria is willing to fight further from its capital than the default AI (3.0 vs 0.5) and less likely to focus on defending/liberating its own provinces (1.5 vs 2.0). All other settings are identical to the default AI.

In Vanilla EU2, Austria has three events files. A flavor events file (containing just two events, with minor effects - listed in their own section), a major events file, and a special events file (containing just The Restoration of the French Monarchy). There is also a single Austria event (The Habsburg Inheritance of Hungary) that is in the events file for Hungary
Inheritance Events Edit
The Habsburg dynasty inherited a lot of territory throughout its existence. There are a number of events that depict these inheritances. The inheritance of Bohemia is listed under the Bohemian Events section.
The Habsburg Inheritance of Burgundy / France Inherits Burgundy
These two events are triggered by different outcomes of an event for Burgundy. The Burgundian event happens at any time between 3rd June 1476 and 4th June 1484, as long as France and Burgundy both exist, and Burgundy is not at war. If Burgundy goes for option A (the usual choice), then the Habsburgs inherit Burgundy. If they go for option B, France inherits it. If they go for option C, neither event happens.
Before either inheritance happens, Burgundy will grant independence to certain countries and, if relevant, cede certain provinces to the country that does not inherit. Though these are part of Burgundy's events, they are listed here.
|Diplomacy||+3 for 60 months|
|Casus Belli||vs France for 24 months|
|New Austrian Cores||Artois, Franche Comte, Brabant, Flandern, Friesen, Geldre, Holland, Luxembourg, Zeeland||Artois, Franche Comte, Borgogne|
|Territories ceded by Burgundy||Artois, Auvergne, Berri, Borgogne, Calais, Caux, Cevennes, Champagne, Dauphine, Franche Comte, Limousin, Lyonnais, Maine, Nivernais, Orleanais, Picardie, and Savoie to France||Alsace, Franche Comte, Hessen, Koln*, Lorraine*, Mainz, and Pfalz to Austria|
|Independence from Burgundy||Cologne, Friesland, Gelre, Hannover, Kleves, Lorraine, The Palatinat||Cologne, Friesland, Gelre, Hannover, Kleves, Lorraine, The Palatinat|
|Revolts||2 revolts each in Munster, Oldenburg, and Bremen, if they are owned by Burgundy||2 revolts each in Munster, Oldenburg, and Bremen, if they are owned by Burgundy|
Note that the event cedes the territories marked * to Austria, but they will have become independent before that happens.
The Martial Inheritance of Brittany
This event is triggered by an event for Brittany, which happen if Austria or France inherited Burgandy. There are two (identically named) versions of both Brittany's and Austria's events, depending on who inherited Burgandy. Brittany's events are triggered if both Austria and France exist at any point between 9th September 1488 and 22nd December 1491, and happen up to 30 days after the trigger. The Austrian event only happens if Brittany chooses the first of two options.
If Austria inherited Burgandy, they lose 50 relations with France, lose 100 ducats, and gain cores on Artois and Franche Comte (though unless they have been eliminated and recreated since inheriting Burgundy, they will already have those cores).
The Habsburg Inheritance of Milano
This is triggered by an event for Milan. If both Austria and France exist at any point in the year 1500, and Milan picks the first of three options (their usual choice), then this event happens. Milan's event creates both a royal marriage and a military alliance between Milan and Austria. The Austrian event has two options. Option A is Rule as Separate Country. Option B is Rule as part of Austria.
Because Milan can be at war when this happens, the inheritance option can be exploited by another country.
|Effect||Independent Milan||Austrian Milan|
|Milan's Status||Vassal of Austria||Inherited by Austria|
|Cores||-||Core on Lombardia|
|Revolt Risk||-||+6 in Lombardia|
|Relations||Alliance with Milan||-180 with France|
The Habsburg Inheritance of Hungary
This event is triggered if Hungary chooses the first of two options in The Death of King Lajos of Hungary. The Hungarian event happens if Austria exists, Hungary owns Maros, Magyar, and Pest, and the Ottomans control all three provinces at any point between 13th March 1516 and 21st July 1540.
The Hungarian event cedes up to 13 provinces from Hungary to Austria: Bohemia, Carparthia, Erz, Istria, Krain, Moravia, Odenburg, Ostmarch, Presburg, Salzburg, Silesia, Steiermark, and Sudeten. There is a related event for the Ottomans, which means they inherit what's left of Hungary after it cedes these provinces.
The Austrian event gives Austria cores on the following 12 provinces: Banat, Carparthia, Croatia, Krain, Magyar, Maros, Odenburg, Pest, Presburg, Ruthenia, Serbia, and Transylvania. It also gives Austria +3 stability, -3 Centralization and +2 Aristocracy.
The Habsburg Inheritance of Lothringen
This event is triggered by an event chain for Poland, Saxony, and Lorraine. The event chain does not happen if Poland chooses option C (Jakub Sobieski) in The Polish Succession of 1697. Otherwise, the chain is triggered by The Polish Succession of 1733, which happens on the 30th of January 1733. If Poland selects option A, Friedrich Augustus Wettin, the sequence takes in an event for Saxony, if they instead select option B Stanislas Leczinski, that event gets skipped. If any of the countries don't exist at this point, their events cannot happen.
The Partition of Poland
There are two events of this name. Both are triggered by Polish events, which are triggered solely by dates.
The first Polish event is triggered up to 10 days after 10th September 1764, though if Poland does not exist and is recreated it can happen up to 1st January 1772. The second Polish event is triggered up to 10 days after 1st January 1788, though if Poland does not exist and is recreated it can happen up to 1st January 1792. In both cases, the Austrian events happen if Poland chooses the first of two options.
The first event adds Galizien as a core. The second event adds Krakow and Podlasia as cores.
Relations with Spain Edit
For most of the duration of the game, there were two branches of the Habsburg / Hapsburg dynasty. This section lists events that detail the Austrian Habsburg's relationship with their Spanish cousins.
The Spanish Wedding
This event happens during the year 1519 as long as Spain exists and is not at war with Austria. It happens up to five days after the trigger, and represents the creation of the Spanish branch of the family. There are two options. Option A is Let the Habsburg Empire be ruled from Vienna. Option B is Let the Habsburg Empire be ruled from Madrid. The two options trigger different events for Spain (which give Spain the same effects Austria would have had from the other option). Either way, the two empires gain an alliance and a royal marriage.
|Relations|| +50 with Spain.
Spain becomes vassal.
| +400 with Spain.
Austria becomes vassal.
The Abdication of Charles V
In real life, Habsburg Emperor Charles V abdicated the throne, and gave many of the territories owned by the Austrian Habsburgs to the Spanish ones. There are two different versions of this event, depending on whether Austria inherited Burgundy earlier in the game. Both require Spain to exist. The event triggers on 29th September 1556. If Austria did not inherit, the event gives Austria +1 stability and triggers a Spanish event. If Austria did inherit, there are three options, in which different amounts of territory are ceded to Spain. Option A Give all the possessions to Philip cedes most dutch and italian possessions to Spain. Option B Let Ferdinand keep the Netherlands and Option C Let Ferdinand keep the Italian possessions allow Austria to keep more of its territory.
|Effect||Cede all||Keep Netherlands||Keep Italy|
|Cede (Italy)||Apulia, Emilia, Firenze, Liguria, Lombardia, Mantua, Marche, Napoli, Roma, Piemonte, Romagna, Savoie, Siena, and Veneto to Spain||Apulia, Emilia, Firenze, Liguria, Lombardia, Mantua, Marche, Napoli, Roma, Piemonte, Romagna, Savoie, Siena, and Veneto to Spain||-|

|Cores (Other)||Lose core on Franche Comte||Lose core on Franche Comte||Lose core on Franche Comte|
Phillip of Bourbon succedes Carlos II in Spain / Charles of Habsburg succedes Carlos II in Spain
These events concerns the historical demise of the Spanish Habsburgs, and the war of Spanish succession. One (but not both) of these events will be triggered by a Spanish event, which happens on 1st or 2nd of November 1700. If Phillip of Bourbon succeeds (the most likely option), Austria has two options. Option A is No it ours ("it" being the Spanish throne). Option B is We must accept the will of poor Carlos. If it's Charles of Habsburg, then there are no options.
|Relations (Spain)||-150, Casus belli (36 months)||+150||+400|
|Relations (France)||-150, Casus belli (36 months)||+150||-150|
|Cores||Add Artois, Brabant, Flandern, Lombardia, Mantua||-||-|
