              For many years, scholars struggled to write the history of the constitution and political structure of the Holy Roman Empire. This book argues that this was because the political and social order could not be understood without considering the rituals and symbols that held the Em...pire together.

              Kaum jemand kennt sie, die Kaiserinnen des Heiligen Romischen Reichs in der Fruhen Neuzeit - mit der bezeichnenden Ausnahme der grossen Maria Theresia, Tochter Karls VI. und Gemahlin Franz' I. Doch auch die anderen, unbekannten Kaiserinnen waren weit mehr als lediglich die Gemahl...innen ihrer kaiserlichen Ehemanner und Stammmutter der Dynastie. Dank ihrer je spezifischen Ausstattung mit okonomischem, sozialem und kulturellem Kapital durch ihre Herkunftsfamilien wurden sie zu wichtigen Akteurinnen am Kaiserhof, die eine Vielzahl unterschiedlicher Aktivitaten entfalteten: Sie wirkten als Vermittlerinnen im Kulturtransfer, forderten als Mazeninnen Kunst und Wissenschaften und spielten eine zentrale Rolle im religiosen Leben des Hofes. Aber sie waren auch Ansprechpartnerinnen fur auslandische Gesandte und galten teilweise als Kopf einer eigenen Hofpartei. Der Band bietet erstmals einen Uberblick uber eine reprasentative Auswahl dieser Furstinnen und zeigt, dass sie weit mehr waren als nur die Frau des Kaisers.

              From acclaimed historian Barbara Stollberg-Rilinger, an incomparable introduction to this momentous period in the history of Europe The Holy Roman Empire emerged in the Middle Ages as a loosely integrated union of German states and city-states under the supreme rule of an emperor..., and would endure until its dissolution in 1806 during the Napoleonic Wars. Barbara Stollberg-Rilinger provides a concise history of empire, presenting an interpretation of its unique political culture and remarkably durable institutions. In a narrative spanning three turbulent centuries, Stollberg-Rilinger shows how it was a political body unlike any other, bound together by personal loyalty and reciprocity, tradition and shared purpose, and constantly reenacted by solemn rituals.

              A major new biography of the iconic Austrian empress that challenges the many myths about her life and rule Maria Theresa (1717-1780) was once the most powerful woman in Europe. At the age of twenty-three, she ascended to the throne of the Habsburg Empire, a far-flung realm compo...sed of diverse ethnicities and languages, beset on all sides by enemies and rivals. Barbara Stollberg-Rilinger provides the definitive biography of Maria Theresa, situating this exceptional empress within her time while dispelling the myths surrounding her. Drawing on a wealth of archival evidence, Stollberg-Rilinger examines all facets of eighteenth-century society, from piety and patronage to sexuality and childcare, ceremonial life at court, diplomacy, and the everyday indignities of warfare. She challenges the idealized image of Maria Theresa as an enlightened reformer and mother of her lands who embodied both feminine beauty and virile bellicosity, showing how she despised the ideas of Enlightenment, treated her children with relentless austerity, and mercilessly persecuted Protestants and Jews. Work, consistent physical and mental discipline, and fear of God were the principles Maria Theresa lived by, and she demanded the same from her family, her court, and her subjects. A panoramic work of scholarship that brings Europe's age of empire spectacularly to life, Maria Theresa paints an unforgettable portrait of the uncompromising yet singularly charismatic woman who left her enduring mark on the era in which she lived and reigned.
