Francis Josef I (German Franz Josef) (1830-1916) Francis Josef I, emperor of Austria
(1848-1916) and king of Hungary (1867-1916) was the last important ruler of the Habsburg
dynasty; his policies played a major role in the events that led to World War I (1914-1918).
In 1867, Emperor Francis Joseph was forced to come to a compromise with the Hungarian nation.
The compromise gave Hungary its own constitution and a nearly independent status. After 1867
the empire was known as Austria-Hungary, and popularly referred to as the dual monarchy.
Austria and Hungary were separate states, each with its own constitution, government, parliament,
and language. The Magyars predominated in Hungary while the Germans had a privileged
position in Austria. The two states were linked by a single monarch, who was emperor in Austria
and King in Hungary, and by common ministers of foreign affairs, war, and finance.
Charles I (1887-1922) Charles I (of Austria) was emperor of Austria (1916-1918) and, as Charles
IV, king of Hungary and was the last Austro-Hungarian monarch and the last of the Habsburg
In 1892 Austria adopted the gold standard with 1 Corona = 100 Heller.
Austrian coins minted for use in Hungary (not pictured) are different from coins intended to be
used in Austria.
