* WhatTheHellHero: The usual treatment of the Austrian Habsburgs during UsefulNotes/TheNapoleonicWars is basically that of the Coalition's TokenEvilTeammate when compared the British and Prussians (or the Russians, if you are reading Creator/LeoTolstoy).

* WrongGenreSavvy: Some interpretations of the Habsburgs and their domains tend to paint them as being akin to characters straight out of [[Series/GameOfThrones Westeros]] than the modern world.

The Habsburg Empire was not a normal empire. Even when UsefulNotes/{{Austria}} was the premier power, its preeminence was not the same as that of [[UsefulNotes/TsaristRussia Russia under the Czars]]. Rather the Habsburgs, one of the [[BlueBlood great houses of Europe]], were the feudal system taken to its logical extreme, with dozens of nations having no connection to one another except their joint allegiance to the Habsburg [[TheClan Family]]. (Note that the spelling "Hapsburg," common in older English translations, is not considered the most correct.) Therefore it is proper to refer to their state (and by extension its military) by reference to The Family. ([[TheFamilyForTheWholeFamily Not that one]] [[NotSoDifferent despite occasional resemblances]].)

* The [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic]] ''NineteenEightyThreeDoomsday'' fics for ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' take place in and around Austria, with a number of nods to Franz Joseph and the Habsburg Empire in general. Including the embodiment's [[spoiler:brutally cut short]] "marriage" to Hungary.

* BornInTheWrongCentury: Austria under the Habsburgs had the strange honor of being seen as both [[{{Ruritania}} bafflingly backward for its time]] and oddly ''progressive'' for the era, which tends to show in works and folklore involving the Empire. Among other things, the Empire pre-UsefulNotes/WorldWarI was a multicultural and multinational hotbed...in an Europe where ethnic nationalism and the effects of the "Springtime of Nations" were still in vogue.

Inherent weakness and fragility of multicultural countries (on display even today) eventually brought down the empire.
