1781 Annals of Maria Theresa HAPSBURG Austria Holy Roman Empire Illustrated

A rare, 18th-century account of the life and reign of Maria Theresa of the Holy Roman Empire and the Hapsburgs. Written by abbe Fromageot, this work is a supportive treatise which, according to Russell and Coote, omitted many of the ills and controversies of Maria Theresa’s reign. In fact, these experts claim that much of the work features ‘wilful suppression’ of these details to ensure the princess’s positive views.
