Austria-Hungary, often referred to as the Austro-Hungarian Empire or the Dual Monarchy, was a constitutional monarchy in Central and 

Eastern Europe between 1867 and 1918. It was formed when the Austrian Empire adopted a new constitution; as a result Austria (Cisleithania) and Hungary

(Transleithania) were placed on equal footing. It dissolved into several new states at the end of the First World War. Austria-Hungary was a multinational state

and one of Europe's major powers at the time. Austria-Hungary was geographically the second-largest country in Europe after the Russian Empire, at

621,538 km2 (239,977 sq mi),[7] and the third-most populous (after Russia and the German Empire). The Empire built up the fourth-largest machine building

industry of the world, after the United StatesGermany, and the United Kingdom.[8] Austria-Hungary also became the world's third largest manufacturer

and exporter of electric home appliances, electric industrial appliances and power generation apparatus for power plants, after the United States and the

German Empire.[9][10]
