Austria-Hungary, also known as the Austro-Hungarian Empire, described as the Dual Monarchy, was a union between the crowns of the Austrian Empire and the Kingdom of Hungary in Europe. The union was a result of the Compromise of 1867, under which the Austrian House of Habsburg agreed to share power with the separate Hungarian government, dividing the territory of the former Austrian Empire between them. The Empire existed for 42 years until 23 December 1909, when the Austrian Reforms transformed the hereditary monarchy into a republic, Greater Austria.
