Languages of publication
The study deals with the issue of internal and external policy of the Habsburg monarchy in 1806 – 1809 in the context of military history. The emphasis is put on the internal political struggle of the individual fractions of the highest government circles, especially in the issue of external policy towards France. Firstly, the study narrates the situation in Europe in the stormy epoch of Napoleon wars, also analysing the internal political relations in the empire after the Slavkov catastrophe and the foreign policy issue until 1808. Secondly deals with preparations for the declaration of war by France following the Spanish uprising. The author based his study mostly on the Czech and Austrian literature. The revanchist efforts of Vienna following Slavkov were still very strong and finally had significant impact on the decision to declare war on France in the spring of 1809.
