How did the Habsburgs gain power?

Habsburg Spain refers to Spain over the 16th and 17th centuries (1516–1700), when it was ruled by kings from the House of Habsburg (also associated with its role in the history of Central and Eastern Europe). The Habsburg rulers (chiefly Charles I and Philip II) reached the zenith of their influence and power. They controlled territory that included the Americas, the East Indies, the Low Countries and territories now in France and Germany in Europe, the Portuguese Empire from 1580 to 1640, and various other territories such as small enclaves like Ceuta and Oran in North Africa. This period of Spanish history has also been referred to as the "Age of Expansion". Under the Habsburgs, Spain reached the zenith of its influence and power, but also began its slow decline. The Habsburg years also ushered in the Spanish Golden Age of cultural efflorescence. Among the most outstanding figures of this period were Teresa of Ávila, Pedro Calderón de la Barca, Miguel de Cervantes, El Greco, Domingo de Soto, Francisco Suárez, Diego Velázquez, and Francisco de Vitoria.

In some cases, these individual kingdoms themselves were confederations, such as the Crown of Aragon, the Principality of Catalonia, the Kingdom of Valencia, and the Kingdom of Majorca. The marriage of Isabella I of Castile and Ferdinand II of Aragon in 1469 had enabled the union of two of the greatest of these kingdoms, Castile and Aragón, which led to their largely successful campaign against the Moors, peaking at the conquest of Granada in 1492. Isabella and Ferdinand were bestowed the title of Most Catholic Monarchs by Pope Alexander VI in 1496, and the term Monarchia Catholica (Catholic Monarchy, Modern Spanish: Monarquía Católica) remained in use for the monarchy under the Spanish Habsburgs. The Habsburg period is formative of the notion of "Spain" in the sense that was institutionalized in the 18th century. From the 17th century, during and after the end of the Iberian Union, the Habsburg monarchy in Spain was also known as "Spanish Monarchy" or "Monarchy of Spain", along with the common form Kingdom of Spain. Spain as a unified state came into being de jure only after the Nueva Planta decrees of 1707 (that were a unilateral Royal edict) from the contested successor to the multiple Crowns of its former realms. After the death in 1700 of Charles II and with it the extinction of the Spanish Habsburg dynasty, the Spanish Succession war lasted for many years between its contesting dynasties from France and Austria and their respective supporting allies, until the ascension of Philip V and the inauguration of the Bourbon dynasty when this centralizing legal vehicle for new State formation, without legal precedent in the Iberian realms (or the ratification of the dismissed Courts of Aragon, Catalonia and Valencia, whose Laws were not sworn in order to be crowned) and of clear foreign origin, in all comparable after those in France under the Old Regime Absolutism, were established after de facto.

Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his pregnant wife, Sophie, were assassinated in Sarajevo (then Hungary, part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire) on June 28, 1914, leading to the start of WWI.

Gavrilo Princip, a member of a politicized group of Bosnian Serbs, The Black Hand, shot the Archduke with the intention of breaking Austria-Hungary's control over southern provinces so they could be merged with a portion of Yugoslavia and become a self-governing entity.

Why did Gavrilo Princip kill Archduke Franz Ferdinand?

Gavrilo Princip was a member of the Black Hand, a a Serbian underground resistance group opposed to Austro-Hungarian government and it's occupation of Serbia. They did not want to be part of the Austro-Hungarian empire, and they did not want to pay taxes to them.

There is also some indication he had a personal dislike for the Archduke.

Princip had tuberculosis and knew he was going to die soon. He assassinated the Archduke as a final act of "patriotism" believeing he would not live long enough to receive punishment.

Why was Switzerland neutral during World War 2?

Despite what many people think about Switzerland it wasn't secretly on the side of the Nazis. The Swiss Nazi party was tiny and most Swiss people opposed the Third Reich because of their multicultural heritage, and direct democracy which was and still is a big part of Swiss nationhood. The country was under constant threat of invasion from Nazi Germany, but it was ready to mobilize every man with a gun and fight a guerrilla war to stop the Nazis. Thing is, they would've done it to the allies too if they invaded also.
Switzerland assisted Germany somewhat until near the end of the war, however Switzerland has a fairly long history of remaining neutral during European conflicts. During the Second World War, it was not in Switzerland's interests to opening ally herself with either the Allies or Axis.

In mid-1940 after France was defeated by Germany & Italy, Switzerland was totally surrounded by the Axis Powers. There was no possibility of the Allies lending assistance to Switzerland if she chose to ally herself with them. Switzerland wisely decided not to openly ally herself with Hitler. By 1941, Switzerland had no borders with any Axis enemies. Switzerland had important business & financial ties to numerous nations of both the Allies & Axis, and these remained the primary source of Switzerland economic health.

Princip was a member of the Black Hand (a Serbian terrorist organization). He shot Ferdinand in the throat and his wife Sophia in her stomach. Franz Ferdinand cried out, "Sopherl! Sopherl! Don't die! Keep alive for our children!"

Princip swallowed poison, but the poison failed and he was caught by an angry crowd and beaten. He was then transported to a Theresienstadt prison in Austria to serve a 20 year sentence. Two years into his sentence, he died of tuberculosis.

What changes happened to the countries involved in World War 1?

Well, a number of monarchies changed to republics. People were sick and tired of monarchs deciding to step in war. A large number of countries had revolts to deal with, allthough Russia is the only country to have an actual revolt (next to ALbania) In short. Germany - were bankrupted by the treaty of Versailles and changed from monarchy to republic. the Kaiser fled to Holland. Russia - already during the war, the romanov's were abducted. The country fell into a civil war which led to the communist regime in 1920. America - changed from protective to very protective, claiming they all left Europe previously and not wanted to be involved in any kind of war again. England - the monarchy came under pressure. It barely survived, but the monarch had to live according to the constitution (they weren't an absolute monarchy for some time though. Austria- the Donau monarchy was split in Hungary and Austria, leaving Austria minimalized. Changed into republic. Poland - got back the city of Danzig (Gdansk) from Germany. Ottoman empire - was split up. End of story. Don't know more details. These are a few countries. Overall, it helped to emancipate the working class. On the political front a large number of socialist parties were organized throughout Europe.

What are the locations of four major battles that occured in World War 1 and which side was victorious in these battles?

Caporetto in Italy, where the Allies(G.B., France, and the US) drove back German and Austrian armies;

France in general, largely the scene of the horrific trench warfare that has come to typify the struggle, eventually won by the Allies, but initially, during the Frontiers of France campaign that began the war, a decided German advance checked by desperate reinforcement(some French troops arriving to the front in Parisian cabs).

Russia was also the scene of several major battles, and defeats against the German army, specifically Tannenberg and Masurian Lakes. However, the Russians were not knocked out of the war until the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917.

A fourth and equally decisive campaign was that of the British and Arabs versus the Ottoman Empire in the Middle East, the English victory presaging a long and difficult presence of Western power and influence in Muslim nations for the benefit of internationmal oil cartels. Those important battles were Bagdad, Jersalem, and Gaza, all three scenes of unrest to this very day.

How did alliances help cause World War 1?

Mutual assistance pacts of all types meant that when any one country was involved in a conflict numerous others were automatically called on for and involved.
In the early 20th century the powers of Europe readied them selves for war. Every government know it would happen so they forged allegiance's.

France and Russia had an alliance for many years but in 1907 Britain joined to create The Triple Entente.

Another alliance of powers was signed in 1882 between the Kingdom of Italy, The German Empire and The Austria-Hungary Empire. This was called the Triple Alliance of the Central Powers.

There were many other Alliances between nations in Europe that effected who ended up on what side.

Austria-Hungary had recently annexed Bosnia. This angered the Russians as they believed themselves to be the leaders of the Slavic people. Russia formed an alliance with Serbia.

The act that started the war was the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the heir to the thrown of Austria-Hungary, on 28 June 1914.

Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia and moved troops over the border.

Russia, being allies of Serbia declared war on Austria-Hungary.

Germany, being allies of Austria-Hungary declared war on Russia and France.

Britain had pledge they would help defend Belgium from attack in the The Treaty of London.

Germany tried to sidestep the French forces and attack through Belgium. this brought The British Empire into the war.

The Ottoman Empire was an old enemy of Russia and made an alliance with The Central Powers.

Bulgaria was feeling bitter over a previous defeat at the hands of Serbia and joined the Central Powers (Germany and Austria).

The Queen of Romania was 1st cousins with the King of Britain and the Tzar of Russia and persuaded her husband to join the Entente alliance.

Britain had an alliance with Japan and the Emperor of Japan sent troops to help the British.

Italy did not join the Central Powers as they said they would in the Triple Alliance. Instead Italy joined the Entente Allies in 1915 fighting against the Central Powers.

The USA did not join the war until 1917 after a German Naval attack on The American passenger ship The Lusitania.

The war was not only in Europe but also in the colonies in African, Asia and the Pacific.

Had there been no Alliances the war would have been between Austria-Hungary and Serbia.

What is mean by compensated and uncompensated power transmission line?

Power is transmitted to loads/consumers via transmission lines. And the transmitted power is aparrant power ( i.e. it's the sum of active power and reactive power). Generally ,some load (inductive loads) consumes reactive power along with active power. Which leads to voltage fluctuations at consumer's side. To provide the reactive power needed by the load, Capacitors (Gives reactive power) are connected in series/parallel to the transmission line. This process is called Compensation of power transmission line. Without compensation the voltage at the recieving end would change alot. Compensation increases efficiency of the transmission. In short.. =>Compensated line-->Line with capacitors connected in series/parallel. =>Uncompensated line-->Line without any reactive power providers. NOTE: for compesation we can use any component that has ability to provide reactive power (ex. capacitors, synchronous machines etc.)
