Review on Austria and Prussia

·      Formation of Austria
o   Why do the Habsburgs shift their attention East?
o   How do they attempt to assert their control over the region militarily and religiously?  Was this limited in any way?
o   How did the nobles continue to assert control over the peasantry?
o   How did Charles VI ensure that Austria would remain unified after his death?
·      Prussia
o   Who were the Estates?  How did they change after the thirty years’ war, and how did this allow the Great Elector Frederick William to gain power?
o   In what ways does the Great Elector assert further control over the Junkers, and why do they agree to this?

o   In what ways does Frederick William I assert absolutism over Prussia?
