The history of Austria covers the history of Austria and its predecessor states, from the early Stone Age to the present state. The name Ostarrîchi (Austria) has been in use since 996 AD when it was a margravate of the Duchy of Bavaria and from 1156 an independent duchy (later archduchy ) of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation ( Heiliges Römisches Reich 962–1806).

Following the First Republic, Austrofascism tried to keep Austria independent from the German Reich . Engelbert Dollfuss accepted that Austrians were Germans but wanted Austria to remain independent from a largely Protestant Germany. In 1938 Austrian-born Adolf Hitler annexed Austria to the German Reich with the Anschluss , which was supported by a large majority of the Austrian people . [1] [2] After the Second World War Austria again became an independent republic as the Second Republic in 1955 and joined the European Union in 1995.

The history of Austria raises a number of questions. Should it be confined to the current Republic of Austria, or to all lands formerly ruled by the rulers of Austria? Should Austrian history include 1938–1945 when it did not exist? Of the lands now part of modern Austria, many were added over time – only two of the nine provinces or Länder (Lower Austria and Upper Austria) are strictly 'Austria', while other parts are now part of countries like Italy or the Czech Republic. Within Austria there are large regional variations, and parts of Austria have at various times wished to become part of adjacent countries. [3]
