Abstract

The political and geographical area of modern Austria and Germany differs basically from those of the middle ages, although there are connections between the historical structures and the modern ones. And there are relations between the rulers here and there. For instance, there were family-relations in those geographical areas in medieval times, other personal relations, and similarities of constructing one’s political power. This session gives some examples of those personal connections of ‘Austria’ and ‘Germany’ which are documented in texts, pictures, and other symbols.
