Suporters and Religion
The Austrian monarchy was unable to create a highly centralized, absolutist state because the emperor of the Austrian Empire was also the king of Bohemia and Hungary. Since he was unable to focus on his Austrian Empire, he left different noble-like figures in charge of certain national regions. Because of this division, the regions of the empire had nothing in common except for their loyalty to the Habsburg dynasty.
2. What form of government did Maria Theresa support?
Since Maria Theresa was a leader during the age of absolutism, she was an absolutist leader. She, like all other absolutist leaders during this time in Europe, believed that god had meant for her and only her to be the ruler of Austrian Habsburg.
