    1. Which Holy Roman Emperor transferred his capital from Vienna to Graz?
    (Bonus: What was his motto?)


    This is guessed-Ferdinand I. ?

    2. Which province was the last to became Austrian?

    Modern-day province or historical? I'd guess Bosnia if it was historical (1878/1908)

    3. Today’s Austria covers parts of which former roman provinces?

    Noricum and Pannonia Superior

    4. Which dynasty ruled Austria before the Habsburgs?

    Luxemburg?

    5. What main territory did Austria lose in the 7 years war?

    Silesia (in modern-day Poland)

    6. Who is the tyrolean national hero and why is he a hero to them?

    DJ Ötzi, because he makes bad music? (j/k, I've no idea)

    7. What date is the Austrian national holiday and why?

    26th of October, when the law of neutrality was passed (correct term?)

    8. What were the only Austrian colonies outside of Europe?

    If I'm not mistaken, that was somewhere in Venezuela, but there's no further description of it in that book...

    9. What abbreviation has been used by the (small :( ) Austrian resistance against Hitler?
    (Bonus: What does it stand for?)


    No idea...

    10. Which Austrian duke played an important role in the crusades? What did he do?

    No idea either :(

    Given the fact I consider myself a novice on Austrian history, I hope these results are satisfying...

    Answers to the remaining questions:

    1. Friedrich III, after Mathias Corvinus sat in Vienna... His motto was AEIOU, interpreted in various mythologems: "Alles Erdreich ist Oesterreich untertan" or "Austria erit in orbe ultima"

    4. The Babenbergs

    8. The Nicobars. This was in the few years of the existance of the Austrian East India Company in the mid 1700s. More an amusing anecdote...

    9. 05, generally interpreted as "O" and "E" (5th letter in the Alphabet), the first two letters of "Österreich"

    10. Leopold V. He had a quarrel with Richard Lionheart and he was the one who catched him on his way home, imprisoning Richard at Dürnstein before Leopold had to hand Richard over to Heinrich VI. With the money he built a larger wall for Vienna and founded "Wiener Neustadt" (Vienna New-City) and many other things...

    "Grüne ******* euch...". Sorry, just joking ;)

    All correct except for 3, which is only partially answered and 8 which is "overanswered". Mexico was no colony, they just had a Habsburg emperor, like many other countries in different times.

    Sorry, aska, I don't know of any Scenario where you could play Austrians, but I don't know many scenarios anyway.

    But if you want to put Austria into the standard civ2 game follow those steps:

    1. Open the attached file, copy the text and paste it in the "city.txt" of your civ2 folder.

    2. Open the "Rules.txt" in your civ2 folder and search for "@leaders". Replace the original section with this text:
