The Duchy of AustriaThe Duchy of Austria, A.D. 1080 Summer

In Carolingian times and during the early Middle Ages, the core of territory that would become the Archduchy of Austria was known as marchia orientalis or "eastern march". Ethnic German migrants displaced earlier Slavic populations in the 9th and 10th centuries and, after the Battle of Lechfeld in 955, the area became one of the marches of the Holy Roman Empire and was given a margrave around 960. From 976, the territory was ruled by the Babenberg dynasty and it came to be known as Ostarr蝪鞋hi ("Eastern Realm"), the linguistic ancestor of the German name for Austria, ?sterreich. With the Lay Investiture Controversy reaching its height, Austria has been dragged into it by taking the side of the Pope. Through actions of defiance against the Emperor Austria may assert full independence and eventually dominate the Empire. Sadly, this is very far away. A new dynasty may accomplish this but they will have to use Austria's military and economic might to its fullest potential.
