Example text

For the next century and a quarter, the three conservative empires of Eastern Europe would have a common interest in repressing any signs of a Polish revival, but they also acquired common boundaries with each other, a new source of friction. The final cause of conflict was the rise of Prussian power. This was founded on Prussia’s internal strengths in an economic and hence military sense; it was also driven by a conscious ambition to expand and round out the territory of the Prussian state. Expansion implied designs against the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth; it was also directed against the Habsburg Monarchy, and ultimately it assumed a greater role for Prussia within the Holy Roman Empire.

They uniformly saw some measure of land reform as desirable, in the interests of productivity and social stability if not natural justice. Their overall aim, it should be stressed, was not a liberal society but a strong state. 35 A History of Eastern Europe 1740–1918 Between the aspiration of enlightened absolutism and its implementation, however, there was a wide gap.

The Monarchy had an ‘ordinary’ income derived from its own landed property, from indirect taxes on consumption and from customs. Money for an army, and for waging war, counted as ‘extraordinary’ income and had to be voted by the diet of each Land as a ‘contribution’. In the reign of Charles VI both the Bohemian and Hungarian diets, whose taxable wealth was the most substantial, had agreed to fix the amount of their contributions, thereby guaranteeing the Monarchy something like a regular income.
