With a POD of January 1st, 1900, what would you do to best reform A-H into a stable functioning country/empire? I'm sure everyone here is aware of how much of a cluster fuck Austria-Hungary is. The total dysfunction of that country leads to WW1 which leads to WW2, which resulted in over 100 million deaths. But if we could go back in time to try to stabilize the country what would be the best approach? Would the triple monarchy work? As most know Franz Ferdinand wanted to make this happen but Hungary would of bitterly opposed this. There is also the well known United States of Greater Austria. But once again, the Hungarians would strongly be against this, even more so than the Triple Monarchy. If Franz Ferdinand was never assassinated, would he be able to peacefully reform the empire? Or was Austria-Hungary just doomed to fail. Finally, is there any hope for a realistic scenario where Austria-Hungary partitions itself without mass bloodshed?
