Mähren was an Austrian Kröneland located east of Böhmen (Bohemia).

of Böhmen (Bohemia) together with Österreichisch-Schleisen
The Austrian Habsburgs, accustomed to being imperial, assumed the title

established, with the Habsburgs as Emperors of Austria and Kings of
Hungary, the combined realm being known as "Austria-Hungary".
