Vienna Palace

Upon learning that Franz had traded the Lombard King's throne with the House of Wittelsbach, Empress Sophie breathed a sigh of relief; this outcome was acceptable to most of the family members.

The relationships among European nobility are complex and interconnected. If the Austrian Government had stubbornly tried to push a Serbian royal crown onto the House of Wittelsbach, Empress Sophie would have been too ashamed to face her family.

It must be remembered that when war broke out, Franz had made a promise to the Bavarian Royal Family, and Empress Sophie had been brought out as a guarantor.

Munich could be taken through negotiations partly because they truly couldn't win in battle, and partly because everyone's interests were secured, so naturally, no one was willing to fight Austria to the death.
