MARIA THERESA & JOSEPH II - AUSTRIA
Maria Theresia, (1717-1780), was the eldest daughter of the Holy Roman emperor Charles VI and Elizabeth of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel. She was an Austrian archduchess, and Holy Roman Empress of the Habsburg Dynasty from 1740 to 1780 and birthed Marie Antoinette and Joseph II. In 1740 she succeeded the Habsburg throne. In resistance, Frederick II’s army invaded and claimed Silesia. The war ended in 1748, after which she reformed her government and military. In 1756 Frederick II waged the Seven Years War against her. In 1765 she appointed her son her co-regent. Joseph II has been ranked, with Catherine the Great of Russia and Frederick the Great of Prussia, as one of the three great Enlightenment monarchs. His policies are now known as Josephinism. This coin circulated from 1764-1780.
