Maria Theresa (German: Maria Theresia, see also other   languages; May 13, 1717 – November 29, 1780) was a reigning Archduchess   of Austria, a Queen of Hungary and Bohemia, and a Holy Roman Empress.

Maria Theresa was the oldest daughter of Elisabeth   Christine of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel and Emperor Charles VI, who   promulgated the Pragmatic Sanction to allow her to succeed to the   Habsburg monarchy. Opposition to her acceding to the throne led to the   War of the Austrian Succession in 1740. After Emperor Charles VII, who   claimed the throne, died in 1745, Maria Theresa obtained the imperial   crown for her husband, Francis I. Though she was technically empress   consort, Maria Theresa was the de facto ruler of the nation, and she   began styling herself Holy Roman Empress in 1745. Maria Theresa had in   fact already begun her rule in 1740 during the Austrian War of   Succession.

Maria Theresa helped initiate financial and   educational reforms, promoted commerce and the development of   agriculture, and reorganized the army, all of which strengthened   Austria's resources. Continued conflict with the Kingdom of Prussia led   to the Seven Years' War and later to the War of the Bavarian Succession.   She became dowager empress after the death of Francis and ascession of   her son Joseph as emperor in 1765. Maria Theresa criticized many of   Joseph's actions but agreed to the First Partition of Poland (1772). A   key figure in the power politics of 18th century Europe, Maria Theresa   brought unity to the Habsburg Monarchy and was considered one of its   most capable rulers. Her 16 children also included Marie Antoinette,   queen consort of France, and Leopold II, Holy Roman Emperor.
