explain?
Which town are you talking about? Austria-Hungary existed until the end of
the First World War. Following that there were separate countries of Austria
and Hungary.
Yes, although Hungary was a well-defined part of the Austro-Hungarian
Empire. There was some territory (the Burgenland) that was part of
Hungary before the war and became part of Austria after the war.
However, it may be reading too much into this to suggest that as
the explanation.
