The “Emperors” we are now talking about are of course the German Emperor [that was his title, he was not Emperor of Germany, but his title was German Emperor], and the Emperor and King of Hungary. [That is why you have k + k, the first one stands for “kaiserlich”, and the second one for “königlich”.] The focus is on the Emperor of Austria and the King of Hungary. A point to be developed later, because it plays a role in Stolper’s argument.
