What is Austria?


Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.

Austria was one of the Great Powers of Europe, dating back to the days of the Habsburg Dynasty; the House of Habsburg, and its Habsburg-Lorraine main line, ruled Austria until the end of World War I. Following the war, the First Republic was created; the Anschluss saw Austria annexed by Nazi Germany. After World War II, Austria was occupied by the Allies and the Austrian State Treaty re-established Austria as a sovereign state in 1955. The Second Austrian Republic announced a declaration of neutrality in that year. Austria, per its current constitution, is permanently neutral.

    NBC did not air Final Jeopardy in our area on Jan. 13. Instead, NBC replayed the last 5 minutes of the Nightly News with Lester Holt. Then, at 7:30pm, NBC aired an episode of Jeopardy with 3 new contestants (instead of airing Wheel of Fortune which is normally in that time slot). Our area never saw the end of the Jan. 13 Jeopardy episode.
