Yet there was a point beyond which the Monarchy seemed unable or even unwilling to go in modernising its diverse realms. Despite cameralist reforms there was little large-scale industry, agriculture remained primitive and the revenue base problematic. The Habsburgs themselves accepted the decentralised structure of the Monarchy. Charles VI is famous for spending much of his reign negotiating the Pragmatic Sanction, a recognition of his daughter’s right to succeed him, with each of the diets, in tacit recognition of their separate status.

For the next two and a half centuries the eastern Slavs lived under Mongol domination, a period which saw the emergence of Russian, White Russian and Ukrainian as separate languages. In the fifteenth century the Principality of Muscovy, centred on Moscow, struggled free of the Mongol yoke and by 1584 had expanded north to the Arctic Ocean, east into Siberia and south-east as far as the Caspian Sea. In the seventeenth century, the tsars of the Romanov dynasty began to make inroads into the territory of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth to the west; this included most of what is today Belarus and the area of the Ukraine east of the Dnieper.
