Both variants are used in English, but Hapsburg (a horrible spell in my opinion) is an archaic variant, Habsburg being more currently used today. Originally
in German Habsburg name was Habichsburg (Hawk's Castle). It's true that in different languages some names are spelled (and
pronounced) differently - in French it's Habsbourg (pronounced 'absburg), but when in English you have two variants, Habsburg is any day preferable
to the horrible Hapsburg.

The Hapsburg royal family ruled (at their height) Spain, Austria and parts of the Holy Roman Empire, during the 15-16th Century they were in competition with
the French Valois family over territories in Italy.
I know that the Hapsburgs remained in control of Austria well into the 19th Century, loosing their grip on the territories in the rest of the German
provinces (eventually becoming dominated by Prussia after the Napoleonic Wars). I don't know much about their history in Spain after the Spanish Armada
failed, only that the King of Spain died some years later leaving a single female heir?

In German, "Hab" is pronounced like "Hap", so while it's not the correct spelling, the
variance is understandable.

Yeah, and they marry all over Europe to achieve their evil plan to spread the "Habsburg lip" to all royal families.

Don't forget leather hosen, folk songs, and obnoxious tourists.
