    Franz Joseph was born in the Schönbrunn Palace in Vi­enna, the el­dest son of Arch­duke Franz Karl (the younger son of Holy Roman Em­peror Fran­cis II), and his wife Princess So­phie of Bavaria. Be­cause his uncle, from 1835 the Em­peror Fer­di­nand, was weak-minded, and his fa­ther un­am­bi­tious and re­tir­ing, the young Arch­duke "Franzl" was brought up by his mother as a fu­ture Em­peror with em­pha­sis on de­vo­tion, re­spon­si­bil­ity and dili­gence. Franzl came to idolise his grand­fa­ther, der Gute Kaiser Franz, who had died shortly be­fore the for­mer's fifth birth­day, as the ideal monarch. At the age of thir­teen, Franzl started a ca­reer as a colonel in the Aus­trian army. From that point on­ward, his fash­ion was dic­tated by army style and for the rest of his life he nor­mally wore the uni­form of a mil­i­tary officer. Franz Joseph was soon joined by three younger broth­ers: Arch­duke Fer­di­nand Max­i­m­il­ian (born 1832, the fu­ture Em­peror Max­i­m­il­ian of Mex­ico...

    Under the guid­ance of the new prime min­is­ter Prince Schwarzen­berg, the new em­peror at first pur­sued a cau­tious course, grant­ing a con­sti­tu­tion in early 1849. At the same time, a mil­i­tary cam­paign was nec­es­sary against the Hun­gar­i­ans, who had re­belled against Hab­s­burg cen­tral au­thor­ity in the name of their an­cient lib­er­ties. Franz Joseph was also al­most im­me­di­ately faced with a re­newal of the fight­ing in Italy, with King Charles Al­bert of Sar­dinia tak­ing ad­van­tage of set­backs in Hun­gary to re­sume the war in March 1849. How­ever, the mil­i­tary tide began to swiftly turn in favor of Franz Joseph and the Aus­trian white­coats. Al­most im­me­di­ately, Charles Al­bert was de­ci­sively beaten by Radet­zky at No­vara and forced to sue for peace, as well as to re­nounce his throne. In Hun­gary, the sit­u­a­tion was more se­vere and Aus­trian de­feat seemed im­mi­nent. Sens­ing a need to se­cure his right to rule, Franz Joseph sought help from Rus­si...

    The German question

    The main for­eign pol­icy goal of Franz Joseph had been the uni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many under the House of Hab­s­burg. This was jus­ti­fied on grounds of prece­dence; from 1452 to the end of the Holy Roman Em­pire in 1806, with only one pe­riod of in­ter­rup­tion under the Wit­tels­bachs, the Hab­s­burgs had gen­er­ally held the Ger­man crown. How­ever, Franz Joseph's de­sire to re­tain the non-Ger­man ter­ri­to­ries of the Hab­s­burg Aus­trian Em­pire in the event of Ger­man uni­fi­ca­tion pr...

    The Three Emperors League

    In 1873, two years after the uni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, Franz Joseph en­tered into the League of Three Em­per­ors (Dreikaiser­bund) with Kaiser Wil­helm I of Ger­many and Tsar Alexan­der II of Rus­sia, who was suc­ceeded by Tsar Alexan­der III in 1881. The league had been de­signed by the Ger­man chan­cel­lor Otto von Bis­marck, as an at­tempt to main­tain the peace of Eu­rope. It would last in­ter­mit­tently until 1887.

    The Vatican

    In 1903, Franz Joseph's veto of Car­di­nal Mar­i­ano Ram­polla's elec­tion to the pa­pacy was trans­mit­ted to the Papal con­clave by Car­di­nal Jan Puzyna de Kosiel­sko. It was the last use of such a veto, be­cause the new Pope Pius Xpro­hib­ited fu­ture uses and pro­vided for ex­com­mu­ni­ca­tion for any attempt.

    On 28 June 1914 Franz Joseph's nephew and heir Arch­duke Franz Fer­di­nand, and his mor­ga­natic wife So­phie, Duchess of Ho­hen­berg, were as­sas­si­nated by Gavrilo Prin­cip, a Yu­goslav na­tion­al­ist of Ser­bian ethnicity,dur­ing a visit to Sara­jevo. When he heard the news of the as­sas­si­na­tion, Franz Joseph said that "one has not to defy the Almighty. In this man­ner a su­pe­rior power has re­stored that order which I un­for­tu­nately was un­able to maintain." While the em­peror was shaken, and in­ter­rupted his hol­i­day to re­turn to Vi­enna, he soon re­sumed his va­ca­tion at his im­pe­r­ial villa at Bad Ischl. Ini­tial de­ci­sion-mak­ing dur­ing the "July Cri­sis" fell to Count Leopold Berch­told, the Aus­trian for­eign min­is­ter; Count Franz Con­rad von Hötzen­dorf, the chief of staff for the Aus­tro-Hun­gar­ian army and the other ministers. The ul­ti­mate res­o­lu­tion of de­lib­er­a­tions by the Aus­trian gov­ern­ment dur­ing the weeks fol­low­ing the as­sas­si­na­t...

    Franz Joseph died in the Schönbrunn Palace on the evening of 21 No­vem­ber 1916, at the age of eighty-six. His death was a re­sult of de­vel­op­ing pneu­mo­nia of the right lung sev­eral days after catch­ing a cold while walk­ing in Schönbrunn Park with the King of Bavaria. He was suc­ceeded by his grand­nephew Charles I, who reigned until the col­lapse of the Em­pire fol­low­ing its de­feat in 1918. He is buried in the Im­pe­r­ial Cryptin Vi­enna, where flow­ers are still left by monar­chists.

    It was gen­er­ally felt in the court that the Em­peror should marry and pro­duce heirs as soon as pos­si­ble. Var­i­ous po­ten­tial brides were con­sid­ered: Princess Elis­a­beth of Mod­ena, Princess Anna of Prus­sia and Princess Sido­nia of Sax­ony. Al­though in pub­lic life Franz Joseph was the un­ques­tioned di­rec­tor of af­fairs, in his pri­vate life his for­mi­da­ble mother still wielded cru­cial in­flu­ence. So­phie wanted to strengthen the re­la­tion­ship be­tween the Houses of Hab­s­burg and Wit­tels­bach—de­scend­ing from the lat­ter house her­self—and hoped to match Franz Joseph with her sis­ter Lu­dovika's el­dest daugh­ter, He­lene ("Néné"), who was four years the Em­peror's ju­nior. How­ever, Franz Joseph fell deeply in love with Néné's younger sis­ter Elis­a­beth ("Sisi"), a beau­ti­ful girl of fif­teen, and in­sisted on mar­ry­ing her in­stead. So­phie ac­qui­esced, de­spite her mis­giv­ings about Sisi's ap­pro­pri­ate­ness as an im­pe­r­ial con­sort, and the young c...

    Franz Ferdinand was the eldest son of Archduke Karl Ludwig of Austria, the younger brother of Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria. Following the death of Crown Prince Rudolf in 1889 and the death of Karl Ludwig in 1896, Franz Ferdinand became the heir presumptive to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His courtship of Sophie Chotek, a lady-in-waiting, caused conflict within the imperial household, and their morganatic marriage in 1900 was only allowed after he renounced his descendants' rights to the thr

    Franz Ferdinand was born in Graz, Austria, the eldest son of Archduke Karl Ludwig of Austria and of his second wife, Princess Maria Annunciata of Bourbon-Two Sicilies. In 1875, when he was eleven years old, his cousin Francis V, Duke of Modena died, naming Franz Ferdinand his heir on condition that he add the name "Este" to his own. Franz Ferdinand thus became one of the wealthiest men in Austria.

    In 1889, Franz Ferdinand's life changed dramatically. His cousin Crown Prince Rudolf committed suicide at his hunting lodge in Mayerling. This left Franz Ferdinand's father, Karl Ludwig, as first in line to the throne. Karl Ludwig died of typhoid fever in 1896. Henceforth, Franz Ferdinand was groomed to succeed to the throne.

    Despite this burden, he did manage to find time for travel and personal pursuits, such as his circumnavigation of the world between 1892 and 1893. After visiting India he spent time hunting kangaroos and emus in Australia in 1893, then travelled on to Nouméa, New Hebrides, Solomon Islands, New Guinea, Sarawak, Hong Kong and Japan. After sailing across the Pacific on the RMS Empress of China from Yokohama to Vancouver he crossed the United States and returned to Europe.

    Franz Ferdinand, like most males in the ruling Habsburg line, entered the Austro-Hungarian Army at a young age. He was frequently and rapidly promoted, given the rank of lieutenant at age fourteen, captain at twenty-two, colonel at twenty-seven, and major general at thirty-one. While never receiving formal staff training, he was considered eligible for command and at one point briefly led the primarily Hungarian 9th Hussar Regiment. In 1898 he was given a commission "at the special disposition o

    In 1894 Franz Ferdinand met Countess Sophie Chotek, a lady-in-waiting to Archduchess Isabella, wife of Archduke Friedrich, Duke of Teschen. Franz began to visit Archduke Friedrich's villa in Pressburg, and in turn Sophie wrote to Franz Ferdinand during his convalescence from tuberculosis on the island of Lošinj in the Adriatic. They kept their relationship a secret, until it was discovered by Isabella herself.
