Austrian Emperor Francis Joseph: Authentic Photo
Authentic photo from ca. 1914 with a portrait of the Emperor of Austrian Hungarian Empire Franz Josef in uniform.
Fine condition. Size: 3.5 in. x 5.5 in.
Franz Josef was crowned Emperor of Austria in 1848 at age 18. By the summer of 1914 he would be in the 66th year of his reign. He was also crowned King of Hungary in 1867 in an attempt to calm the situation with the problematic Magyars (Hungarians). This worked and the Dual Monarchy would last until his death in 1916.
His son, Crown Prince Rudolph, committed suicide in 1889 followed by his wife's assassination by an anarchist in Geneva (1897). He had numerous difficulties with his nephew and heir, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, who would be assassinated by Serbian nationalists on 28-Jun-1914 at a place called Sarajevo.
