Our juvenile Emperor in 1834: Beautiful postcard depicting Habsburg Franz Josef. Emperor Franz Joseph was born in 1830. At the age of eighteen he became Hapsburg Emperor and in 1867, ruler of Austria-Hungary. Over the next few years his army subdued revolts in Hungary and Lombardy. Franz Josef suffered several personal tragedies. His brother Maximilian was shot by revolutionaries in Mexico and his only son, Rudolf, committed suicide in 1889. Nine years later, his wife, Elizabeth of Bavaria, was assassinated by an anarchist in Geneva.
