Request for Identification of k.u.k. Generals and Admirals

Post by Kriegsmarine Großadmiral » 17 Oct 2020 23:40

I was quite surprised when I saw this section doesn't have the popular "Request for Identification of Generals and Admirals" thread.

I guess "The official AHF Austria-Hungary quiz thread" replaced it here. Nevertheless, I decided to create this thread in hopes we can have a successful thread for identification of k.u.k. Generals and Admirals. I hope the moderators will make this a "sticky" thread. :)

Let me kick off this new thread with a question right away.

On this photo we can see Kaiser Karl I. and Admiral Maximilian Njegovan on board the "Novara". My question is: who is the officer with the white beard in the background? Is it possible it's Admiralstabsarzt Anton Freiherr von Eiselsberg? I can see a resemblance.

No, it´s not Eiselsberg. The man in question is wearing an EK1 which Eiselsberg did not own.

I might be wrong, but I can only see two gold stripes on his cap, making him a Korvettenkapitän, Fregattenkapitän or a Linienschiffskapitän, but not an Admiral.
