Erzherzog u. Kronprinz Rudolf's Last k.u.k. Army Rank?

Post by Orok » 21 Mar 2004 15:54

Hi all,

Has Rudolf ever been conferred the rank of a full general or Feldmarschall before his suicide?

Also, has anyone got a photo/picture of him in German uniform? All the pictures I've ever seen of him showing him in Hungarian uniforms (up to the rank of Feldmarschall-Leutnant).

Thank you for any help!

Best Regards!

Hi Orok,

He died as a Feldmarschall-Lieutenant. When image posting comes back online I'll post his photo as a "German" general.

Regards
Glenn

Chris,

Nice photo, the father's Hungarian photo is conspicuously less than his German ones. Thanks for sharing! :D
