Help - ID Austrian Officer

Post by Orok » 07 May 2004 04:49

Glenn, Chris, and All,

I have this scan of an Austrian officer, I would appreciate it if any of you could identify him. I believe he is wearing the Austrian uniform of early 19th century and his neck decoration is the commander's cross of the Order of Leopold.

Any help would be nice! :D

Best Regards!

Hi Orok,

A representation of a young Archduke John (1782-1859), victor at Sacile in 1809?

Hi Chris,

A very good point! :D It sure looks a lot like Archduke John, but unfortunately I don't have a portrait of him in his youth, so can't do the comparison!

Do you happen to have such a picture?

Best Regards!

Hi Orok,

Unfortunately I haven't a picture of the young Archduke John. I've just based it on comparing the lithograph to later portraits of the older, and balder, man :D

Hi Chris and Orok,

Here is a portrait of EH Johann from around 1805.

Glenn,

Thank you for the nice portrait! :D

I still can't be 100% sure. But I really think there is a good chance it indeed is Erzherzog Johann.

Best Regards!
