Franz II (I) - a Double - Emperor Emperor of Austria - Bust with short hair
  • As Franz II. last Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire
  • As Franz I. Founder of the Austrian Monarchy
  • 3rd type 1825-1831 as Franz I
Franz II, Holy Roman Emperor was the last Holy Roman Emperor, ruling from 1792 until 6 August 1806, when he dissolved the Empire after the disastrous defeat of the Third Coalition by Napoleon at the Battle of Austerlitz. In 1804 he founded the Austrian Empire and became, as Franz I., the first Emperor of Austria, ruling from 1804 to 1835, so later he was named the one and only Doppelkaiser (double emperor) in history. He continued his leading role as an opponent of Napoleonic France in the Napoleonic Wars, and suffered several more defeats after Austerlitz, the most severe of which led to his delivering his daughter, Marie Louise of Austria, as a bride in a reluctant marriage of state.
