Archduke of Austria / Teschen line (non-ruling member of the dynasty)
Born 3 August 1817 in Vienna
Died 18 February 1895 in Arco, Italy
One of the most conservative Habsburg personalities in the nineteenth century, Archduke Albrecht came to symbolize the upholding of the Absolutist values that were widely shared in the dynasty and diametrically opposed to the modernizing currents prevailing in society at the turn of the century. He had great influence within the family. He was given military responsibilities at a very young age in preparation for a long career in the Imperial Army.
