The Eternal Emperor: Francis Joseph I. and the Legacy of the Habsburg Monarchy Today

When: February 24, 2016, 4:00pm
Where: International Center Lounge (IC 123)

Emperor Francis Joseph of Austria was born in 1830 and ruled his monarchy for sixty-eight years (1848 - 1916). His timeless face had been omnipresent in images in even the most remote corners of the Habsburg Empire.

Based on holdings of Francis Joseph’s private library, this lecture will explore how the image of the eternal emperor Francis Joseph had been created during his lifetime. This powerful image has continued to proliferate after World War I in popular narratives as well as in scholarly writings.
Hans Petschar, Ph.D., studied History and German Literature at the University of Salzburg. He has published in the fields of Visual History, Public History, Library History and Contemporary Austrian History and lectured at the Universities of Salzburg and Vienna. Since 2002 he is director of the Picture Archives and Graphics Department at the Austrian National Library.
