Please help to identify as many persons as possible on these photos that I got recently.

No.1 Official visit of Austrian-Hungarian Emperor Karl to the South-Western front. Any ideas who is the general accompanying Emperor? His awards are: Oesterreichischen Ordens der Eisernen Krone, Militaer-Maria Theresien-Orden, Militaerverdienstkreuz and Prussian EK-II.

No.2 No idea who is here :banger: Please help to identify any of these persons!

I assume here we have a visit of Ludwig von Bayern to Austria. At least he wears Orden vom Goldenen Vlies (neck award), Golden Jubilaeumshofmedaille, Militaer-Maria Theresien-Orden (breast star), Militaerverdienstkreuz (breast star) and ungarischen St. Stephan-Orden. These awards are visible on the next photo with the same person.

Fragment with an unknown and high decorated Feldmarschalleutnant. Among the awards - Orden vom Goldenen Vlies (neck award), Oesterreichischen Ordens der Eisernen Krone (breast star), etc. etc. According to the awards he is wearing he should be a kind a relative to the Austrian Emperor  :rolleyes:

Is the civil servant wearing a Bavarian Crown star on his left?  Great image of Starry Cross, lady face obscured by King  Ludvig III.
