Recommended Posts

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.

Hard to affirm but looks as a Commander star of the civil merit of the crown order .

The Generaladjutant is Feldmarschalleutnant Zdenko Prinz von Lobkowitz, Herzog zu Raudnitz.

King Ludwig was the Inhaber of the k.u.k. 62 Infanterie Regiment. He wears the colonel uniform of the regiment.

This is indeed the Bavarian King Ludwig III. Although I often confuse him with his father, Prince Liute Pod.

This obese old man, I think he is like Grand Duke Friedrich, but obviously not. His appearance rate is quite high. In my eyes, Europeans look the same.
