Hello again , I completed the caption . TREB is TREBIC a Moravian city in today Czech Republic . and the photograph is Frantisek Knaus .who was a pioneer of the photo art and lived between 1822 and 1872 . So the portrait is of before 1872 , and is a German General the portrayed but how and when ? perhaps during the Austro Prussian  War of the year 1866 . if so ,the Prussian General must had be part of the Army that defeated Austria at Sadowa.
