Karl Leichtenstern, b. 1847, Generalmajor

Recommended Posts

I am seeking information about

 

Karl Leichenstern, b. 29 May 1847, major general in the Bavarian army, 1899-1901 commander of 10th Königlich Bayerische Infanterie-Brigade.

 

I only know that his father was Ludwig Leichtenstein, d. 1866 at fortress Rosenberg, lieutenant colonel.

The Prussian Maschine doesn’t list him, perhaps he retired before 1914. I found an entry of him from 1906 where he was categorized “zur Disposition”.

 Kind Regards

Hermann

Thank you, Andy. I collect old photographs. I have a CAB of Leichtenstern and I want to post it on Wikipedia. So, I try to write a short biographical article about him. I hope Wikipedia will accept it. Leichtenstern must be a relevant person. I am not sure if he is.

One of his brothers was a well known physician.

Years ago download this photo from the internet.
It is not mine and I do not know the source.
I have it labeled as: LEICHTENSTERN - Generalmajor Karl Leichtenstern, Commander of the 10. Infanterie-Brigade
