Friedrich, Prince of Schwarzenberg

Friedrich, Prince of Schwarzenberg (Czech: kníže Bedřich Schwarzenberg, 1800-1870), had an adventurous career as a soldier, and described his wanderings and campaigns in several interesting works, of which the best known is his "Wanderungen eines Lanzknechtes" (1844-1845). He took part as an Austrian officer in the campaigns of Galicia 1846, Italy 1848 and Hungary 1848, and as an amateur in the French conquest of Algeria, the Carlist Wars in Spain and the Swiss civil war of the Sonderbund. He became a major-general in the Austrian army in 1849, and died after many years of well-filled leisure in 1870.
