Prince Franz Josef I   1772 - 1781

 

After the death of Prince Joseph Wenzel, the regency was passed over to his nephew, Franz Josef (born 1726, died 1781).

As Joseph Wenzel's only son had already died in 1723, he was known to be heir to the throne.

Already in his youth, Franz Josef accompanied his uncle in wars and on various diplomatic journeys.

Later on, not only that he showed great interest in administering his estates, but he was also intensively preoccupied with the art collection.
