About Anton Franz de Paula Joseph Johann Nepomuk Andres von und zu Liechtenstein, I

Franz josef I. von Liechtenstein

802nd Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece Austria

(car) -------------------

He was a nephew of Joseph Wenzel I, whom he succeeded on 10 February 1772. Franz Joseph had been recognised heir to Liechtenstein since 1723, when his uncle's only son had died. Joseph Wenzel took Franz Joseph under his wing and Franz Joseph accompanied him in a campaign in Northern Italy, fighting with Wenzel at the Battle of Piacenza. The battle was a victory for the Holy Roman Empire, of which Liechtenstein was a part. He was the 802nd Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece in Austria. In 1763, Franz Josef traveled on behalf of the Emperor to Spain, in order to bring the bride of Archduke Leopold a picture of the Archduke. In 1767, he became Privy Councillor, and in 1771, he received the Order of the Golden Fleece. Once Franz Joseph became Prince of Liechtenstein, he showed great interest in its economic problems and the ever-increasing Liechtenstein art collection.
