Archduke Alexander Leopold of Austria

Archduke Alexander Leopold of Austria (born Alexander Leopold Johann Joseph August 14, 1772 in Florence, Italy; died Laxenburg, Austria July 12, 1795) was the fourth son of Leopold II, Holy Roman Emperor and his wife Maria Louisa of Spain. After the accession of his father to the Imperial throne in 1790, Alexander Leopold was appointed Palatine (Regent) of Hungary. After he was accidentally burned to death in 1795 (while preparing a firework display at Laxenburg Palace in honour of his sister-in-law Empress Maria Theresa), his brother Joseph took his place as Hungarian Palatine.
