Archduke Anton of Austria

Anton Victor (31 August 1779 – 2 April 1835) was an Archduke of Austria and a Grand Master of the Teutonic Knights.

Anton Victor was the son of Leopold II, Holy Roman Emperor, and Maria Luisa of Spain. He was born in Florence and died in Vienna. He never married and died without issue.

After the death of Maximilian Franz of Austria, the Archbishop of Cologne and Prince-Bishop of Münster, Anton Victor was elected on September 9, 1801 as Prince-Bishop of Münster and on October 7 as Archbishop and Prince-elector of Cologne. Because the French had already occupied both cities, Anton Victor never assumed his powers. Therefore not Anton Victor but his predecessors are regarded as the last Archbishop of Cologne and Prince-Bishop of Münster.
