Archduke Joseph Karl of Austria

Archduke Joseph Karl of Austria (German: (Erzherzog) Joseph Karl (Ludwig) von Österreich, Hungarian: Habsburg–Toscanai József Károly (Lajos) főherceg, born Pressburg, 2 March 1833; died Fiume, 13 June 1905) was a member of the Habsburg dynasty. He was the second son of Archduke Joseph, Palatine of Hungary (7th son of Leopold II, Holy Roman Emperor) and Duchess Maria Dorothea of Württemberg.

Like many junior members of royal families, Archduke Joseph Karl entered the military. He became a Major General in the Austrian Army in 1860. He was also Palatine of Hungary after the death of his childless half-brother Stephen, though the post by that time was symbolic only.
