From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Archduke Ludwig Viktor

Archduke Ludwig Viktor Joseph Anton of Austria (15 May 1842 – 18 January 1919), was the youngest son born to Archduke Franz Karl of Austria and Princess Sophie of Bavaria. His siblings included Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria, Emperor Maximilian of Mexico, Archduke Karl Ludwig and Maria Anna, who died at four years of age.

Despite his mother's attempts to arrange a marriage for him with Duchess Sophie Charlotte in Bavaria, he remained a bachelor all his life. As a result of his very public homosexuality and transvestitism, his brother, Emperor Franz Joseph, forbade him to stay in Vienna.[1] He was banished to Klessheim Palace near Salzburg where he died in 1919, at the age of 76.
