    Description

    Charles, Archduke of Austria 1796 Letter Signed (1771-1847) The brother of Holy Roman Emperor Francis II. Despite his epilepsy, he was the ablest Austrian commander in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars. In 1809, he defeated Napoleon at Aspern in May but was beaten at Wagram in July. In both battles he exacted a heavy toll from the French. Here is a one page letter, dated July 17, 1796, 7.5" x 9" in size and signed, "Charles F. M." Fine condition. (PSA/DNA lacks sufficient comparable examples to render an opinion on this item. While we believe it to be authentic as described, it is thus sold without certification.)
