Historical background


GERMANY - CITY OF FRANKFURT-AM-MAIN - FREDERICK III

(1440-19/08/1493)

Frederick was born in Innsbruck October 21, 1415. From 1424, he was Duke of Styria and Carinthia in the name of Frederick V. In 1440, he was elected king and the estate of his brother, the Emperor Albert II, but not replaced until 1451. This was the last emperor to be crowned in Rome (1452). In 1457, his nephew Ladislaus died and he inherited the Upper and Lower Austria, but he lost Vienna and Lower Austria before the troops of Matthias Corvinus, King of Hungary. He married his son Maximilian to Mary of Burgundy, daughter of Charles the Bold and died August 19, 1493 Linz.
