      1. Franz Joseph died in 1916.

      2. I assume this was a hesped for someone known in German as Franz, or as Francis II (12 February 1768 – 2 March 1835). He died on 1 Adar 1835, and the Chasam Sofer gave his eulogy on Taanis Esther of that year

      He was the last Roman Emperor, ruling from 1792 until 6 August 1806, when he dissolved the Holy Roman Empire after the decisive defeat at the hands of the First French Empire led by Napoleon at the Battle of Austerlitz.

      In 1804, he had founded the Austrian Empire and became Francis I, the first Emperor of Austria, ruling from 1804 to 1835, when he died. Later he was named the first Doppelkaiser (double emperor) in history. He was also Apostolic King of Hungary, Croatia and Bohemia as Francis I. He also served as the first president of the German Confederation following its establishment in 1815.

      Francis II's grandchildren include Napoleon II (Napoleon's only legitimate son), Franz Joseph I of Austria, Maximillian I of Mexico, Maria II of Portugal and Pedro II of Brazil.
