Statue of Emperor Franz (Francis) II/I in the Inner Castle Court (innerer Burghof) by the Italian sculptor Pompeo Marchesi.

Franz (Francis) II (12 February 1768 – 2 March 1835) was the last Holy Roman Emperor (Erwählter Römischer Kaiser),
ruling from 1792 until 6 August 1806, when he dissolved the Holy Roman Empire after the disastrous defeat of the Third Coalition by Napoleon at the Battle of Austerlitz. In 1804, he had founded the Austrian Empire and became Franz (Francis) I, the first Emperor of Austria (Kaiser von Österreich), ruling from 1804 to 1835, so later he was named the one and only "Doppelkaiser" (double emperor) in history.
