Engraving Sheet 300 x 190mm (11¾ x 7½"). Trimmed into image.
Portrait of the Holy Roman Emperor Friedrich III (1415-93), mis-identified at Friedrich IV, probably because he was King Friedrich IV of Germany also. He was the first emperor of the House of Habsburg, the penultimate emperor to be crowned by the Pope and the last to be crowned in Rome. At 53 years his reign was the longest of any German monarch. He was known either as 'the Peaceful' or the 'Arch-Sleepyhead of the Holy Roman Empire'. Vignettes lower left and right claim the invention of both Typography and gunpowder during his reign. On verso is an ink insciption 'P. Mariette 1669', marking this print as coming from the collection of Pierre Mariette II, described by the BM as 'the greatest publisher of the century'. The collection passed to his grandson, Pierre-Jean Mariette (1694-1774), a renowned connoisseur and dealer in old master prints.

Ludwig Andreas von Khevenhüller, (1683-1744), Austrian field-marshal who came of a noble family that was originally from Franconia and had settled in Carinthia. He first saw active service under Prince Eugene of Savoy in the War of the Spanish Succession and by 1716 had been given command of Prince Eugene's own regiment of dragoons. He distinguished himself at the battles of Peterwardein (5 August 1716) and Belgrade (1717), and became in 1723 Major-General of Cavalry (General-Feldwachtmeister), in 1726 proprietary colonel of a regiment and in 1733 Lieutenant-General (Feldmarschalleutnant). After the Battle of Guastalla (19 September 1734), his skilful generalship won for him the grade of General of Cavalry. He continued in military and diplomatic employment in Italy to the close of the war. In 1737 Khevenhüller was made Field Marshal, Prince Eugene recommending him to his sovereign as the best general in the service. Khevenhüller surpassed himself in the War of the Austrian Succession. As commander-in-chief of the army on the Danube he not only drove out the French and Bavarian invaders of Austria in a few days of rapid marching and sharp engagements (January 1742), but overran southern Bavaria, captured Munich, and forced a large French corps in Linz to surrender. On his return to Vienna, Maria Theresa decorated the field marshal with the Order of the Golden Fleece. He died suddenly at Vienna on 26 January 1744.

Schloß Klessheim, a baroque palace near Salzburg designed by Austrian architect Johann Bernard Fischer von Erlach in 1700 for Prince-Archbishop Johann Ernest von Thun.

The palace became summer residence for the Archbishops of Salzburg, but was not completed until 1732 (after this print was made), by which time the original design had been scaled down. The twin structures in the foreground of this print appear never to have been built. Since 1993 the palace has been the Salzburg Casino.
