The first Ferdinand I was Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, which was finally put out of its misery by Napoleon in 1806. By that time it had for a long time. to quote Voltaire, been neither "holy nor Roman nor an empire". It was succeeded by the Austrian Empire, still a sprawling territory over much of central and east Europe but with no claims of authority over the German states. The last Holy Roman Emperor Franz II became the first Emperor of Austria as Franz I. His son was your second Ferdinand I.
@talerman For me their number is confusing; it would be better if either a second name or something to differentiate which one is meant is included for people (like me) who are not familiar with them
@panzerman ! Congrats
Thank you for your info about Ferd. I who really is Ferd. V - the Ferdinand matter is getting hard to understand they could have been more creative in the naming of their sons LOL
haha!...yeah..its taken me years...
Although the Ferdinand you call Ferdinand IV, the eldest son of Emperor Ferdinand III, was elected King of the Romans, the traditional title of the next Emperor, in 1653, he died in 1654 before his father and was never Emperor. As far as I know there are no coins in his name, although there may well be medals, perhaps some in gold struck specially for you.
Separate names with a comma.
