Footnote: Johann Josef (Joseph) Wenzel (Anton Franz Karl) Graf Radetzky von Radetz was born on November 2, 1766 in Trebnice, Bohemia. He was a Czech nobleman and Austrian general, and fought with distinction against the French in the Napoleonic Wars. As Army Chief of Staff, he attempted to modernize the Austrian Army. As Commander-on-Chief of the Austrian Army in Northern Italy (1831-1857), he suppressed the revolt in the Austrian-ruled provinces of Lombardy and Venetia in 1848, and is known for the victories at the Battles of Custoza (July 24-25, 1848) and Novara (March 23, 1849) during the First Italian War of Independence. He served as Governor-General of these provinces (1849-1857). His status among conservatives as a national hero inspired Johann Strauss the Elder to compose the "Radetzky March". General Radetzky was in the military for over seventy years to the age of 90, almost up to his death at age 91. He died on January 5, 1858, in Milan, Italy.
