Description

'Bronze statue of Archduke Joseph, Palatine of Hungary (JAzsef nA!dor), in the homonymous square located in the heart of Budapest.Joseph was one of fifteen children born to Leopold II, Holy Roman Emperor and Maria Louisa of Spain. He was born in Florence, where his father was ruling as Grand Duke of Tuscany.His father was a son of Francis I, Holy Roman Emperor and Maria Theresa of Austria. Joseph was a brother of Francis II, Holy Roman Emperor, Ferdinand III, Grand Duke of Tuscany, and Maria Clementina, Duchess of Calabria.His mother was a daughter of Charles III of Spain. Through his mother, Joseph was a nephew among others of Charles IV of Spain, Ferdinand I of the Two Sicilies, and Infante Gabriel of Spain. He was also a cousin of Ferdinand VII of Spain, Queen Charlotte of Portugal, and Queen Maria Isabella of the Two Sicilies.In 1796, he was made Palatine of Hungary (nA!dor in Hungarian). This old dignity was in effect a deputy of the king when he could not attend to the country. Rather characteristic of a Habsburg, he showed genuine care for the country and throughout his years in office supported and promoted economic reforms, public works and constructions that aimed to bring Hungary closer to Europe. He was, just like a true Habsburg, wary of corrupt politicians seeking reforms, although he did not govern with a heavy hand; harsh measures were usually imposed from Vienna. His years saw the first steamboat and railroad in Hungary, the regulation of the Danube and the founding of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.He was very popular among the Magyars and became the founder of the Hungarian branch of the Habsburg family. His statue now stands in a place of honour at the very heart of Budapest in a square named for him, in front of the Ministry of Finance, facing the part of the city that grew up and burgeoned during his tenure.'
