Francis II (German: Franz II., Erwählter Römischer Kaiser) (12 February 1768 – 2 March 1835) was the last Holy Roman Emperor, ruling from 1792 until 6 August 1806, when he dissolved the Holy Roman Empire after the decisive defeat at the hands of the First French Empire led by Napoleon at the Battle of Austerlitz. In 1804, he had founded the Austrian Empire and became Francis I (Franz 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.[1] For the two years between 1804 and 1806, Francis used the title and style by the grace of God elected Roman Emperor, ever Augustus, hereditary Emperor of Austria and he was called the Emperor of both Germany and Austria.[citation needed] He was also Apostolic King of Hungary and Bohemia as Francis I. He also served as the first president of the German Confederation following its establishment in 1815.[1]

Just a note to say that Franz II's daughter Maria Leopoldina is now on Wikitree (Von_Habsburg-Lothringen-8) and ready to be connected to her father. Thanks!
I've attached her. Thank you. I'm not sure the LNAB is as we want it (due to the 'von'). Her siblings have different LNABs. This should be discussed in G2G and changes made to profiles to provide consistency. I've posted on G2G.

Habsburg-Lothringen-9 and Habsburg-Lorraine-9 appear to represent the same person because: Trying to map WikiTree profiles to Wikidata I found that this is duplicates. Please merge
