Ludwig Taaffe is Notable.

Ludwig Count Taafe was born on December 25, 1791, and died in December 21, 1855.

After attending gymnasium in Vienna, he studied law at the University of Vienna, passing his examination in 1811 and earning his doctorate in 1813.

He entered the civil service, rising rapidly to an Appellationsrat in Venice in 1814 and in Milan in 1814, President of the Milan Mercantile and Exchange Court in 1818 and then as Vice President of the Graz Province in 1819. He was President of the Province of Galicia in 1820, Governor of Carinthia and Styria in 1821, and Governor of Galicia in 1822.

Promoted to 2nd President of the General Court Chamber in 1825, he was moved to the less political position of 2nd President of the Supreme Judicial Chamber in 1826, becoming President in 1834.

Though he served as Minister of Justice under Franz Anton Count on Kolowrat-Liebsteinsky briefly in 1848, his career effectively ended later that year. Though named President of the Supreme Judicial Court, an office that he held until the end of his life, he was largely excluded from its activities.

He acted as Rector of the University of Vienna from 1836 to 1837.

He authored a number of scholarly works.

He was named a Chamberlain in 1813, and Privy Councilor in 1820.

Taafe-55 and Taaffe-65 appear to represent the same person because: This is the same person. I didn't catch that you had added him under a Czech name.
