  Archduke - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The title of Archduke (German: Erzherzog) was invented in the Privilegium Maius, a 14th century forgery initiated by Duke Rudolf IV of Austria.
Originally, it was meant to denote the ruler of the Archduchy of Austria, in an effort to put that ruler on par with the electorships, as Austria had been passed over in the Golden Bull of 1356, where the electorships had been assigned.
From the 16th century onward, archduke or its female form, archduchess, came to be used by all the members of the House of Habsburg, similar to the title Prince in many other royal houses.

The trifling force of two thousand men under Rivas--all that the archduke then had in that province--and the sconces and earthworks which had been constructed around Ostend to impede the movements and obstruct the supplies of the garrison, would be utterly powerless to prevent the consummation of the plan.

 John Baptist Joseph Fabian Sebastian von Habsburg   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Archduke John considered this defeat "the fatal day for the young Austrian Empire" (proclaimed only in 1804), because it meant the failure of the main attempt to rally European and especially German resistance to Napoleon under Austrian leadership.
As the dramas of 1848 continued, Archduke John was gradually pushed to the sidelines by political actors with more powerful means at their disposal.
Thus, Archduke John as the emperor's representative became more or less politically irrelevant even before Ferdinand abdicated in favor of Francis Joseph in December 1848, despite a variety of well-intentioned attempts he made to mediate between the Habsburgs and the Viennese, the Italians, and the Hungarians.
