 Ferdinand III, Grand Duke of Tuscany - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ferdinand succeeded his father as Grand Duke of Tuscany in 1790, and ruled in Tuscany until 1801, when he was forced by Bonaparte to give up Tuscany to the Bourbons of Parma, who turned it into the Kingdom of Etruria.
Ferdinand was compensated by being given the secularized lands of the Archbishopric of Salzburg and several other ecclesiastical princes in Germany, and was made a Prince-elector of the Holy Roman Emperor.
By the Treaty of Pressburg of 1805, Ferdinand was made to give up Salzburg, which was annexed by his brother, the Emperor of Austria, and instead became Duke of Würzburg, a new state created for him from the old Bishopric of Würzburg.

 Leopold_II,_Grand_Duke_of_Tuscany   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Leopold II was the son of the grand-duke Ferdinand III of Tuscany, whom he succeeded in 1824.
The revolution in Milan and Vienna aroused a fever of patriotic enthusiasm in Tuscany, where war against Austria was demanded; Leopold, giving way to popular pressure, sent a force of regulars and volunteers to co-operate with Piedmont in the Lombard campaign.
Leopold of Tuscany was a well-meaning, not unkindly man, and fonder of his subjects than were the other Italian despots, but he was weak, and too closely bound by family ties and Habsburg traditions ever to become a real Liberal.
