Austrian Monarch. Successful in his long life as Austrian Emperor, although more devoted to the sciences and arts than to warfare. His devotion to organising dynastic marriages of his relatives to other royal families was shrewd, His magnificent monument was commissioned by him in 1463 but was not completed until well after his death. It bears his motto 'AEIOU' - there is still dispute as to exactly what these letters stand for.
