Count Franz Hötzendorf


Austrian officer and Chief of the General Staff of the armed forces of the Austro-Hungarian Army and Navy during the 1914 July Crisis that led to the outbreak of World War I.

After the war, Conrad denied any personal guilt for the outbreak and the results of the war and blamed the Imperial court and politicians for it. Embittered and sickened, he died on 25 August 1925, while taking a cure in Bad Mergentheim, Germany.

Sy Scholfield quotes Lawrence Sondhaus's book, "Franz Conrad Von Hotzendorf: Architect of the Apocalypse" (Brill, 2000), p. 11: "Hotzendorf was born on the morning of 11 November 1852 in Penzing, ... Vienna ... "'Ein mir im Jahre 1909 oder 1910 gestellter Horoskop," KA, B/1450: 379, gives the exact time of Conrad's birth as 10:33 am.'"
