Archduke of Austria, a member of the House of Habsburg-Lorraine, and the Palatine of Hungary from 1847 to 1848.
He was the son of Archduke Joseph, Palatine of Hungary and Hermine of Anhalt-Bernburg-Schaumburg-Hoym. His mother died shortly after giving birth to him and his twin sister, Archduchess Hermine of Austria. He was brought up by his stepmother, Maria Dorothea of Württemberg.
He gained the rank of Lieutenant Field Marshal in the service of the Austrian Army. In 1841 he travelled through the different countries of the monarchy, the Kingdom of Bohemia, the Kingdom of Lombardy–Venetia, the Tyrol, the Kingdom of Piedmont-Sardinia, the Papal States, Modena and Tuscany. In 1843 Emperor Ferdinand I of Austria appointed him governor of Bohemia. He stayed in that capacity until, in January 1847, his father died and he inherited the title of Count Palatine of Hungary, from 12 November 1847 to 26 September 1848.
He was the last of the Counts Palatine, as he died on 19 February 1867, aged 49, unmarried and without heirs.

Sy Scholfield forwarded news report from "Troppauer-Zeitung," 26 September 1817: "aus Ofen .... Der Frau Erzherzogin Hermine kaiserl. Hoheit, des Herrn Erzherzogs Valatinus durcblaucbtigste Gemahlin, war in Ihrer Scbwangerscbaft glücklicb vorgerückt, und man erwartete derselben Entbindung nicht eher als im Monate Okt., als Ihre kaiserl. Hoheit in der Nacht vom 13. auf den 14. d. M. unvermuthet Geburtswehen fühlten, und mit denselben beynahe zugleich Konvulsionen eintreten.... Um 14, nach 11 Uhr Vormittags faß sich Doktor Birlo in der Nothwendigkeit, das sch zeigende Kind mit den Instrumenten abzunehenen, welches mit dem glucklicckten Erfolge geschat. Es war eine Erzherzogin ganz den Leben. Doch es zeigte sich nuh ein zweytes Kind. Die hohe Wöchnerin wurde etwas ruhiger; aber es währte nicht lange, da die Zuckungen mit erneuerter Kraft wieder sich zeigten. Gegen 1 uhr wurde das zweyte Kind, ein Erzherzog, mit den Instrumenten gehoblet, und auch diese Operazion glücklich vollbracht, aber alle Mittel, die man anwandte, un die Zuckungen der leibenden Erzherzogin zu Stllen, waren vergebens; dieselben nahmen entgegen immer mehr uberhand, und unter denselben gab Ullerhöchsidieselbe um halb 2 Uhr Nachmittags den Geist auf."
(Translation: at Buda(pest) ... The Archduchess Hermione, the most conscientious wife of his Majesty, Archduke Valatinus, was not expecting to give birth until October, but in the night of the 13th-14th of this month, her convulsions began.... On the 14th, after eleven o'clock in the morning, Dr. Birlo felt himself compelled to look at the child with his instruments, which proved successful. An Archduchess was given life. But there was a second child. The Archduchess became somewhat calmer, but it did not take long for the convulsions to recur with renewed force. At about 1 o'clock the second child, an Archduke, was delivered with the instruments, and this operation was also carried out in a happy manner, but all the means employed, and the convulsions of the Archduchess, had been in vain. The Archduchess surrendered to the spirit at half-before-two o'clock [1:30] in the afternoon).
