Cousin Albert von Margutti

Albert Alexander Vincenz, Baron von Margutti
Born November 28, 1869
Died January 3, 1940

Albert, a first cousin of our grandfather Louis Margutti, served in the court of the Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria-Hungary for about 17 years, and in the court of the Emperor Karl until the Austrian-Hungarian Empire was dissolved at the end of World War I. He became one of Franz Joseph's personal aides.

Towards the end of his service, Albert was granted the title of Baron von Margutti. This picture was taken near the beginning of his service, in September 1902, and given to "Tante Laure" (Laura Chartrey).
