Austria, Habsburg Monarchy / Erzherzog Ferdinand II. (Archduke Ferdinand II of Further Austria)

Austria, Habsburg Monarchy - Erzherzog Ferdinand II. (Archduke Ferdinand II of Further Austria) (25 July 1564 - 24 January 1595)

Ferdinand II, Archduke of Further Austria, was ruler of Further Austria including Tirol. The son of Ferdinand I, Holy Roman Emperor, he was married to Philippine Welser in his first marriage. In his second marriage to Anna Juliana Gonzaga, he was the father of Anna of Tyrol, the would-be Holy Roman Empress.

After the death of Philippine in 1580, he married Anne Catherine, a daughter of William I, Duke of Mantua, in 1582.

Archduke Ferdinand died on 24 January 1595. Since his sons from the first marriage were not entitled to the inheritance, and the second produced only surviving daughters, Tirol was reunified with the other Habsburg lines. His daughter from the Mantuan marriage became the Empress Anna, consort of Emperor Mathias, who received his Further Austrian inheritance.
