Franz Albert Seyn
Franz Albert Alexandrovich Seyn (Russian: Францъ Альбертъ Александрович Зейнъ) (July 27, 1862 – summer of 1918) was a Russian general who was Governor-General of Finland between November 24, 1909 and March 16, 1917.
Before he became Governor-General Seyn had been a staff officer in the military district of Finland and an aide to the Governor-General. Seyn contributed in the Russification of Finland as he followed in the foot-steps of his assassinated (1904) predecessor, Governor-General Nikolai Ivanovich Bobrikov. Finnish autonomy was further limited and in laws passed in 1908 and 1910 the Duma, instead of the Finnish Diet, was given rights to make laws concerning the Grand Duchy of Finland.
