Konrad Grallert von Cebrów (March 27, 1865 – 1942) was a divisional commander in the Austro-Hungarian Army.

Life[edit]

Feldmarschall-Leutnant Konrad Grallert von Cebrów was born as Konrad Karl August Grallert in Gumbinnen (East Prussia) to Joachim Grallert (a prominent watchmaker and jeweler) and Berthe Hoefler.

His family moved to Arad in the Transylvanian region of Hungary (now part of Romania) in 1867. He was a qualified general staff officer and certainly by his appointment at the cadet school at Kraków in 1901 was already a member of the general staff.

He was involved with the German attacks that were repulsed by the Russians on Dvina and at Cebrow in Galicia on 9 March 1916. He was raised to nobility by Charles IV and received the right to use the name "of Cebrow” in 1917 or 1918.

Konrad's older brother inherited the family business and after the war Konrad moved to Papa, which is in Western Hungary today. He was the head teacher of a secondary school. He died in Budapest, 1942.
