Baron Paul Gautsch, fully Paul Gautsch Feirherr von Frankenthurn (February 26, 1851 Döbling – April 20, 1918 Vienna) was an Austrian political figure who served three times as Minister-President.

Biography[edit]

After graduating from the University of Vienna, he entered the Ministry of Education. He was director of the Theresa Academy (1881–85), and then Austrian Minister of Education under the cabinets of Eduard Graf Taaffe (1885–93) and Kasimir Felix Graf Badeni (1895-97).

He served as Minister President from 1897–98, when he revoked the language ordinances made by Badeni; again in 1904-06, when he prepared the way for universal suffrage; and finally June through October 1911.
