Heinrich Ritter von Zeissberg (July 8, 1839 – May 27, 1899), Austrian historian, was born in Vienna, and in 1865 became professor of history at the university of Lemberg.

In 1871 he removed to Innsbruck; in 1873 he was appointed professor at the university of Vienna, and here he was historical tutor to the crown prince Rudolph. In 1891 he was made director of the Vienna institute for historical research, and in 1896 director of the imperial court library at Vienna. He resigned his professorial chair in 1897.

Zeissberg's writings deal mainly with the history of Austria and of Poland, and among them the following may be mentioned:

  • Arno, erster Erzbischof van Salzburg (Vienna, 1863)
  • Misico I. 1867
  • Die Kriege Kaiser Heinrichs II. mit Herzog Boleslaw I. von Polen (Vienna, 1868)
  • Die polnische Geschichtsschreibung des Mittelalters (Leipzig, 1873)
  • Rudolf von Habsburg und der österreichische Staatsgedanke (Vienna, 1882)
  • Über das Rechtsverfahren Rudolfs von Habsburg gegen Ottokar von Böhmen (Vienna, 1887)
  • Der österreichische Erbfolgestreit nach dem Tode des Königs Ladislaus Posthumus, 1457-58 (Vienna, 1879)

Dealing with more recent times he wrote:

  • Zur deutschen Kaiserpolitik Oesterreichs: ein Beitrag zur Geschichte des Revolutionsjahres 1795 (Vienna, 1899)
  • Zwei Jahre belgischer Geschichte 1791-92 (Vienna, 1891)
  • Belgien unter der Generalstatthalterschaft Erzherzog Karls 1793-94 (Vienna, 1893-94)
  • Erzherzog Karl von Oesterreich. Lebensbild (Vienna, 1895)
  • Franz Josef I. (Vienna, 1888)

He edited three volumes of the Quellen zur Geschichte der Deutschen Kaiserpolitik Oesterreichs während der französischen Revolutionskriege 1790-1801 (Vienna, 1882-1885, 1890).

Notes[edit]

Regarding personal names: Ritter is a title, translated approximately as Sir (denoting a Knight), not a first or middle name. There is no equivalent female form.
