Anton Viktor[edit]

Why was Anton Viktor removed? Although the left bank territories had been lost before 1801, Maximilian Franz had continued to rule over the right bank territories (primarily the Duchy of Westphalia), and Anton Viktor's role after his succession was no different from his predecessor's - there is no particular break in 1801. In late 1802, the landgrave of Hesse-Darmstadt seized the duchy, and this was accepted by the Diet in early 1803, but Anton Viktor was certainly the elector and archbishop up to that point. john k (talk) 17:27, 2 June 2010 (UTC)
