Franz II, Holy Roman Emperor, ruled in that position, 1792-1806. He dissolved the Holy Roman Empire at that time, and formed the Austrian Empire. This occurred soon after Napoleon’s victory at the Battle of Austerlitz. Within the new Austrian Empire remained Lombardy-Venetia, which Franz ruled until his death in 1830.
