Default Captains and their Ships

Are there any records of Austro-Hungarian ships and their captains around the 1850's?

If not for Corvette or Frigate class ships than at least for Battleships possibly.

i'm actually looking for information that is a few years before that to be relevant to my search, but it's a pretty remarkable list.

exactly what i was looking for, only later than needed unfortunately.

can i ask how you came across it? is there a resource i may be able to run through myself to seek some more specific data?

i picked up "Rakouske Valecne Namornictvo 1848-1866" but it does not seem to be quite as complete as i had hoped.

i am attempting to narrow the search to captains of battleships in the 1855-1865 era but some sources cite the earliest mention of this category being Habsburg class pre-dreadnaught ships in 1900 while others designate Drache Class ships encompassed within this classification as early as the 1860's.

possibly because much interest is focused/documented on the Austro-Hungarian Empire (k.u.k.) which only came about in 1867?

The information came from a 1902 publication"Four Modern Naval Campaigns" by Sir William Laird Clowes.

Sorry I can't be of more help!

About the only one that comes to mind is the screw frigate NOVARA 53 which made a world cruise under the command of Bernard von Wullerstorff-Urbair between 1857 and 1859.

 On the 20th of April 1918, just one day before his death, the legendary Red Baron, Mannfred von Richthofen, claimed his final victory.  His famous Flying Circus was engaged in battle by Sopwith Camels of No.3 and No.201 Squadron.  Claiming his 79th victory, he had shot down Major Richard Raymond-Barker earlier in the dogfight - the British pilot being killed in the resulting crash.  However, it is his 80th and final victory that is depicted here.  In the centre of the painting, the Sopwith Camel of David Lewis has been brought into the firing line of von Richthofen, and is about to be sent down in flames from the sky - Lewis was fortunate to survive the encounter relatively unscathed.  Meanwhile the chaos of the dogfight is all around this duel, with aircraft of both sides wheeling and diving in combat.  The other pilots depicted are Weiss, Bell, Riley, Steinhauser, Mohnicke, Hamilton and Wenzl.

 Wherever the GIs went they took their Jeeps with them, and before the war was run the little quarter-ton, 4-wheel drive, utility vehicle was as well known around the world as the Model T Ford. Nicolas Trudgian has painted a compelling image, set back in time when the little Jeep was omnipresent on and around the roads and battlefields of a war-torn world. It is Christmas 1944 and, as a gaggle of 339th FG P-51 Mustangs disturb the peace of this ancient English village, a little Jeep waits patiently outside the pub while her occupants sample the local ale. A wonderfully nostalgic painting that will bring back pleasant memories to many.
Welcome Respite by Nicolas Trudgian.
