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.

Default Re: Captains and their Ships

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.
