Detail Description

Title: Divotissime azioni di grazie umiliate a dio Signore dalla Nazione Ebrea di Mantova per le segnalate vittorie riportate dalle armi invitte di... nostro sovrano Imperatore e Re Giuseppe secondo e segnatamente per l’acclamata presa di Belgrado...

Poem and liturgies upon the successful capture of the Belgrade Fortress by Giuseppe II in the war against Turkey. Joseph II (Giuseppe II; Joseph Benedikt Anton Michael Adam; 1741 – 1790), Holy Roman Emperor from 1765 to 1790 and ruler of the Habsburg lands from 1780 to 1790. He was the eldest son of Empress Maria Theresa and her husband, Emperor Francis I, and was the brother of Marie Antoinette. He was thus the first ruler in the Austrian dominions of the House of Lorraine, styled Habsburg-Lorraine. Joseph was a proponent of enlightened absolutism; however, his commitment to modernizing reforms subsequently engendered significant opposition, which eventually culminated in an ultimate failure to fully implement his programmes. He has been ranked, with Catherine the Great of Russia and Frederick the Great of Prussia, as one of the three great Enlightenment monarchs. His policies are now known as Josephinism. He died with no sons and was succeeded by his younger brother, Leopold II.
