Count Richard Belcredi (German: Richard Graf Belcredi) (12 February 1823, Jimramov, Moravia – 2 December 1902, Gmunden, Oberösterreich) was an Austrian civil servant and statesman.[1] Belcredi was prime minister (and minister of state) in Imperial Austria during 27 July 1865 – 7 February 1867, when he resigned. During 1881-1895, Belcredi was President of the Administrative Court.[1]

Life

Richard Belcredi was born on 12 February 1823, in Jimramov, Moravia.[1] He studied in Prague and Vienna law schools, and in 1854, he became district captain in Znojmo. In 1862, he became the leader of the Austro-Silesian regional government. In 1864, he finally became Secret Council and Governor of Bohemia.

Three Count Ministry

In February 1865, Count Richard Belcredi, as the Austrian minister of state, convened a meeting of Viennese bankers to find ways to finance projects. In early 1865, Emperor Franz Josef I chose Belcredi, a declared conservative, to become Minister of State and Prime Minister, replacing Prime Minister Anton von Schmerling,[1] who had resigned after failure in his liberal centralizing policies. Belcredi abolished the February Patent of 1861.[1] As Imperial Prime Minister, Belcredi's cabinet was called the "Three Count Ministry" although, actually, 4 counts were in charge: Belcredi himself, Alexander von Mensdorff-Pouilly as foreign minister, Johann Larisch von Moennich as finance minister, and Esterhazy as a minister of Hungary.
