Austrian Navy Origins of the Austro-Hungarian Navy VideoAustro-Hungarian Navy in WW1 Originally German 'UB' and 'UB' from , but sold to Austrian Navy and recommissioned in July Note - My thanks to Danijel Zavratnik from Slovenia for noting that most of the place names are Italian spellings and that many have changed since World War 1. The Austro-Hungarian Navy can easily find its origin in the will of Emperor Franz Joseph 1, ascended the throne in , to strengthen the Nordic influences in his navy, so far influenced by the Italian shipbuilding (in particular Trieste). Rear Admiral Von Dahlerup, a Danish formed the Columbia school, was appointed Chief of Staff of the Navy. Austrian Empire Navy Rum is produced in small Austrian Empire Navy Rum Reserva is produced in smallbatches, using matured Rum from a wide range of hand-selected barrels.

Her main quality put forward was speed. Therefore steam turbines were used logically, and the hull was to allow the necessary number of boilers to be installed, in order to obtain the required power and a speed superior to the cruisers of the time, sacrificing both protection and armament to reach it.
The empire has no previous experience of turbines, so they were ordered directly from UK, a batch of six Parsons turbines.
Two were coupled with 16 Yarrow water tube boilers, mater to four propellers. The long hull guaranteed excellent hydrodynamics.
But the Admiral Spaun, launched in and completed in was considered a prototype. The beginning of her career was shaky as she was often immobilized for adjustments and structural problems and propulsion fixes.
Her propellers configuration was not retained on the following Novara class. Only the Saida was accepted in service before the war in August 1st, Helgoland was commissioned on 29 August and Novara in January They were reinforced, used German AEG turbines or local Mems-Pfenniger turbines, and received two additional mm guns.
In , they received a 66 mm AA gun, and three twin banks of in mm TTs, one of which was at the stern. All were very active, participating in many operations where their speed was an advantage.
Saida and Helgoland were awarded to the Italians, and were appreciated enough they served until under the name of Venezia and Brindisi.

In , another attempt to formulate an overseas trading company was undertaken with the establishment of the Austrian East India Company.
Within the next two years, Bolts established factories on the Malabar Coast , on the southeastern African coast at Delagoa Bay , and at the Nicobar Islands.
Furthermore, the Austrian government did not wish to provoke other foreign powers after having to fight two major continental wars in the span of just 20 years.
Vienna was also unwilling to lend much monetary support to either the company or towards the creation of a navy sufficiently large enough to protect its interests.
This was partially because the Austrian government expected the ports of Trieste and Fiume to bear the cost of constructing and maintaining a fleet.
The Austrian Navy was finally established in , with Emperor Joseph II purchasing two cutters in Ostend, each armed with 20 guns, and sending them to Trieste.
Joseph II also introduced Austria's Naval Ensign , which consisted of a red-white-red standard with the crown of the Archduchy of Austria on the left.
Prior to this, Austrian ships flew the yellow and black flag of the Habsburg Monarchy. The onset of the French Revolution in and the subsequent French Revolutionary Wars greatly changed the political face of Europe and resulted in the largest expansion of the Austrian Navy up to that point in time.
The Republic of Venice and its territories were divided between the two states, and Austria received the city of Venice along with Istria and Dalmatia.
Venice's naval forces and facilities were also handed over to Austria and became the basis of the formation of the future Austrian Navy.
The Treaty of Campo Formio resulted in Austria becoming the largest, and indeed the only, naval power in the Adriatic.
Prior to the incorporation of the remnants of the Venetian navy , the Austrian Navy only consisted of the two cutters purchased in , as well as several armed merchant vessels and gunboats.
While Venice had suffered under French occupation, and the ships Austria acquired from the city's annexation allowed the Austrian Navy to grow to some 37 vessels by the start of the War of the Second Coalition in These ships mostly consisted of small coastal craft, with some guns and crew members between them.
This still remained a very small naval force, which with an average of just three guns and 21 crew members per ship, was largely unable to project power outside of the Adriatic or protect Austrian shipping in the Mediterranean.
Despite having 74 guns per-ship, far more than any other vessels in the Adriatic, the Austrian government chose to sell the ships for breaking rather than incorporate them into the Navy.
At the end of the 18th century, several new regulations were also imposed regarding naval activity. These included instructing officers to refrain from excessive shouting when giving sailing commands, directing the captains of each ship in the navy not to conduct business transactions on their own behalf, and ordering surgeons to fumigate their ships several times a day in order to prevent the outbreak of any disease.
The most notable regulation imposed directed naval officers to learn German. At the time, most Austrian naval officers were Italian or Spanish, and Italian remained the main language of the officer corps until This policy change however reflected Austria's desire to re-order its multi-ethnic Empire more towards the German states of the Holy Roman Empire.
Believing his position as Holy Roman Emperor to be untenable, Francis abdicated the throne of the Holy Roman Empire on 6 August , and declared the Holy Roman Empire to be dissolved in the same declaration.
This was a political move to impair the legitimacy of the Confederation of the Rhine. Two years earlier, as a reaction to Napoleon making himself an Emperor of the French , Francis had raised Austria to the status of an empire.
Hence, after , he reigned as Francis I, Emperor of Austria. Following Austria's defeat at the Battle of Wagram , the Empire sued for peace.
The resulting Treaty of Schönbrunn imposed harsh terms on Austria. These terms eliminated Austria's coastline along the Adriatic, thus destroying the Austrian Navy, with its warships being handed over to the French to guard the newly formed the Illyrian provinces.
Between and , there was no Austrian coastline and subsequently no navy to defend it. Under the conditions of the Congress of Vienna, the former Austrian Netherlands were transferred to the newly created United Kingdom of the Netherlands , while Austria received Lombardy-Venetia as compensation.
These territorial changes gave Austria five ships of the line, two frigates, one corvette , and several smaller ships which had been left in Venice by the French during the Napoleonic Wars.
The decades of warfare Austria had participated in since however had left the Empire on the verge of bankruptcy, and most of these ships were sold or abandoned for financial reasons.
By the end of the decade however, the Austrian Navy began to be rebuilt. The growth of the Austrian Navy in the years following the Congress of Vienna were largely driven by political necessities, as well economic conditions.
During the s and early s, Austrian trade along the Danube and within the Mediterranean grew rapidly. In , the Austrian Danube Steam Navigation Company was founded and in , its steamship Marie Dorothee became the first of its kind to travel the Mediterranean on a voyage between Trieste and Constantinople.
While Austria's merchant marine grew throughout the s and s, the Austrian Navy grew alongside it in order to provide protection on the high seas.
During the Greek War of Independence , the Austrian Navy engaged Greek pirates who routinely attempted to attack Austrian shipping in order to help fund the Greek rebellion against Ottoman rule.
During the same time period, Barbary corsairs continued to prey upon Austrian shipping in the Western Mediterranean. These two threats greatly stretched the resources of Austria's naval forces, which were still rebuilding after the Napoleonic Wars.
This action resulted in Morocco returning the captured Austrian ship, as well as pay damages to Vienna. The bombardment of Larache resulted in the end of North African pirates raiding Austrian shipping in the Mediterranean Sea.
By the s, an attempt to modernize the Navy had begun. The Austrian government granted new funding for the construction of additional ships and the purchasing of new equipment.
The most notable change which was undertaken was the incorporation of steamships, with the first such ship in the Austrian Navy, the tonne long-ton paddle steamer Maria Anna , being constructed in Fiume.
Maria Anna ' s first trials took place in The third son of Archduke Charles, a famous veteran of the Napoleonic Wars, Friedrich's decision to join the Navy greatly enhanced its prestige among the Austrian nobility and public.
During his time in the Navy, Friedrich introduced many modernizing reforms, aiming to make the Austrian Navy less "Venetian" in character and more "Austrian".
Friedrich and the Austrian Navy had their first major military encounter during the Oriental Crisis of In , the Ottomans attempted to reclaim these territories but after a decisive defeat at the Battle of Nezib , the Ottoman Empire appeared on the verge of collapse.
The Convention offered Muhammad Ali hereditary rule of Egypt while nominally remaining part of the Ottoman Empire if he withdrew from most of Syria.
Muhammad Ali hesitated to accept the offer however and in September the European powers moved to engage Muhammad Ali's forces. On 26 September, Friedrich, commanding the Austrian frigate Guerriera , bombarded the port of Sidon with British support.
The Austrians and British landed in the city and stormed its coastal fortifications, capturing it on 28 September. After capturing Sidon, Austria's naval squadron sailed on to Acre which bombarded the city in November, destroying its coastal fortifications and silencing the city's guns.
During the storming of the city, Friedrich personally led the Austro-British landing party and hoisted the Ottoman, British, and Austrian flags over the Acre's citadel upon its capture.
In , Archduke Friedrich was promoted to the rank of Vice-Admiral and become Commander-in-Chief of the Navy at the age of 23, but his tenure as the head of the Austrian Navy ended just three years after his appointment when he died in Venice at the age of Across the Austrian Empire, nationalist sentiments among Austria's various ethnic groups led to the revolutions in Austria to take several different forms.
Liberal sentiments prevailed extensively among the German Austrians, which were further complicated by the simultaneous events in the German states.
The Hungarians within the Empire largely sought to establish their own independent kingdom or republic, which resulted in a revolution in Hungary.
Italians within the Austrian Empire likewise sought to unify with the other Italian-speaking states of the Italian Peninsula to form a "Kingdom of Italy".
The revolution in Vienna sparked anti-Habsburg riots in Milan and Venice. Field Marshal Joseph Radetzky was unable to defeat the Venetian and Milanese insurgents in Lombardy-Venetia, and had to order his forces to evacuate western Italy, pulling his forces back to a chain of defensive fortresses between Milan and Venice known as the Quadrilatero.
With Vienna itself in the middle of an uprising against the Habsburg Monarchy, the Austrian Empire appeared on the brink of collapse.
Venice was at the time one of Austria's largest and most important ports, and the revolution which began there nearly led to the disintegration of the Austrian Navy.
The Austrian commander of the Venetian Naval Yard was beaten to death by his own men, while the head of the city's Marine Guard was unable to provide any aid to suppress the uprising as most of the men under his command deserted.
Vice-Admiral Anton von Martini, Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, attempted to put an end to the rebellion but was betrayed by his officers, the majority of whom were Venetians, and subsequently captured and held prisoner.
Fearing mutinies, Austrian officers ultimately relieved of these Italian sailors of their duty and permitted them to return home.
While this action left the Navy drastically undermanned, it prevented any wide-scale disintegration within the Navy which the Austrian Army had repeatedly suffered from in Italy.
The loss of so many Italian crew members and officers meant that the remaining ships which did not fall into rebel hands in Venice were lacking many crews.
Out of roughly 5, men who were members of the Austrian Navy prior to the revolution, only 72 officers and sailors remained.
Further complicating matters for the Austrian Navy was the loss of Venice's naval dockyards, warehouses, its arsenal, as well as three corvettes and several smaller vessels to the Venetian rebels.
Martini's capture left the Navy without a commander for the fifth time in as many months. Gyulai recalled every Austrian ship in the Mediterranean, the Adriatic, and in the Levant.
Due to Trieste's close location to the parts of Italy revolting against Austrian rule at the time, Gyulai also chose the small port of Pola as the new base for the Austrian Navy.
This marked the first time the city had been used as an Austrian naval base, and from onwards the city continued to serve as a base for Austrian warships until the end of World War I.
Meanwhile, fortunes continued to fade for the Austrians. The Papal States and the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies both joined the war on the side of Sardinia,   the later sending a naval force into the Adriatic in cooperation with Sardinia to help size Venice.
This Italian fleet consisted of five frigates and several smaller vessels acquired by the Italian nationalists in Venice.
Against this force, the Austrian Navy counted three frigates of 44 to 50 guns, two corvettes of 18 and 20 guns, eight brigs of six to 16 guns, 34 gunboats with three guns each, and two steamers of two guns.
Despite its relatively large size for navies in the Adriatic, the Austrian Navy lacked experience against the combined Italian forces and Gyulai decided to withdraw his ships to Pola.
The Austrian fleet was too small to go on the offensive against the Italians, while the Italian naval commander, Rear Admiral Giovanbattista Albini , was under orders not to attack the port of Trieste as its location within the German Confederation may draw in other powers in central Europe against Sardinia.
Early experimentation on the use of a self-propelled explosive device—forerunner to the torpedo—to attack the Italian ships also failure due to the technological constraints of the time.
Additional proposals to break the Italian fleet by using fire ships was rejected as an "inhumane" way of fighting. The stalemate in the Adriatic came to an end as the Papal States and the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies pulled out of the war.
While Martini unsuccessfully lobbied for the purchase of new steam ships to re-establish a blockade of Venice, Sardinia resumed the war with Austria on 12 March This led to the disastrous Sardinian defeat at the Battle of Novara ten days later.
The Revolutions of marked a turning point in the history of the Austrian Navy. Up until that time, the Navy had been dominated by the Italian language, customs, and traditions.
Prior to the revolution, the Austrian Navy was mostly made up of Italian crew members, the Italian language was the primary language, and even Italian ship names were used over German ones, such as Lipsia rather than Leipzig.
Indeed, in the years before , the Navy was largely considered to be a "local affair of Venice". After retaking Venice, the Austrians acquired several warships which were under construction or already seaworthy.
Most of these ships were added to the strength of the Austrian Navy, increasing the size and strength of the Navy considerably by the year Here the Austrian screw-driven gunboat Kerka crew: was launched in in service until Dahlerup introduced many personal reforms, such as reorganizing the command structure of the Navy, establishing new service regulations, and setting up a school for naval officers.
He also began the process of replacing Italian with German as the spoken de facto language of the Austrian Navy. However, Dahlerup's command style clashed heavily with the prevailing culture within the Austrian Navy and he resigned after just over two years.

Austrian torpedo and gun calibres in inches:. Torpedoes: Guns: August Strength 3. In August , the three completed 'Tegetthof' dreadnoughts and three 'Radetzky' pre-Dreadnoughts formed the First Battle Squadron, spending most of the war as a fleet-in-being.
With the fall of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the state of Yugoslavia was formed by the southern Slavs and declared on the side of the Allies.
Apparently ignoring the new political situation, the Italians went ahead with a planned attack on Pola. Early in the morning of the 1st November and with few defensive precautions now being taken, two Italian frogmen, Maj of Naval Engineers Raffaele Rossetti and Doctor Lt Raffaele Paolucci, slipped into the naval base and attached mines to the dreadnought and liner 'Wien'.
Both ships sank, 'Viribus Unitis' capsizing and going down around dawn. Several hundred men died including the new Captain.
Wartime Additions 1. Leaving Pola on the 9th, she and the three other 'Tegetthof' dreadnoughts of the 1st Battle Division, First Battle Squadron sailed to support a planned cruiser raid on the Otranto Barrage, now believed by the Germans to be a serious obstacle to U-boat movements.
Two Italian anti-submarine motor boats - 'Mas. She rolled over and sank at Due to the conditions - twilight etc, MAS 21 probably attacked her and not 'Tegetthof' as noted above.
The information has not been confirmed offically. Information is again courtesy of Danijel Zavratnik from Slovenia. All three ships, serving as the 2nd Battle Division, First Battle Squadron, took part in a May shore bombardment of the Italian coast with the three dreadnoughts, but thereafter remained inactive at Pola as a fleet-in-being.
August Strength 6. In August , all six pre-dreadnoughts formed the Second Battle Squadron. August Strength 4.
