The picture above does not show Rainer Josef Archduke of Austria, Viceroy of Lombardo-Veneto (1783 - 1853).

The person shown is Archduke Rainer Ferdinand (1827 - 1913), the fourth son of Archduke Rainer Joseph and his wife Maria Elisabetta Princess of Savoia-Carignan (1800 - 1856). Erzherzog Rainer Ferdinand rose to the military rank of Feldzeugmeister, the second highest rank in the Austrian military (between Feldmarschall and Feldmarschallleutnant).
