Joseph of Lorraine, Joseph II (Vienna, March 13, 1741 - Vienna, February 20, 1790), eldest son of Maria Theresa of Austria, he succeeded his father as emperor of the Romans in 1765 and became a corregant of the hereditary possessions of the Habsburgs ; he inherited these in 1780 on the death of his mother, Empress Maria Theresa. Joseph II was a modern and reformist ruler, though his reforms, too fast, were neither understood nor accepted by his subjects. He allied with Prussia and the Russian Empire to dismember Poland (1772) and almost triggered a European war in 1778 by wanting to seize Bavaria. He tried to influence the course of French foreign policy by using his influence on his sister Marie Antoinette of Austria. He also tried to dismember the Ottoman Empire by allying himself with the Russian Empire.
