Austrian journalist and deputy; born in Prague 1818; died Jan. 26, 1879. He gave up the study of medicine and law, which he had been pursuing in Vienna, and became first a teacher, then an actor, and finally a publicist in Pest. He was an enthusiastic follower of Louis Kossuth during the Hungarian war of independence, and was punished with imprisonment for participation in the revolt. When liberated, in 1850, he returned to Prague, and founded a German political journal. He was an adherent of the Germans during the struggle between them and the Czechs, and received a mandate as deputy to the Reichstag, which, however, he soon gave up.
