Maximilian Ulysses Reichsgraf von Browne

I always enjoy coming across folk who share my surname, so I am absolutely delighted to introduce Maximilian Ulysses Reichsgraf von Browne: Baron de Camus and Mountany (1705 - 1757).

He was an Austrain military leader whose "vehement opposition to all half-hearted measures brought him frequently into conflict with his superiors". That's the stuff.

What a great name. My five year old could well have been Max for short if I'd heard of it a few years ago.
