Rudolph I (also known as Rudolph of Habsburg) ( – ) was King of the Romans from 1273 until his death. Rudolph was the first of the count-kings, so-called by the historian, Bernd Schneidmüller.
He played a vital role in raising the Habsburg dynasty to a leading position among the Imperial feudal dynasties. Originally a Swabian count, he was the first Habsburg to acquire the duchies of Austria and Styria, territories that would remain under Habsburg rule for more than 600 years and would form the core of the Habsburg Monarchy and the present-day country of Austria.
