Beust, Colonel Baron von

b. ?

d. ?

Austrian officer. He is mentioned by Schels as commanding a brigade during May 1796, but he is not listed in Wurzbach (not even in the various appendices). He may, however, have been of Saxon origins. Alternatively, it is possible that Schels is referring to Baron Albert Johann de Best, though Wurzbach only mentions the latter as being in Italy in 1797. (See Wurzbach, C., von. Biographisches Lexikon des Kaiserthums Oesterreich, 1856-91 vol. 1, p. 353.)

Amur leopards

A personal interest, and nothing to do with history.

They are perhaps the most endangered animals in the world -- there are only about 30 left in the wild. They desperately need help from humankind. See www.amur-leopard.org.
