BUBNA, count of, descended from a*, old family in Bohemia, was, early in life the chamberlain of the emperor of Aus tria, afterwards entered the military ser vice, and rose to the rank of fieldmar shallieutenant. At the end of 1812, he was sent, by his court, with, extraordinary commissions, to Napoleon, at Paris, and, in May, 1813, was sent again to him at Dresden. In the war of 1813, he commanded an Austrian division with much honor, and, in 1814, received the chief command of the Austrian army which was to pass through Geneva to the south of France. Here he showed as much caution in his movements as forbearance and humanity towards the inhabitants. He advanced upon Lyons, which was defended by marshal Augereau, but was unsuccessful in his attacks upon the city, till the corps of Bianchi and HessenHomberg came to his assistance, upon which the prince of HessenHomberg took the chief command. B. remained at Lyons till the return of the allied forces, and then retired to Vienna. After the landing of Napoleon in 1815, he again led a corps, under Frimont, against Lyons, and in Savoy opposed marshal Suchet, till Paris was conquered, and the marshal retreated beyond Lyons. He then took possession of Lyons without opposition, established a courtmartial to punish the disturbers of public order, and proceeded with greater severity than on his former campaign. In September, he marched back to Austria, and received, for his services, valuable estates in Bohemia, from his emperor. In the insurrection of Piedmont (q. v.), 1821, the count de B. received the chief command of the Austrian troops destined to restore the ancient government. After the accomplishment of this commission, he was appointed general commandant of Lombardy. He died at Milan, June 6, 1825, in the 56th year of his age.
