The first archducal coronet ( _de. Erzherzogskrone) was shown on a portrait of
Rudolf IV, Duke of Austria, though this coronet probably never existed. Ernest the Ironhad a coronetmade, and another was made on the death of Archduke Ferdinand II of the Tyrolin 1595. The final archducal hat ("Erzherzogshut") as the crown of the Archduchy of Austriawas made in 1616 for the regentof the Tyrol, Maximilian III. Its place of production remains unknown. Since then it has been kept at the Augustinian monasteryof Klosterneuburgin Lower Austria. It was brought to Viennain 1620 for the Ceremony of Homage by the Estates (the so called " Erbhuldigung") for the new ruler, and was last there in 1835. Besides the archducal hat there are two other coronets. One is the ducal hatkept in the Landesmuseum Joanneumin Graz, Styria. The other was made for Joseph II in 1764 for his coronation as Holy Roman Emperorin Frankfurtof which only the metal frame remains.
