Death of Tyrolean Patriot Andreas Hofer

20 February 1810

Andreas Hofer was a Tyrolean innkeeper and patriot. He was the leader of the Tyrolean rebellion in 1809, defending his home country against a French-Bavarian occupation. After successfully fighting Napoleon's troops in several battles, he was eventually captured and executed. Andreas Hofer is celebrated a national hero in Tyrol - there are many statues in his honor and his day of death is commemorated annually. He is considered a controversial figure by some, because of his anti-modern and anti-Enlightenment views.
