Georg Ludwig Ritter von Trapp

Georg Ludwig Ritter von Trapp (April 4, 1880 Zadar-May 30, 1947 Stowe) also known as Korvettenkapitän Georg Ludwig Ritter von Trapp or Baron Georg von Trapp was an Austrian naval officer, sailor, singer and nobleman. He had ten children, Agathe von Trapp, Maria Franziska von Trapp, Werner von Trapp, Hedwig von Trapp, Johanna von Trapp, Martina von Trapp, Rupert von Trapp, Rosemarie von Trapp, Eleonore von Trapp and Johannes von Trapp.

Georg Ludwig Ritter von Trapp was born in Zadar, which was then part of Austria-Hungary but is now Croatia. He entered the Austro-Hungarian Navy in 1894 and served in World War I, rising to the rank of Korvettenkapitän (corvette captain). It was during this time that he met and married his first wife, Agatha Whitehead, with whom he had seven children.

After the war, von Trapp and his family found themselves struggling financially due to the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. He turned to music as a way to support his family, forming the Trapp Family Singers with his wife and children. The group toured extensively throughout Europe and the United States, becoming famous for their performances of traditional Austrian folk songs and hymns.

In 1938, von Trapp's second wife, Maria Augusta Kutschera, joined the family as a governess for his children. They fell in love and were married the following year. The von Trapps fled Austria in 1938 after the Nazis annexed the country, eventually settling in the United States.

Georg von Trapp passed away in Stowe, Vermont in 1947, leaving behind a legacy as a naval hero, musician, and father of a remarkable family.
