His brother was also a renowned sponsor and an art collector who, among other undertakings, supported the creation of the gallery of the Association of Patriotic Art Lovers (the National Gallery in Prague nowadays). Vincent Maria had a successful military career. He became the field campaign master, Captain of the Bodyguard and the Grand Prior of the Order of Malta in Bohemia from 1819 to 1824. He achieved a great military career during which he was decorated many times. For his merit in conquering the camp of enemy soldiers in Calafat during the war on Turks, he was awarded the Knight Cross of the Military Order of Marie Theresa. He was decorated with the Commander Cross for the battle of Limburg (at Neuwied) near Koblenz on 18th April 1797. On 2nd December 1805 during the battle of Austerlitz, he was the marshal-lieutenant of the 4th Austro-Russian Infantry Column of 16,000 men. The Austrian part of the infantry had been formed out of hastily recruited and inexperienced young men, which had a negative effect on the battle, which was ill-prepared and badly managed by the allies. On 23rd November, he was awarded the Order of the Golden Fleece for his merits by Emperor Franz II., when he also received the Grand Cross of the French Order of Legion of Honour.
