Picture of Prince Johann Nepomuk von LiechtensteinBorn 1724, Died 1748.

Johann Nepomuk Karl, who was only eight years old when his father died, and he grew up under the guardianship of his uncle, Prince Josef Wenzel. In accordance with the rank of his House, his uncle prepared him for the assumption of government duties by means of a thorough education.

As part of this preparation, Johann Nepomuk is thought to have accompanied his uncle on his mission to Paris. In 1745, Johann Nepomuk then assumed the Regency. He proved himself to be eccentric, however, and lacked economic talent.

Three years later, shortly after his appointment as Royal Hungarian and Royal Bohemian treasurer, the Prince died at the age of only 24 without any male descendant.
