HistoryEdit

The dynasty originated from the bourgeoisie of Lwów (Lemberg), and was ennobled in the 18th century. Family members held important posts in the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth, as well as in the Kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria, the Duchy of Warsaw, and Congress Poland.

In 1845 Kazimierz Badeni (d. 1854), a landowner in the Lemberg area, was elevated to comital rank (Graf) by Emperor Ferdinand I of Austria; his son Władysław (1819–1888) became a member of the Galician Diet and a deputy to the Austrian Imperial Council. Władysław's son Kasimir Felix (Kazimierz Feliks; 1846–1909) served as Galician governor from 1888 to 1895 and as Minister-President of Austria from 1895 to 1897. The Counts of Badeni were hereditary peers of the Austrian House of Lords until 1918.
