Archduke of Austria, as the fifth child and the second son of Archduke Karl Stephan of Austria and Archduchess Maria Theresia, Princess of Tuscany.

Archduke Leo Karl was his father’s answer to the Eastern European question, and became the would-be Regent of the Habsburgs' zone of influence in the Balkan region.

He served in the Austrian army until the fall of the Habsburg Empire, after which he served with great distinction in the Polish army.

In October 1922, he married Austrian noblewoman Maria-Klothilde von Thuillières Gfn von Montjoye-Vaufrey et de la Roche (1893–1978), known among family as "Maja", in Vienna. The marriage was acceptable although morganatic.

He died of tuberculosis on 28 April 1939 at his estate in Bestwina, in southern Poland.
