Innsbruck University, officially the Royal Imperial Leopold Francis University in Innsbruck, originated in the Jesuit College opened at Innsbruck in 1562. In 1677 this College received the name and rank of a University. Emperor Leopold I of Austria promulgated the imperial decree of foundation in 1677. The following centuries saw two suppressions and re-foundations. The University finally found a faithful protector in the Emperor Francis Joseph I who installed the first two full faculties, philosophy and law, in 1826.
