Franz von Suppé
Aliases: Francesco Suppé-Demelli
Born: 18 April 1819, Split, Dalmatia (now Croatia)
Died: 21 May 1895, Vienna, Austria
Suppé was born Francesco Ezechiele Ermenegildo Cavaliere Suppé Demelli in 1819 in Split, Dalmatia, a descendant of a Belgian family that probably emigrated there in the 18th century. He was a distant relative of Gaetano Donizetti. He simplified and Germanized his name when in Vienna, and changed "cavaliere" to "von". Outside Germanic circles, his name may appear on programs as Francesco Suppé-Demelli. Franz von Suppé died in Vienna in 1895.
