July 29, 2009
Taubes was awarded the Order of the Iron Crown, and he was the Physician in Ordinary to Johann Josef Wenzel Graf Radetzky von Radetz, the Vice Gerent Archduke John of Austria, and the homeopathic practitioner of the bankers Grunelius and Co, Moritz August von Bethmann Hollweg, Daniel Heinrich Mumm, and Amschel Rothschild,
Johann Taubes obviously travelled a great deal, and he practiced in Verona, Frankfurt and Meran, and also in Milan, where he took over the practice of Christophe Hartung in Milan, Johann Taubes eventually died in Vienna.
In Bernhard Hirschel’s Zietschrift for February 19, 1879, is the following: Dr. Johann Taubes died in his 75th year at Vienna. (Zeitung fuer Hom. Klinik, volume 28, page 23). (Mentioned again in the Zeitung in 1883).
Reverend William Taube treated Friederich Maximillian Bernhardt Fincke with homeopathy for typhoid fever in Frankfurt, and taught Friederich Maximillian Bernhardt Fincke homeopathy. In 1850, the Widow Taube, a fine singer with an alto voice, was treated by Friederich Maximillian Bernhardt Fincke for a problem in her throat, and he noted that she had had a left breast lump cured by homeopathy ‘many years ago’ (presumably by her relative Johann Taubes?)
