In 1822 Salomon Mayer Rothschild was made part of the Austrian nobility 
when Emperor Francis I awarded him the hereditary title "Freiherr" (Baron)

Previous Prince & Princess title of Reuss, ruling Royal house of Thuringea, through the sovereign and Princely family of Reuss, related to the Habsburgs, Bourbons and Saxe-Coburg-Gothas.

The Emporer down graded the title Prince to Baron due to "Love marriage" not arranged marriage.

In Austria

The Republic of Austria abolished hereditary noble titles for its citizens by the Adelsaufhebungsgesetz of 3 April 1919 and the corresponding decree of the state government. The public use of such titles was and still is prohibited, and violations could be fined. Hans Freiherr von Schwarz, as an Austrian citizen, therefore lost his title of Freiherr von and would simply be named as Hans Schwarz in his Austrian passport.

In practice, however, former noble titles are still used socially in Austria; some people consider it a matter of courtesy to use them. The late Otto von Habsburg, in his childhood Crown Prince of Austria-Hungary, was styled Otto Habsburg-Lothringen in his post-1919 Austrian passport, and Otto von Habsburg in his German passport (he was a Member of the European Parliament for Germany).

In short Austrian Titles are like French Titles legally "Titled Names with Coat of Arms".

'Austrian Baron Crown'

Male = Baron or Freiherr
Female = Baroness or Freifrau

Daughters = Baroness or Freiin
Sons = Baron or Freiherr

All legitimate sons of a Freiherr shared his title and rank, and could be referred to as Freiherr or Baron. The wife of a Freiherr is titled Freifrau (literally "free lady") or Baroness, and the daughter of a Freiherr is called Freiin (short for Freiherrin).

Freiherr (German: [ˈfʁaɪˌhɛɐ̯]; male, abbreviated as Frhr.), Freifrau ([ˈfʁaɪˌfʁaʊ]; his wife, abbreviated as Frfr., literally "free lord" or "free lady") and Freiin ([ˈfʁaɪ.ɪn]; his unmarried daughters and maiden aunts).
