Count von Tattenbach, was governor of Styria, owned several dominions in what is now Slovenia, which was then called Lower Styria , and also owned properties in Silesia. He is described as weak in character, naive and complacent. Speculating on personal gain, he conspired with the anti-Habsburg Croatian and Hungarian magnates from 1667 in the magnate conspiracy. Betrayed by his own valet, he was arrested in the course of crushing the uprising and found guilty of high treason. As a result, a large part of his possessions was confiscated and on December 1, 1671 he was executed in front of the Graz town hall . The County of Reinstein, a fiefdom that also belonged to Tattenbach, then reverted to the Elector Friedrich Wilhelm of Brandenburg .
