He is from a rooted noble Saxon family. He started college in 1825 as a medical student. He became a medical doctor in 1833 and moved to Vienna, and married a year later in 1834. Feuchtersleben, who kept his ties with the university, was appointed dean of the medical faculty in 1844. He was particularly interested in educational matters, and although he rejected the ministry of education offered in 1848, he took up a smaller post at the ministry of education. He wanted to reform the education system, but the obstacles he faced eventually forced him to resign from his post. He died on September 3, 1849 in Vienna. Who is Tersleben?
