Rudolf the First of the German Habsburg Dynasty

Rudolph or Rudolf (French: Rodolphe, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish: Rodolfo) or Rodolphe is a male first name, and, less commonly, a surname. It is an ancient Germanic name deriving from two stems: Hrōþi, Hruod, Hróðr or Hrōð, meaning "fame", "glory" , and olf meaning "wolf"(Hrōþiwulfaz). It is a common name in many Germanic-language speaking countries in Europe, but in the North-American countries it is rare.
