Egon Caesar Conte Corti (born April 2, 1886 in Agram, now Zagreb, Croatia, died 17 September 1953 in Klagenfurt) was an officer, historian and writer and best-seller author. Corti came from an ancient Lombard family of nobles. He wrote biographies on the history of the 19th century and has been a specialist for biographical works on personalities from the European high aristocracy since the interwar. Egon Caesar Conti Corti was profoundly monarchist-oriented, as is also evident in his extensive work. Cortis Books and biographies stand apart today from other works of a similar kind in a specific way: on the one hand, they contain numerous original statements from the Zeitzeitzeugen, which still in Cortis Zeit still lived. On the other hand, the works contain historically unique sources. Conte Corti - the only author and their own, as well as noble - have access to their secret private archives, which are now closed again, some of which were destroyed during the Second World War.
