Johann Ritter von Henriquez
Johann Ritter von Henriquez was born in Belova, Croatia on 16 May 1861. He began the war ranked as a Feldmarschalleutnant.  Once in the field, FML Henriquez was in control of the 17. Infantry Division.  He kept this command to November, and then handed it over to GM Aurel von le Beau.  Henriquez took control of the 15. Infantry Division in July 1915, replacing GM Karl Stracker, but this arrangement lasted only a month and Stracker resumed command in August.  Now, Henriquez was granted his own Corps in August 1915.  However, he led Korps Henriquez for only one month before handing it over to FML Emmerich Hadfy von Livno, and the Corps was redesignated.  Following the departure of GdI Hermann Kövess von Kövessháza in September 1915, FML Henriquez was appointed to command the XII. Corps.  He did this successfully until July 1917, when he was replaced by FML Rudolf von Braun. 
On 23 August 1917, Henriquez was appointed to command the II. Isonzo Army, which was formed from the Isonzo Army of GdI
Svetozar Boroevic. He was most likely elevated to the rank of General der Infanterie upon assuming this command.  Henriquez remained in command of this force until 6 January 1918, when the front was stabilised on the Piave River.  Nevertheless, the II. Isonzo Army of Henriquez was merged with the I. Isonzo Army and renamed the Isonzo Army, commanded by General Wenzel von Wurm.
