Who was Franz Albert Seyn?

Franz Albert Alexandrovich Seyn was a Russian general who was Governor-General of Finland between November 24, 1909 and March 16, 1917.

Before he became Governor-General Seyn had been a staff officer in the military district of Finland and an aide to the Governor-General. Seyn contributed in the Russification of Finland as he followed in the foot-steps of his assassinated predecessor, Governor-General Nikolai Ivanovich Bobrikov. Finnish autonomy was further limited and in laws passed in 1908 and 1910 the Duma, instead of the Finnish Diet, was given rights to make laws concerning the Grand Duchy of Finland.

After the February Revolution the Russian Provisional Government arrested Seyn on March 16, 1917 and brought him to Saint Petersburg where he apparently was killed the next year.
