Ferenc Zichy

Bishop of Györ, Hungary, from 1743 to 1783. This portrait is interesting, because I found a photo of the pectoral cross that the bishop is wearing:

I also found a picture of his crozier...

... and a photo of a handful of nice and shiny rings that belonged to the bishops of Györ (and that are still kept in the diocesan treasure chamber):
