ANTON GINDELY (1829–1892), German historian, was the son of a German father and a Slavonic mother, and was born at Prague on the 3rd of September 1829. He studied at Prague and at Olmutz, and, after travelling extensively in search of historical material, became professor of history at the university of Prague and archivist for Bohemia in 1862. He died at Prague on the 24th of October 1892. Gindely's chief work is his Geschichte des dreissigjahrigen Kriegas (Prague, 1869-188o), which has been translated into English (New York, 1884); and his historical work is mainly concerned with the period of the Thirty Years' War. Perhaps the most important of his numerous other works are: Geschichte der bohmischen Bruder (Prague, 18S7–1858); Rudolf II. and seine Zeit (1862-1868), and a criticism of Wallenstein, Waldstein wahrend seines ersten Generalats (1886). He wrote a history of Bethlen Gabor in Hungarian, and edited the Monumenta historiae Bohemica. Gindely's posthumous work, Geschichte der Gegenreformation in Bohmen, was edited by T. Tupetz (1894).
