Count Lamoral II Claudius Franz of Thurn and Taxis (baptized on 14 February 1621 in Brussels; died 13 September 1676 in Antwerp) was a German nobleman and Imperial Postmaster. He took over the post of Imperial Postmaster General from his mother when he came of age in 1646. In 1650 he obtained permission from the Emperor to change his family name into of Thurn Valsassina and Taxis but then opted for the shorter of Thurn and Taxis or in French de la Tour et Tassis.
