Joseph Louis Nicholas, Count of Windisch-Graetz, Baron of Waldstein and Thal (6 December 1744 – 24 January 1802 in ?t?ke?) was an Austrian nobleman, a member of the House of Windisch-Graetz, and was chamberlain to Archduchess Marie Antoinette of Austria. He was the second son of Count Leopold Carl Joseph of Windish-Graetz (1718-1746) and his wife Countess Maria Antonia Josepha von Khevenhüller (1726-1746).
