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).
On 12 May 1781, he purchased the lordships of Tachov, Ct?nice, and ?t?ke? from Ernestine Fuchs von Bimbach, the widow of Count Adam Philip Losy von Losinthal. Here he founded his extensive family archive. His descendants later move this archive to the former Kladruby monastery, which they had acquired after it had been secularized.
His second wife was Duchess Maria Leopoldine Franziska of Arenberg (31 July 1751 – 26 August 1812); he married her in Brussels on 30 August 1781. Their son Alfred (11 May 1787 in Brussels – 21 March 1862, Vienna) was raised to the rank of prince in 1804. Their daughter Sophie Luise married Prince Karl of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg.
