Josef Franz Wagner (20 March 1856 – 5 June 1908) was an Austrian military bandmaster and composer. He is sometimes known by the sobriquet 'The Austrian March King'.
He is best known for his 1902 march Unter dem Doppeladler or Under the Double Eagle, referring to the double eagle in the coat of arms of Austria-Hungary. The march became a favourite part of the repertoire of American composer and bandleader John Philip Sousa, who recorded it three times. The piece is now the official regimental march of the 1st Austrian Artillery Regiment Number 2.
Wagner's other most popular pieces are the Holzhackerbaum march and the Jolly Lumberjack polka. In 1895, his only opera, Der Herzbub, premiered in Vienna.
