HOLLEBEN, hṓl'lắben, Theodor von (1838—). A German diplomat. He was born in Stettin, and in 1872 left the Hussars for the diplomatic service. He was Minister to Argentina (1875-85). Envoy to Japan (1885-91), to Washington (1891-93), to Stuttgart (1893-97); and then again to Washington, where he received the rank of Ambassador.
