     Aulic council (Hist.), a supreme court of the old German
        empire; properly the supreme court of the emperor. It
        ceased at the death of each emperor, and was renewed by
        his successor. It became extinct when the German empire
        was dissolved, in 1806. The term is now applied to a
        council of the war department of the Austrian empire, and
        the members of different provincial chanceries of that
        empire are called aulic councilors. --P. Cyc.
        [1913 Webster]
