Born in a merchant family in Spit, he grew into a large family along with his brothers and sisters. In 1863, Gizdan and his older brother Velimir joined the volunteers for the Chilean-Patagonian War sent by Austria to help. His brother was then made Count of Gualeguay, btu died childless in 1869, leaving all his titles to Gizdan.
Gizdan rose into the military under Marshal Vincent Montessier. The later became too sick to keep his office in late 1877, which lead the King to appoint Gizdan the new Marshal. Gizdan proved to be more moderate than his predecessor, which helped in his relation with the Mapuches, who never liked Montessier.
