Hello. I have always admired Archiduc Otto. Has anyone any news about him? He disappeared lately. Of course he had two sad losses in his life the last months, his wife and his brother.
Is he in bad condition??

Thanks

Archduchess Regina was a member of the House of Saxe-Meiningen. I thought all the Saxon duchy dynasties were Protestant (with the Royal Saxons being Catholic). Was Regina born Catholic or did she convert upon marriage? I note that she had a brother who became a monk so I assume the family was Catholic?

Her father was protestant and her mother catholic. The children have been raised catholic.

I heard that he was in quite a bad condition and also too ill to attend his wife's funeral. It was widely expected that he would die before her.

Otto would celebrate his 100th birthday today. He was born on 20th November 1912. A mass was held this weekend because of it with several family members attending and visiting the Kapuzinergruft where his eldest son Karl laid down a bouquet. ORF showed a documentary about AD Otto today maybe it will also be possible to watch it online.
