Archduke Rudolf of Austria (1950-) and Family

I'm looking for information on Archduke Rudolf of Austria, born 1950, son of Archduke Carl Ludwig and grandson of Emperor Charles I. I believe he presently lives in Belgium and is an avid hunter. He might be coming to visit me and I would like to know more about him and any protocol I might need to know. Thank you in advance.

His wife Hélène is, among many others, descendant of Rubens, the famous painter.

Priscilla is the odd name, especially when her sister has such a beautiful traditional name (Marie-des-Neiges).

What do you mean by German surnames?

Their official "surname" is Habsburg-Lothringen if I am not mistaken which is, of course, German...

St. Priscilla was a martyr from 1st century Rome. Not older than Mary or snow (Neiges) perhaps, but certainly not a new name. The wife of emperor Dioclatian was also a Prisc(ill)a. And there is of course a legendary Queen of the desert with that name .

Never too old to learn. I have never heard about a Saint Priscilla. I will look to the Saints' Calendar and see if I can find information. Thanks.

Found it: there is a Basilica di Santa Prisca in Rome. Priscilla is a diminutive of Prisca.

Archduke Rudolf is the godfather of Countess Guillaume de Dampierre, nee Princess Alix de Ligne. He's a first cousin of the Countess' father, Michel, 14th Prince de Ligne. Her godmother is Princess Isabel of Brazil, her maternal aunt.

Are they incorporated in the Belgian nobility as prince von Habsburg-Lotharingen or de Habsbourg-Lorraine? I suspect the latter. The first names of the sons are German sounding indeed, though among the baptism names there are more French sounding ones too.

Maybe they had an "agreement" that first names of the boys will be chosen by father and first names of the girls by mother.

Just a guess
