From our blog:

Archduchess Regina Passed Away


Archduchess Regina of Austria, wife of the head of the Austrian imperial family, Archduke Otto, has died this morning in the family house in Pöcking near the Lake Starnberg in Bavaria, Germany. The 85 year old archduchess died peacefully at 08.40 AM, with several members of the family present, according to a spokesperson of the family.

Her eldest son, archduke Karl comments: ‘My mother was an example to all of us, with her we lose a great personality, who has formed us with her steadfast faith and her positive approach to life’. The archduchess has been suffering for quite some time with heart troubles.

The archduchess was born as princess Regina Helene Elizabeth Margarete of Saxe-Meiningen on January 6th 1925 in Würzburg, Germany as the the youngest of the four children born from the marriage of prince Georg of Saxe-Meiningen (head of the ducal house of Saxe-Meinignen) and countess Klara Maria von Korff genannt Schmissing-Kerssenbrock. On 10 May 1951 Regina married Otto, Crown Prince of Austria, eldest son of Austria’s last emperor Karl, and his wife Empress Zita (née princess of Bourbon-Parma). The cpouple married in the Church of the Cordeliers in Nancy, France, with the blessing of Pope Pius XII.

Since 10 May 1954 Regina and Otto have lived at his official residence in the Villa Austria, also called the “Kaiservilla” (Emperor’s Villa) or with a wink to the English royal family ‘Pöckingham Palace’, in Pöcking near Lake Starnberg in Bavaria, Germany. Here the couple got five daughters and two sons:

Archduchess Andrea (1953), married Karl Eugen, hereditary count of Neipperg.
Archduchess Monika (1954), married Luis Gonzaga de Casanova-Cárdenas y Barón, duke of Santangelo, marquess of Elche, count of Lodosa and grandee of Spain.
Archduchess Michaela (1954), married 1stly to Eric Alba Teran d’Antin (divorced) and 2ndly to Count Hubertus of Kageneck (divorced).
Archduchess Gabriela (1956), married Christian Meister (divorced).
Archduchess Walburga (1958), married count Archibald Douglas.
Archduke Karl (1961), married baroness Francesca Thyssen-Bornemisza.
Archduke Georg (1964), married duchess Eilika of Oldenburg.

On 2 December 2005 she suffered a brain injury and was taken to a hospital of Nancy. Nevertheless, by 22 February 2006 she had recovered sufficiently to participate in the transfer of the remains of her mother Duchess Klara and her older brother Anton Ulrich to the vault of the Veste Heldburg in the Churchyard of Heldburg in the district of Hildburghausen. The transfer of the remains of her father duke Georg III from Tscherepowez (Russia), where he died as a Russian prisoner of war in 1946, took place in the spring of 2007. The archduchess got 22 grandchildren. The last time she was seen in public was while she attended the wedding of her eldest grand child, count Philipp of Neipperg to Paula Wolff in Salzburg on April 26th 2008.
No details about the funeral of the Archduchess have been released yet, but it is likely that like her late brother-in-law, Archduke Karl Ludwig, she will laid to rest in the Kapuzinergruft, after a requiem in the Stephansdom in Vienna.

A heatfelt condolence to the House Of Hapsburg. You have lost a light in this world, however another now graces the other. My Sympathies go out also first and foremost to Archduke Otto himself.

This is a great loss for the whole Imperial Family, and most of all for Archduke Otto; I'm sure she's resting in peace.
My deepest condolences to Archduke Otto and the Imperial Family.
Farewell your Majesty!

Funeral and burial arrangements

From next Saturday February 6th until Monday February 8th the late Archduchess will be lying in state in Sankt Ulrich in Pöcking.
On Tuesday February 9th a Memorial Mass will be held by Bishop Mixa in Pöcking and on Wednesday February 10th the late Archduchess will be buried at the cemetery in Heldburg (County Hildburghausen Thüringen).

I expect a lot a of guests from the European Gotha will attend the Memorial Mass on Tuesday and that the burial on Wednesday will be a more private family event

As has been commented on another forum, after the loss of one of a couple of this age and who have been married for long, it is often the case that the other partner goes not long after. As he is in his late 90s it is quite possible that we may soon lose Archduke Otto. I hope that this doesan't happen for several more years yet but it shouldn't be unexpected. When that does happen we will have lost a valuable living treasure of a man, our last living connection to the golden age of royalty pre world war one and the last of the heirs. (unless someone knows of another prince/princess born before the war and is still alive?). May the archduchess rest in peace and my blessings to all her family.
