Our condolances to family and friends. HIRH Otto von Habsburg was a wonderful, charming, and intelligent man. His search for the unity of mankind, with his great and kind heart, is beyond compare. He will be sorely missed and the world be the lesser without him. His legacy will live on.

I'm not sad for him for the man lived a long and eventful life, and that's something which should be celebrated. Death is merely the next phase and beckons us all at some time or another. Thankfully, Otto lived to be an old man who had the pleasure of seeing his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren grow. And who spent much of his life with his wife by his side, only to be parted for a short while. All in all, he was dealt a good hand and I'm sure he knew it

He certainly left Europe and the world a better place, and he is and will be missed.

Very sad to hear this. The Archduke was a great man, great ideas about great subjects, yet also someone who was very approachable and took time to answer every letter and talk to every person who wanted his attention. He true prince and a true gentleman, completely worthy of the best traditions of the House of Hapsburg. I recall reading once that he could remember (vaguely) the outbreak of the Great War. It seems the last link with that old Europe was lost today. My condolences to his family and may His Imperial Royal Highness rest in peace.

This is a great saddness! The first- born of Emperor Karl and Empress Zita has died. They are a long- lived family and the Archduke had a long, full life that his family and Europe should be grateful for. Rest in Peace.

Read his bio in Wikipedia. Very interesting life he had. Didn't really know that much about him. Very sad to hear of his death and passing. I wonder if anyone has written a book about his life as from what read about him was very interesting. He lived a full life.

Truly the end of an era. Perhaps one of the last (if not the only remaining) royals to become heir before the end of World War I. A remarkable life.

An obituary in the New York Times. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/05/wo....html?src=recg

It's a bit thin for a man who accomplished much in his blessedly long life.

Indeed It Is sad to hear of the passing of Archduke Otto, our condolences to his family.

Because he will lie in repose at the Kapuzinerkirche, Wien.
I'm assuming his family thinks he will be laid to rest In the Kapuzinerkirche, will he be laid to rest there?
