Archduke Rudolf died yesterday, 15 may; he is survived by his secodn wife, Archduchess Anna Gabriele, and by four of his 5 children. Here is a blog entry on him, on occasion of his 90th birthday last September.
My condolences to his family.

Archiduke Rudolf (91) passed away

Archiduke Rudolf , Charles and Zita 's youngest son, died yesterday.
Two of his elder brothers are still alive , Otto and Felix.
He was living in Brussels and I often saw him on important events.
His last wish and he did all what he could , is that his mother the late Empress Zita should be blessed such as her husband.
I wonder if he will be burried also in Vienna as his brother Carl-Ludwig a few years ago.
I wish to the Archiduchess Rudolf , Princess of Wrede, his second wife my condoleances. She did a lot for him in his old days

He was 90, not 91, he was born 5 September 1919.

Very sad news.

His first wife, Archduchess Xenia, and his late son Archduke Johannes are both buried in Muri, Switzerland (where are also buried Archduke Robert and Archduchess Anna-Eugenie, as well as the hearts of Emperor Karl I and Empress Zita); I guess Archduke Rudolph will also be buried there.
Any news on the funeral?

It must indeed be difficult. I hope Archduke Otto manages through these tragedies. He is certainly the kindest and I hope he stays strong and resolute also. Our prayers go out to the family.

Archduke Rudolph's (which is how he spelled his name) does not qualify as a tragic. He was 90 years old - he died naturally. That does not qualify as a tragedy.

I quite agree, MarleneKoenig. Archduke Rudolph had a long life and he has reached a 'good age', though it is still sad. May he rest in peace.

Thanks Stephanievl,
Grand-Duke Henri , Prince Lorenz and Archiduke Carl-Christian are wearing the ordre de la Toison d'or (Golden Vlies ??) Excuse my bad english.
In Belgium , they are only 3 families belonging to the Order
The Prince de Ligne did not wear it but his late father was one of the 3 .
