Death of HI&RH Archduke Felix (1916 - 6 September 2011)



Death of HI&RH Archduke Felix (1916-2011)

HI&RH Archduke Felix of Austria, Prince of Hungary and Bohemia, the fourth child of Emperor Karl and Empress Zita, died yesterday evening in Mexico, aged 95.
After the death of his brother Otto in July, he was the last surviving child of the Emperor and the Empress.

He married in 1952 to Princess and Duchess Anna Eugenie of Arenberg, with whom had three sons and four daughters. Archduchess Anna Eugenie died in 1997, and one of their sons, Raimund, predeceased his father in 2008.

How awful, and so soon after Otto. May he rest in peace.

And then there was none... So sad to think no one from that generation is left, an era has passed

The Archduke was already too weak to travel to his brothers funeral in July. Where in Mexico did he live*? And do any of his children live there too? He seems to have been the most low-key of the 5 brothers (perhaps because he didn't live in Europe he attended less family events), as are his children.

I wonder where he will be burried. i believe there is only 1 spot left in the Imperial Crypt, which is reserved for ADss Karl-Ludwig AFAIK. Where has Archduchess Anna Eugenie been burried?

Does anybody know how his son AD Raimund died? An illnes or an accident? He must have been fairly young.

* Edit: according to wikipedia he lived in thearea of San Ángel in Mexico City.

His daughter Miriam is married to an mexican Jaime Cercuerra Acherson and i believe the also live in Mexico. Archduke Felix also was to weak to attend the funerals of Ardchduchess Regina and Archduke Rudolf last year. I think the last Family occasion he attended in Europe was the funeral of his brother Carl Ludwig.
Archduchess Anna Eugenie is buried at Kloster Muri in Switzerlands where are also Archduke Robert and Archduke Rudolf are buried. So i guess Archduke Felix will also be buried there.

Sad news! It will be interesting to learn where the late Archduke will be buried, though.

May he rest in peace.

Yes I think Kloster Muri is a good guess for Felix' burial. Only yesterday I read that in the future the Habsburgs will be buried there again. Zita's and Karl's hearts are already there and the Habsburgs have a long and very strong traditional relationship with Muri.

The cause of beatification was opened in December 2009.

I am a bit puzzled concerning the grandchildren of the late Emperor Charles of Austria.
I am thinking about Archduke Simeon who married a Princess of Bourbon Siciles, and another Archduke who marries a Princess of Wrede. Who was their father ?
Thanks for answer

Archduke Simeon married Maria Paloma Diana Irene: her father is Carlos Maria Alfonso Marcel, Duke of Calabria (b.1938)

Two Sicilies

Archduke Karl Peter married Alexandra Elisabeth Sophie Maria Caspara: her father is Carl Friedrich Oskar Melchior, Furst von Wrede (b.1942)

Wrede

Both Archdukes are sons of Archduke Rudolph.

The funeral is the first occasion where Archduke Karl can appear in his new position as the senior member of his house. I'm curious how he will go about it for this will tell if the glorious times of the family have really died with his father or not.

Well, it was not just the case that he was already to weak to travel to Otto's funeral, AD Felix didn't have the permission to enter Austria. He never gave up his claim to the Austrian throne. By the way it was the same case with a second brother of AD Otto, I think it was AD Carl Ludwig as far as I recall ......
