A recording of the Emperor (if I understand the caption, when he was still an archduke):



The wedding of Karl and Zita:



(My favorite moment is 2:19 when Franz Ferdinand reaches to take some flowers from Franz Joseph, and right after that scene is good footage of the bridal couple.)

For those who undertand German, the interview of the Empress with the ORF from the early 80-ties has recently been uploaded to youtube:



She talks about her early life, AD Franz-Ferdinand, WWI, peace negotions, coronation in Hungary, excile, death of her husband, etc. etc. A very interesting document!

And a documentary about the Empress:

wow thanks Marengo. I have already seen this interview once on ORF in 1989 when I was seven years old. It was aired because of her death and I remember being totally fascinated by her. My great-grandfather once met her where she gave him the hand and until his death he was so proud of this little gesture of hers. Seeing the interview again I can finally understand him better. She really was an exceptional woman.

Yes, here are several historical details and views of the church: Saint Mary Mother of God - Home

... as well as information about the shrine's dedication - although the parish would do well to learn to spell correctly the Archduke's first and family names! Not surprisingly, it will be a High Mass in the Tridentine (pre-1962 Latin) rite, which will be celebrated tomorrow, September 2nd, at 9am. Apparently Imre will offer a "first-class relic" (I didn't know that relics were graded by quality!) of his great-grandfather as a gift to the church:

Among the children of Emperor Karl I were the Archduke Karl Ludwig, the Archduke Rudolf, and the Archduchess Elisabeth. Was the Archduke Karl Ludwig named after his paternal great-grandfather, the Archduke Karl Ludwig, the brother of Emperor Franz Joseph I? Was the Archduke Rudolf named after the Crown Prince Rudolf? Was the Archduchess Elisabeth named after the Empress Elisabeth of Austria?

Yes Carl Ludwig and Elisabeth were named after Franz Joseph's brother and Empress Elisabeth. Not sure about Rudolf but as far as I recall he was named after the founder of the dynasty: King Rudolph I.

Yes, Archduke Rudolph was indeed named after the founder of the dinasty, who was Count Rudolph IV von Habsburg, who in 1273 was elected King of the Romans and in 1286 became the first Duke of Austria.

Here is a list of nearly all the shrines and relics of Emperor Karl:
Emperor Charles

If I don't mistake, in a few days the Basilique de Saint-Epvre in Nancy (the church where Archduke Christoph and Archduchess Adelaide married last year) will also receive a relics of the Emperor, after a Mass attended by Archdukes Carl Christian, Marie Astrid, Christoph and Adelaide.

Sorry MAfan but Rudolph became Duke of Austria and Styria in 1278 after the battle of Drnkrut in which he defeated King Ottokar of Bohemia. He was Duke until 1282 when he gave Austria and Styria as well as Krain to his sons Albrecht and Rudolf. In 1276 he already became Duke of Carinthia and Krain and held the position until 1286. Then he gave Carinthia to his son-in-law Meinhardt of Gtz. But the first Duke of Austria was Heinrich II. Jasomirgott from the House of Babenberg. He ruled since 1141 over Austria and became Duke in 1156. Before that Austria was a so-called Markgrafschaft.

Yes, of course, you're perfectly right. I have mixed up some dates. Thanks for the corrections.
Btw by saying that he became the first Duke of Austria I meant that he was the first Habsburg Duke of Austria. I have written that quite imprecisely.

Ah okay. I have already assumed you meant to write the first Habsburg who was Duke of Austria. 😄
