Christmas Customs of the Habsburgs

With Christmas approaching, I was wondering about the Christmas customs of the Habsburg family. Do all of Otto and Regina's children join them at their home in Bavaria? If so, how in the world do they find room for them all!!?

I would like know whether Paola Temesváry (Wife of Archduke István) is the descendant of László Temesváry, right-extremist politician-journalist in then 1930-40's Hungary?

The name of Archduchess Paola's father was indeed Laszlo, but I don't know if he and the politician-journalist in the 1930-40's you refers to are the same person; Paola was born in 1971, and the Journalist-politician should have been at least 60 years old at the time; quite old to be her father, but it's not impossible.

Current Relations Between the Habsburgs and the Austrian Government

On the thread about the death of Archduchess Regina someone said that it was sad that the President of Austria had not (yet) released a statement of condolence. I know that the Austrian Republic has not treated the Habsuburgs very well (it did depose them!), but from hearing of various events over the years where Otto was received at the Hofburg by the Austrian President I assumed that some sort of cordial if not friendly relationship had been established. Is this not correct?

The death of the young Prince Alexis of Windisch-Grätz is covered in the Windisch-Grätz thread in the Italian Royalty forum.

At the requiem in Pöcking there were funeral wreaths from different politicans and officials, like the President of Georgia. (Archduchess Gabriela is now Georgian Ambassador to Germany). But non from Austrian politicians...

No, there is no cordial or friendly relationship.

Till this day, many of the Austrians think, that the Habsburgs were monsters, reigning as dictators, stealing money and possessions from the people. They think, that democracy started in Austria 1918, with the end of the monarchy.

They think: monarchy=dictatorship
republic=democracy

Some socialist politicians almost freak out, when they hear the name.

If a public person, like a school director uses the "von" in the name of the Habsburgs or addresses thema "imperial highness" there could be easily a court case for them....

There all kind of unhistorical rumors about the Habsburgs (emperors) in general and especially about Emperor Charles (womanizer, drunkard, a wimp, ruled by Zita,...), Empress Zita (traitress, italian, enemy, dominated Charles,...), Archduke Otto (right wing politician, antisemite, ...), Archduke Karl (donations fraud, a little bit crazy because of Habsburg-incest,...). MANY people believe these things to be true. It has gotten a little bit better over the last couple years. Some even say the Habsburgs are Nazis.

When Otto was allowed to enter Austria in the 60ies, 250,000 workes demonstrated against him.

All of the above, because history books in schools are full of lies and history teachers also telling them. Many people hate they Habsburgs and aristocracy because of the untrue propaganda of the socialists and communists for decades...

All that is very sad.

But there is also a growing number of monarchists and people who honor the Habsburgs...

Greetings from Austria,
Fr. Christoph +

I've always thought thay this is funny, since Zita the Italian traitress considered herself much more French then Italian; and also Otto once talking about his links to France referred to his mother and her family as French.
This is only because she was born in Italy, her father was the Duke of Parma and because Italy in 1915 entered in the World War I against Austria despite of the Triple Alliance.

Cool

It's interesting how people's feelings and perceptions regarding the Habsburg's are still so negative. It's almost as if they're are still brainwashed from the First World War and it's the twenty-first century. I'm sure that since they were the ruling Monarchy, it was easy to make the family scapegoats for the country's hard times after the War. It's very sad that this family still bears the stigma. Thank you for your interesting information and insights Fr. Christoph.

The same can be found here, in English, minus Archduchess Francesca who doesn't appear to have any relevance to the news report but has been included in the Spanish version for no particular reason:

From the EarthTimes.org

Habsburgs fight for right to run for Austrian president : World

16 September 2009

Members of the former imperial Habsburg family are fighting to win the right to be elected Austrian president, by ending a constitutional ban of such nominations, they confirmed Wednesday. "That is a human rights violation of the worst kind," Ulrich Habsburg-Lothringen told the German Press Agency dpa. The 68-year old agricultural expert and his daughter-in-law have filed their case with the Constitutional Court in early September and hope for a decision before next year's presidential polls.

Austria's constitution states that for presidential elections, "members of ruling families or families that ruled in the past are excluded from being eligible."Habsburg-Lothringen said he was "definitely" interested in running for Austria's head of state, but that he was also working in the interest of other members of his family.

Habsburg-Lothringen serves as a councilman for the Green party in the town of Wolfsberg in Austria's south. He is a third-degree nephew of Otto von Habsburg, the son of the last emperor Charles. The lawyer who represents the two Habsburgs said that the Constitutional Court has the power to strike the words "or families that ruled in the past" from the constitution, if it finds that they conflict with democratic principles.

- - -

Count Ulrich is a descendant of Archduke Heinrich Ferdinand, a son of Ferdinando IV, the last reigning Grand Duke of Tuscany (1835-1908).
The Archduke married morganatically in 1919.

The Habsburgs Want to Command
The <<stepdaughter>> of Tita Cervera heads the efforts to vindicate the clan and bring them again into the public domain. They aspire to the Presidency.


Monica Fokkelman

Vienna

The daughter of the deceased Heini Thyssen, Francesca Thyssen-Bornemisza (51 years old) has brought a breath of fresh air to the Habsburg family. Married - only on paper, some say - to Karl von Habsburg, son of Otto, she has found her niche in Vienna. From her site in the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary Foundation (TBA21), located in a small palace in the heart of the city, which also encompasses the 800 square meters of her residence, Francesca promotes the most vanguard ("rupturist") art and also shoots out proclamations to benefit her in-laws (her family by marriage).

"It's about time that things changed in Austria," the most daring patron in all Central Europe
declared a few days ago. The daughter of the deceased baron was referring to the hostile treatment with which the Habsburgs have been punished for 92 years. A Constitutional Law in effect since 1919 does not allow any member of the Habsburg family to occupy the office of President of the Republic since the last Imperial couple, Karl and Zita, refused to recognize the Republic in 1918. Fed up with so much discrimination, two months before the election Ulrich Habsburg, a member of one of the family's branches and Green Party counselor for Wolfsberg (Carinthia), has insisted on standing for the election. His political bravery has unleashed a national debate.

Since the time that they were banished to Madeira
after the fall of the Austro-Hungarian empire with only the clothes on their backs, Karl, Zita, and their eight children have paid a very high price for that initial disloyalty toward the Republic: exile for life, a vast expropriation of assets, and a total absence of media attention. Even Francesca's daughter Eleonore, who is 15 years old and the goddaughter of the Infanta Pilar, introduces herself in society as a Thyssen, so as not to use the disgraced last name (of Habsburg). As the Habsburgs' battle continues, Francesca already dons one of the highest decorations in the country - the Gold Medal of the City of Vienna - a distinction that none of the Habsburgs can imagine.

P.S. Warren: the Spanish and English articles, while on the same subject, are actually quite different. And it does seem like Chessy has been making some statements on her own.
