yes i agree 100 %. it is always better to forgive and adove all to be reconciled where possible. however i have reason to believe that there are many members of the family amongst the collateral branches who are quite welcome in Austria, some of which have homes there ( isnt the kaiservilla owned by a descendant of Emperor Franz Joseph) and another branch settled in the village St Gilgen.....etc

i too tend to think, despite of any possiable ill feeling towards the habsburgs, Austria has a lot to grateful towards the Habsburg family, esp the last Emperor Karl. for it is said that his legacy in the long term, may had prevented Austria from becoming a satellite of Soviet Russia after the second world war.......

Yes, the Kaiservilla is owned by Archduke Markus Salvator, the 12th child of Archduke Hubertus Salvator, himself son of Archduchess Maria Valeria, daughter of Franz Josef.

About Austria prevented from becoming a satellite of the USSR, we can't forgot the hard work done by Empress Zita and all his children (in USA, UK, Portugal, Canada, Hungary) during World War II; in particular, Otto and Zita were friends of President Roosevelt and Robert met several times Churchill; their aim was, during and after the war, to help Austria and Hungary to be free and indipendent from the USSR, and possibly again a Monarchy under Otto. They want to create a Danubian Monarcy, with most of the lands of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire.

yes i quite agree with you. it does very much appears that this spanish newspaper (El Mungo) has picked up on an austrian article published some months ago and added their own twist to the story....esp inregards Eleonore's use of her mother's maiden name ! ....

Some time ago I read something about Ulrich Habsburg-Lothringen. He's a Austrian poltician who wanted to become president of Austria but wasn't allowed because he is part of the former ruling family. He wanted to take the case to the court and if I remember correctly even politicians of other partys supported it - does someone know what happend to the case?

Family History Help

I'm doing my family tree and have run into a road block. I was reading a biography written by my great great aunt in it she mentions a crowned prince of Austria that gave up his title and crown to marry a kitchen maid. I'm looking for his name, I have a possible time line of the late 1700s to the early to mid 1800s that he was most likely alive. His great great grandsons name was Frank Pitrof but the family name was once Petrovich. Any help is appreciated.

Habsburg heir takes Austria to human rights court

A descendant of the Habsburgs is taking Austria to the European Court for Human Rights for not allowing him to run for president, his lawyer said Tuesday.Ulrich Habsburg-Lothringen could not become a candidate in April 25 elections because he lacked the required number of signatures and Austrian law bars members of all ruling or former ruling families from running for the largely ceremonial post. - The Associated Press article

Ulrich von Haburg-Lotharingen is a descendant of Grand Duke Fernando IV of Tuscany. But as Ulrich's grandfather married morganatically he is not an archduke but a count of Habsburg-Lotharingen.

It is time to abolish the 'no Hasburg' rule IMHO. It served its purpose as Austria is a stable republic now and any possibility that Austria will become a monarchy is long gone.

The matter is that if they abolished the Habsburg law, then the Austrian government would have to give them back an asset valued someting like 220 million Euro in castles, palaces, lands and woods expropriated in 1919.
I agree that it is time to abolish that law, but personally I don't think the Austrian parliament and government will do in short times, also considering that in recent years, when Archduke Felix and Archduke Carl Ludwig asked for the restitution of the expropriated asset, public opinion didn't react well to their requests.

Cool

You're exactly right MAfan. The public wouldn't be happy to have the government pay restitution in good times, but now, the request by the Habsburg's would not even be taken seriously or discussed. I think the Habsburg Law should be abolished, but the Government isn't going to let it happen because of the resulting consequences.

Habsburgs to the Hofburg

According to Die Presse, the Austrian Constitution will be changed to drop the clause banning members of former ruling Houses from standing for President.

Wahlreform: Habsburger dürfen wieder in die Hofburg « DiePresse.com

This is jolly good news. May it be only the first step in a restoration!

What is the support for restoration like in Austria? Would there be a majority in case of a referendum?

The Margravine of Baden, née Archduchess Valerie of Austria-Tuscany, attended the marriage together with her husband, Margrave Max (himself a nephew of the Duke of Edinburgh).

Otto von Habsburg can be reached by phone at Pöcking/Starnberg, Germany. He's in the phone book.
