HI&RH Archduke Lorenz of Austria-Este and the Heirs of the Duchy of Modena

It is interesting HIRH Archduke Amedeo of Habsburg, Heir to the titular Este Duchy of Modena, gets married in Rome and not in Modena:

But wasn't Rome chosen because of Elisabetta's ties with the city? It is traditional that the wedding takes place in the bride place, though of course the couple can agree on another place.

Cory, could you explain why AD Lorenz, as a 2nd son, became heir of the duchy of Modena?

After 1875 the title passed to Archduke Franz Ferdinand. Archduke Robert had than the title (and than his son) because the first brother had to inherit the austrian Throne.

More precisely, Duke Francesco V of Modena in his last will appointed as his heir Archduke Franz Ferdinand, under condition that he assumed the surname of Austria-Este (and not of Habsburg-Este, as it is often reported). In case Franz Ferdinand predeceased Duke Francesco or in case he wouldn't accept the condition, the heir would be the next younger brother of Franz Ferdinand, under the same condition (and in case any of the sons of Archduke Karl Ludwig couldn't inherit, the heir of Duke Francesco would be in equal shares his nephews Don Carlos and Don Alfonso de Borbon).

In 1875 Duke Francesco died and Archduke Franz Ferdinand became his heir, and therefore assumed the title of Archduke of Austria-Este. In 1900 he married morganatically, so his descendants were inegible to inherit his titles. So his heir presumptive became his brother Otto. Otto died in 1906 and then the heir presumptive became his son Karl.

In 1907 in his will Archduke Franz Ferdinand appointed Karl as the heir to the Modena inheritance, under the condition that he assumed the surname of Austria-Este.

After the death of Franz Ferdinand in 1914, Karl therefore assumed the name and the arms of the House of Este and became Archduke of Austria-Este.

He also became Emperor in 1916. So in 1917 he decided to transfer the title and rights on the Este inheritance to his second son Robert (and not to the eldest son Otto, because Otto was the heir to the Imperial throne), and in turn Roberto assumed the title of Archduke of Austria-Este. The same title is currently used by his children and male line descendants.

Thanks MAfan,
The only one to-day who wears officially the tittle is Archduke Martin of Austria-Este (thanks for correcting), as Prince Lorenz wears the title of Prince of Belgium.

The title is indeed Archduke (Archduchess) of Austria-Este. The confusion is there because Austria does not accept "Austria(-Este)" as surname and consequently speaks about "Habsburg-Este" which is not correct. The title "Archiduc (Archiduchesse) d'Austria-Este" or "Aartshertog (Aartshertogin) van Oostenrijk-Este" or "Erzherzog (Erzherzogin) von Österreich-Este" is officially registered and used in Belgium.

HIRH Archduke Lorenz has never given up to his titles linked with the Modena inheritance even if he is also Prince of Belgium.

You should ask the question to who has appointed him as a member of the Romanian Royal Council.

On Royal Musings Marlène K. published the document with the 5 signatures of the Romanian Royal Concil.
The first was Lorenz of Austria-Este.

He is not involved and Prince of Belgium .

Only the title Archduke of Austria-Este is incorporated in the offcial registry in Belgium. No mention of any other title like Duke of Modena, see link. It is the same with the De Bourbon de Parme incorporation in the official registry in the Netherlands: also there no mention of any other title like Duke of Parma.

I suppose that would be really difficult.

Of those listed: Anneli is a romanian historian/journalist/political scientist, Vlad and Vasiliu are lawyers, pochelon, popper, and lorenz are bankers. Lorenz is likely involved as a financial advisor/estate manager, not as a prince. Being a prince may have made him a more desirable as a financial advisor due to the nature of the estate.

You are right, Archduke Lorenz is the only Royal who has a job among his Generation of Princes in Belgium.
He certainly is a good financial estate/advisor for the Romanian Royal Family.

Since his wedding 1986 no faux pas ! Well done!!
