Walburga Countess Douglas surely has a mail adress on her entry at the webpage of the Swedish parliament.

Andrea Countess Neipperg can be reached via the webpage of her husband's winery "Weingut Graf Neipperg" in Schwaigern/Wuerttemberg.

Surely Archdukes Karl and Georg have webpages, too.

Sorry ,I have a question as far as I have very poor knowledge in the matter of Austrian history,was he a descendant of Empress Sissi?

ANNIE_S 07-04-2011 08:44 AM

Rest in Peace.:sad:
Like fandesacs, I admired him a lot. He was a symbol, and his death is the end of an era, indeed.

Ottos grand-grand-grandmother (did I counted right?) was Archduchess Sophie, Sisis aunt. But Otto is not in Sisis direct bloodline.

I'm really sad for him. It's the end of an era too. Rest in peace.

Only one Child of Empress Zita and Emperor Charles of Austria is still alive : Archduke Felix.
HR& IH Archduke Otto lives nearly one Century ; he assisted his Parents Coronation , the Exile in Madeira , The Emperor's death, and his Mother best support for years.
I really hope he will be buried in Vienna where all the Habsbourg are and hope that his late wife Archduchess Regina will have their place there too.

Hi,

Very sad news indeed...

I also hoped he would live till 100 years; but thankfully, he died in his sleep and I hope did not suffer near the end.

He was a credit to his parents, to Austria and to Europe...

R.I.P. Otto
