    Very sad. Will there be any further internments of Habsburgs (especially Archduke Otto) into the Kapuzinergruft?

  2. MAfan says:

    Yes; in the Kapuzinergruft three more Archdukes can be buried, and with all probabilities they will be Archduke Otto and Archduchess Regina (as reported when ADss Regina died last February) and Archduchess Yolande (AD Carl Ludwig’s widow; he was buried there at his death in December 2007).
