RIP to HI & RH Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, murdered this day in 1914,

and to the THIRTY SEVEN MILLION [let that sink in a moment] who were killed in the senseless World War that followed their death, beginning the bloodiest century in world history .

Very interesting to see them all, including the old Emperor, away from horseback and military parades, and his daughter Sophie. Zita, the bride, was so pretty.

The video mistakenly says that the duchess of Hohenberg is standing besides the emperor. But I believe that that is the Archduchess Maria Josepha, mother of the groom.

You're correct. The video made an error.

In this video I was able to learn that the touring car that transported Franz Ferdinand and Duchess Sophie was borrowed. I had thought that it was one of the imperial touring cars made in Austria.

My heart goes to Duchess Sophie. Such a formidable woman. The Duchess and her husband's 105th death anniversary will be in 3 days time.

Do you believe that the etiquette of the Imperial Austrian Court was too severe and strict that it did not treat Sophie the same as an Archduchess?

Duke Georg Friedrich of Hohenberg died this month.

The duke's passing was announced by his youngest son.

Georg Friedrich (1929-2019) was a grandson of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and Duchess Sophie of Hohenberg via their eldest son Maximilian.
