Archduke Felix of Austria (1916-2011)
His Imperial & Royal Highness Archduke Felix of Austria & Hungary, the last surviving child of Emperor Bl Karl and Empress Zita, died yesterday in Mexico at the age of 95, about two months after his elder brother Otto. The generation of Habsburgs born when their family still reigned is now gone. Shame on modern Europe for failing to restore them to their rightful place. Archduke Felix, to his credit, never renounced his rights to the throne and so was once threatened with arrest by the criminal enterprise that calls itself the Austrian Republic for the "crime" of visiting his own country. May he rest in peace.
