November 20

Today is not only the 62nd wedding anniversary of HM Queen Elizabeth II and HRH the Duke of Edinburgh, but also the 97th birthday of HI&RH Archduke Otto of Austria-Hungary, son and heir of Emperor Bl Charles I, who if there were any justice in modern Europe would be internationally recognized as Emperor of Austria and King of Hungary. This is a particularly significant birthday for AD Otto because it means he has reached a higher age than even his mother Empress Zita (9 May 1892 - 14 Mar 1989) did.

Other blogs saluting Europe's uncrowned emperor include Wilson Revolution Unplugged, Ad Orientem, A Conservative Blog for Peace, and The Mad Monarchist.

God Save the Queen and God Bless her Consort! Gott erhalte Otto den Kaiser!
