Austria: Archduke Karl Talks to The Guardian

Archduke Karl, Head of House Austria, was interviewed by London's The Guardian.

Although he was identified as a descendant of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Karl, of course, does not descend from the Habsburg-Hohenberg marriage. In fact, it was because of the morganatic union between Archduke Franz Ferdinand and Countess Sophie Choteck, the the line of Archduke Otto, Franz Ferdinand's next younger brother, succeeded to the Austro-Hungarian throne in 1916. is an interesting interview nonetheless...
