Austro-Hungarian Dissolution

Château de Saint-Germain-en-LayeA dozen years short of a century ago today, the Treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye was signed at the Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye.

The great and late Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn remarked that having the Treaty of Versailles signed on the 5th anniversary of the Sarajevo assassination was distasteful. One might say that it also was distasteful to have the Treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye signed on the 21st anniversary of the assassination of the consort of Franz Josef I of Austria-Hungary.
