First of April in 1922

The funeral of Blessed Charles in Monte, Madeira
89 years ago today, Blessed Charles of Austria-Hungary passed from this world on the island of Madeira.

And yes, his demise – and the rise of modern democratic republicanism and of democratism that goes with it – would be a joke fit for this day, were it not so sad.
