SKuKH Erzherzog Otto, RIP

Today we receive the sad news that His Imperial and Royal Highness Archduke Otto, Crown Prince of Austria-Hungary, passed away this morning.

His Imperial and Royal Highness was in his 99th year, 505 days short of his centennial, born shortly before the outbreak of the Great War.

He will receive an Imperial burial in Vienna on July 16.

Associated Press has more.

Seiner Kaiserliche und Königliche Hoheit Erzherzog Franz Joseph Otto Robert Maria Anton Karl Max Heinrich Sixtus Xavier Felix Renatus Ludwig Gaetan Pius Ignatius, requiescat in pace.

Your humble blogger received this sad news via the host of Radical Royalist.

RIP Otto. BTW, shouldn't that be "...98th year..."

No, sir. His 98th year ended on November 20, 2010, when he turned 98.
