91 Years Ago...

Today is the sad anniversary of the passing of Emperor-King Charles of Austria-Hungary.

It is also a time to reflect, as it is a long time ago the old order passed from daily life. Seven baker's dozen years have passed since this black day in Madeira. It is almost two years since Crown Prince Otto had his final journey in Vienna. The future does not look bright. We must realize that the old order is gone forever.

Also, this weblog has had reduced activity lately, and for a quite long period, the more lengthy, deep posts or articles have been few or non-existant.

This 91st anniversary of that fateful day in Madeira is a fitting occasion to call it quits.

It was fun while it lasted...

I am sorry to hear that you intend to stop operating WRU, sir.

I hope you'll leave the site up; at the very least, everyone can benefit from your old articles and your extensive blogroll.

Will we still see you at The Monarchist?

Never mind.

You have the unique honor of being the only one today to have fooled me.
