A Solemn Farewell...

Archduke Rodolph of Austria died on 15 May 2010. He was the son of the last Emperor and Empress of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. On 29 May 2010 a funeral mass was held at L' église Notre-Dame du Sablon in Brussels, Belgium.

Many members of the Grand-Ducal Family attended the service. I noted The Grand-Ducal Couple, Prince Guillaume, Prince Jean and his wife, Princess Margaretha and her husband Prince Nikolaus of Liechtenstein. Princess Marie-Astrid and her husband Archduke Carl-Christian were accompanied by their daughter Archduchess Marie-Christine and her husband Count Rodolphe.

I admire the Habsburg family. Archduke Rodolph enjoyed a long and full life. His passing is unfortunate and we express our sympathy to his family.

  1. Archduke Rodolph's daughter Maria Anna is the godmother of Princess Alexandra of Luxembourg. Maria Anna lived in Luxembourg for several years with her husband and children.
