Biography

Carl (or Karl) Franz Joseph Ludwig Hubert Georg Otto Maria, Erzherzog von Österreich-Este (Archduke of Austria-Este) was born 17 August 1887 at Schloss Persenbeug, in Lower Austria, the eldest of the two sons of Otto Franz Joseph Karl Ludwig Maria, Erzherzog von Österreich of the house of Habsburg-Lothringen (Habsburg-Lorraine) and his wife, Maria Josepha, Prinzessin von Sachsen (Princess of Saxony).[1]

Heir to throne

At his birth Carl seemed to be destined to the life of a younger member of the House of Habsburg-Lorraine, his paternal grandfather Karl Ludwig, being a younger brother of Franz Joseph I, the Emperor of Austria.

However the death of Franz Joseph's only son Rudolf in 1889, followed by Karl Ludwig in 1896,[1] placed Carl's uncle Franz Ferdinand as the next heir. Franz Ferdinand's decision to undertake what was considered a morganatic marriage and renounce for his children and descendants any dynastic rights or privileges on 28 June 1900[2] meant that Carl moved one step closer to the throne.

The death of Carl's father, Otto, on 1 November 1906 and the assassination of his uncle Franz Ferdinand at Sarajevo on 28 June 1914[1]; [2] now placed Carl as heir to his great uncle Franz Joseph, and he succeeded him as Emperor of Austria, Apostolic King of Hungary and King of Bohemia on 21 November 1916.[2]

family, Kaiser 1 November 21, 1916, Abdicated November 09,1918.[citation needed]
