Re: Blessed Karl of Austria
User logged in as Eric VdV
I am not sure if I am fully correct, but I remember from the time of the funeral of Empress Zita in April 1989 (I was in Vienna for the funeral), talks were going on that Emperor Karl would be brought too to the Kapuzinergruft. The coffin of Empress Zita stood there for a long period on the ground in one of the chapels of the Kapuzinergruft.
Later one, it was assumed Emperor Karl would stay in Madeira, being blessed by then and a reason for pelgrimage.
Is there any plan to return the remains of the last Kaiser "Blessed" Karl to Vienna for burial in the Habsburg crypt? His wife, the Empress Zita, is buried there.
