You do raise a good point. I’m not disagreeing with what you’ve said, I just think it raises some issues.
Genealogically speaking after the Death of Emperor Charles VI the Habsburg Dynasty became extinct and the descendants of Franz of Lorraine and Maria Theresa were of the House of Lorraine.
This is similar to how the House of Romanov is in reality extinct.
Shouldn’t the fact that they hyphenated Habsburg and Lorraine officially also be taken in consideration?
It could be argued that Franz I, Holy Roman Emperor was the only Emperor of the House of Lorraine. It was is sons that were of the House of Habsburg-Lorraine from the marriage of Franz with the Habsburg heiress María Theresa of Habsburg, Queen of Hungry, Bohemia and Archduchess of Austria.
I’d disagree with you there. The Habsburg-Lorraines are Lorraines; just as the Glücksburg are Oldenburgs and the Orléans are Bourbons.
