It is a FACT (not a claim) that Franz is the senior co-heir general of King Charles I of England, France, Scotland, and Ireland. By English common law, the throne passes to him.
The claim of "Elizabeth Windsor" rests purely on purported statutory law (the so-called "Act of Settlement", 1701). This piece of "legislation" was passed by a "parliament" which had been summoned by a Dutch prince who was merely son-in-law and nephew to the reigning king James II and VII. Dutch princes don't actually have the right to summon parliament nor to give royal assent to English parliamentary legislation.
Neither Franz nor his adherents need to make any claims for him. He is who he is. His adherents merely recognise the truth of this matter.
The adherents of "Elizabeth Windsor" on the other hand continue to support an attempt to exclude all Catholics from the English crown. That was reprehensible in 1689 and in 1701. In 2020, it is surprising how many people are willing to continue to support such hatred.
Imagine if the "Act of Settlement" had said "provided that every black person should be excluded" from the throne. It is extraordinary that the "Succession to the Crown Act 2013" continues this hatred of Catholics. Where exactly are the reparations to the senior co-heir general of Charles I?!
