His wife ,the Empress Elizabeth ("Sissi") was stabbed to death by an Italian
anarchist in 1898. His son Rudolph died ??suicide because of a love
tangle.....and finally,the Archduke Ferdinand who was killed in Sarajevo
together with his wife Sophie was the heir to the throne. Cornel

Hardy and Cornel:

So sad. Poor Franz-Josef. What an unfortunate existence for that
benevolent ruler so beloved by his people. In that case,, why did his son
kill himself and why was Franz Josef's wife slain?
Incidentally, was the emperor's appointed heir Ferdinand the same archduke
Ferdinand whose assassination -- according to. historians -- triggered
World War I ?
