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 ?

Rest in peace, you Franz of Joseph .
Of the Habsburg Austrian branch.
Benefactor Judeorum Bukowina et Galizia.
He slept on a wooden no mattresses bed.
Because he suffered of lumbago pain .
His wife was slain his only son shot himself.
His appointed heir Ferdinand was shot.
He died in 1916 while Austria was still victorious.
But the future was evident : Defeat and collapse.
But he has many fans who remember and respect him.
My mother hearing the Franzjoseph name ,her eyes went mellow.
Here is the Imperial anthem "Gott erhalte ".
