Otto von Habsburg, RIP

July 06, 2011

John Zmirak bids farewell to Otto von Habsburg--son of Blessed Karl, the last of the Habsburg emperors--and wonders how the ugly history of 20th century Europe might have been altered if that empire had continued.

In the Wall Street Journal, Seth Lipsky recounts his own experiences meeting the man who might have been the Holy Roman Emperor.

Otto von Habsburg, who fought against both fascism and Communism, and emerged in his own right as an important leader in the European parliament, died on July 4 at the age of 98.
