|Emperor Karl I||
Without the Crown and The Holy Empire...
HABSBURG FAMILY TODAY
The current Habsburg family consists of the direct descendants of Emperor Karl and Empress Zita.
The eldest son and heir to the dynasty is Karl, who lives in Austria and has served in the Austrian army and now is a member of the European Parliament like his father. He has worked hard to keep the family in the public limelight, even hosting a popular television game show. He works quietly to change the Austrian laws of 1919 that forbid the Habsburgs from holding any political office and has often been mentioned as a possible Chancellor of the Austrian Republic. In 1993 Karl married Francesca Thyssen-Bornemisza who is well known in European high society. They currently have two children.
Gyorgy, in keeping with the old Habsburg tradition of connecting family members to distinct parts of the Empire, lives in Hungary. As with Karl, he has taken a dynamic, public presence and revived the fame of the Habsburg family name. He is an executive for MTM-SBS TV, director of MTM Communications and is a Hungarian special ambassador to lobby for EEU membership for Hungary. He is married to Duchess Eilika von Oldenburg.
