Dukes of Hohenberg
Herzöge von Hohenberg
 
The Ducal House of Hohenberg is an Austrian noble family, descended from Countess Sophie Chotek (1868-1914) who in 1900 married Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Este (1863-1914), the heir presumptive to the throne of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. As their marriage was a morganatic one, none of their three children were in the line of succession to the Austro-Hungarian throne. The House of Hohenberg was established by imperial decree of Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria when upon the couple's marriage in 1900, he created Franz Ferdinand's wife Princess of Hohenberg (in German: Fürstin von Hohenberg) in her own right with the style of Serene Highness (in German: Durchlaucht), and the specifiation that this name and title should also be borne by her descendants. In 1909 the Emperor raised Sophie to the more senior title of Duchess of Hohenberg (in German: Herzogin von Hohenberg) with the style Highness (in German: Hoheit) for her life. This title expired upon Sophie's assassination in 1914. 
 
konopiste_castle.jpg
 
 In 1917 the Emperor Karl I of Austria regulated the titles within the Hohenberg family and awarded them a coat of arms. The Head of the House would be titled Duke with the style Highness, the other male members would be titled Prince and female members titled Princess with the style of Serene Highness. Thus Sophie's eldest son Prince Maximilian of Hohenberg became the first Duke of Hohenberg.
 
duchessofhohenbergandchildren.jpg 
 
This title was created to be hereditary among Sophie's and Franz Ferdinand's male descendants according to the rule of primogeniture. Following the collapse of the Monarchy, all Austrian titles of nobility were abolished by law in 1919 and since then their names consist only of a forename and surname, without the "von" or any title. In 1938 several members of the family who were opposed to Adolf Hitler were arrested by the Nazis and sent to Dachau concentration camp, most notably Duke Maximilian and his brother Ernst. They were only released on liberation in 1945. The current Head of the House, Georg Hohenberg, was Ambassador of the Republic of Austria to the Holy See under part of the pontificate of Pope John Paul II. He is also a Knight of the Golden Fleece.
 
archdukeandduchessofaustria.jpg
 
The members of the House of Hohenberg are not only descended from, and married into, the House of Habsburg-Lorraine, but are also through marriage related to many other European dynasties including the Grand Ducal Family of Luxembourg and the Princely House of Liechtenstein, whereas it should be noted that the Ducal House of Hohenberg is not part of the House of Habsburg-Lorraine as it is descended through the created Ducal line of Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg as declared by the Imperial Letters Patent of Emperor Francis Joseph of Austria, and as such any and all Acts, Laws and Decrees created and inforced by the Austrian, German, Polish and Czech Governments to confiscate the Properties, Lands and all other Possessions thereon of the former Ruling House of Habsburg-Lorraine, can not legally apply to the House of Hohenberg, therefore all properties, lands and possessions taken by any of the aforementioned governments from the House of Hohenberg, from the time of the conficaction have if fact and in law remained the sole legal property of the heirs of the House of Hohenberg therein. Please see the following family website: www.sophie-hohenberg-czech-rep.eu
 
Schloss_Aussenaufnahme.jpg 
 
The Hohenberg family has left such a legacy behind that their Castle of Artstetten was selected as a main motive for a very recent commemorative coin: the 10 euro The Castle of Artstetten commemorative coin minted in October 13, 2004. The reverse shows the entrance to the crypt of the Hohenberg family. There are two portraits to the left, showing Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg. Artstetten Castle (German: Schloss Artstetten or Schloß Artstetten) is a castle near the Wachau valley in Lower Austria, in the community of Artstetten-Pöbring. The castle houses the resting place of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg, as well as the Archduke Franz Ferdinand Museum. It remains today the private property of the Hohenberg Family.

 H.I & R.H The Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Este

Franz Ferdinand (18 December 1863 - 28 June 1914) was an Archduke of Austria-Este, Austro-Hungarian and Royal Prince of Hungary and of Bohemia, and from 1889 until his death, heir presumptive to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His assassination in Sarajevo precipitated Austria-Hungary's declaration of war against Serbia. This caused countries allied with Austria-Hungary (the Triple Alliance) and countries allied with Serbia (the Triple Entente Powers) to declare war on each other, starting World War I.

archdukefranz.jpg 

  He was born in Graz, Austria, the oldest son of Archduke Karl Ludwig of Austria (younger brother of Franz Joseph and Maximilian) and of his second wife, Princess Maria Annunciata of Bourbon-Two Sicilies. When he was only twelve years old, his cousin Duke Francis V of Modena died, naming Franz Ferdinand his heir on condition that he add the name Este to his own. Franz Ferdinand thus became one of the wealthiest men in Austria.
 
archdukefranzhunting.jpg 
 
In 1889, Franz Ferdinand's life changed dramatically. His cousin Crown Prince Rudolf committed suicide at his hunting lodge in Mayerling, leaving Franz Ferdinand's father, Archduke Karl Ludwig, as first in line to the throne. However, his father renounced his succession rights a few days after the Crown Prince's death. Henceforth, Franz Ferdinand was groomed to succeed. Despite this burden, he did manage to find time for travel and personal pursuits - for example, the time he spent hunting kangaroos and emus in Australia in 1893, and the return trip to Austria sailing across the Pacific on the RMS Empress of China from Yokohama to Vancouver. 
 
archdukeandduchessofhohenberg.jpg 
 
In 1895 Franz Ferdinand met Countess Sophie Chotek at a ball in Prague. To be an eligible marriage partner for a member of the Imperial House of Habsburg, one had to be a member of one of the reigning or formerly reigning dynasties of Europe. The Choteks were not one of these families, although they were from the highest of Czech Nobility and did include among their ancestors, in the female line, princes of Baden, Hohenzollern-Hechingen, and Liechtenstein. One of Sophie's direct ancestors was Count Albrecht IV of Habsburg; he was descended from Elisabeth of Habsburg, a sister of King Rudolph I of Germany. Franz Ferdinand was a descendant of King Rudolph I. 
 
archdukeFranzSophie.jpg
 
Sophie was a lady-in-waiting to the Archduchess Isabella, wife of Archduke Friedrich, Duke of Teschen. Franz Ferdinand began to visit Archduke Friedrich's villa in Pressburg (now Bratislava). Sophie wrote to Franz Ferdinand during his convalescence from tuberculosis on the island of Lošinj in the Adriatic. They kept their relationship a secret for more than two years. Deeply in love, Franz Ferdinand refused to consider marrying anyone else. Pope Leo XIII, Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, and the German Emperor Wilhelm II all made representations on his behalf to Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria, arguing that the disagreement between Franz Joseph and Franz Ferdinand was undermining the stability of the monarchy, finally, in 1899, Emperor Franz Joseph agreed to permit Franz Ferdinand to marry Sophie, on certain conditions. 
 
 wedding_archdukefranz_sophie.jpg
 
The wedding took place on 1 July 1900, at Reichstadt (now Zákupy) in Bohemia; Franz Joseph did not attend the affair, nor did any archduke including Franz Ferdinand's brothers. The only members of the imperial family who were present were Franz Ferdinand's stepmother, Maria Theresa, and her two daughters. Upon the marriage, Sophie was given the title "Princess of Hohenberg" (Fürstin von Hohenberg) with the style "Her Serene Highness" (Ihre Durchlaucht). In 1909, she was given the more senior title "Duchess of Hohenberg" (Herzogin von Hohenberg) with the style "Her Highness" (Ihre Hoheit). This raised her status considerably, but she still yielded precedence at court to all the archduchesses.

Franz Ferdinand's and Sophie's three children
 
Princess Sophie von Hohenberg (1901-1990), married Count Friedrich von Nostitz-Rieneck (1891-1973), Maximilian, Duke of Hohenberg (1902-1962), married Countess Elisabeth von Waldburg zu Wolfegg und Waldsee (1904-1993), Prince Ernst von Hohenberg (1904-1954), married Marie-Therese Wood (1910-1985)
 
Archduke_Franz_Ferdinand_of_Austria.jpg
 
Archduke Franz Ferdinand was a proponent of granting greater autonomy to all ethnic groups in the Empire and of addressing their grievances, especially the Czechs in Bohemia and the Yugoslavic peoples in Croatia and Bosnia, who had been left out of the Austro-Hungarian compromise of 1867. He also advocated a careful approach towards Serbia - repeatedly locking horns with Franz Conrad von Hötzendorf, Vienna's hard-line Chief of the General Staff, warning that harsh treatment of Serbia would bring Austria-Hungary into open conflict with Russia, to the ruin of both Empires, On Sunday, 28 June 1914, at approximately 1:15 pm, Franz Ferdinand and his beloved wife Sophie were murdered in Sarajevo, the capital of the Austro-Hungarian province of Bosnia and Herzegovina, by the assassin Gavrilo Princip, a member of Young Bosnia and one of a group of assassins organized by the Black Hand, an organization who wished to bring death and destruction to all, which of course they did in the end, purely in the name of a Greater Serbia, ironically Franz Ferdinand was never an enemy of Serbia or its people, furthermore the Archduke would also have created a Kingdom of the Slavs to be part of a future Hapsburg Triple Monarchy, which would have given far more freedoms and rights to the Slavic people. The assassination of Franz Ferdinand led to a chain of events that eventually triggered off World War I, which would kill millions, this day was one of the darkest and saddest moments in European history, as Archduke Franz Ferdinand, would have made a truly wonderful European Monarch who would have brought a voice to the many and peace to all, may Franz Ferdinand and his dearest Sophie rest in peace with the hand of God upon them always.
