Today I went along with Frau Westphal and the entire German class at Marian to go meet Archduke Markus Salvator von Habsburg-Lothringen and Archduchess Hildegarde Habsburg-Lothringen. He is descended from Emperor Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary. They were visiting Indianapolis and then going to Ferdinand, named after his ancestor,in southern Indiana. It was pretty cool getting to meet them and shake their hands. They were very nice and Markus gave a little talk about himself and his family and home. Needless to say it is something I won’t forget and not everyone gets to say they got to meet royalty, let alone royalty from one of the most powerful royal families in the world.
