I would also be very interested in seeing the rest of the family, but to find pictures of felix and his family is quite difficult , I have also made this experience. The other children I have never found in pictures, I think Felix is simply not so famous as Otto. But it´s interesting, he´s the second brother, who is now over ninety. Zita became also became very old, but Karl not :'(

I was in Madeira last week.

Every time I go there I try to visit Karl's grave in the Church of Our Lady of Monte.
It is a moving place.

A suggestion:

Why not start a thread with Karl and Zita's children, their marriages, and their children.
F.i., I've never seen pictures/portraits of ADs Adelheid, Charlotte or Elizabeth - Otto's sisters (as adults).
Only as children.

Yes, you are right. I think there should be in general an own thread for the Habsburg. It´s a bit that they are mixed under the headline "Hohenzollern". There are already many Habsburgs discussed here, so I found it better to make an own over-thread for them. But I do not know, who decides about this.
Yes, making a thread on the children of Karl and Zita would be interesting, too. I only wondered if it not already here?
But it seems to me that it is not here. I also did not see -by you- mentioned children of Karl and Zita as adults. They are not easy to find, and it´s a pity.
But I have some other pictures, and maybe we can make a new thread for it.

It´s very interesting that you have been to Madeira to visit the grave of Karl I. I have never been to Madeira, and it must be interesting. Are there many memorials concerning the life of Karl I and his family there? Is the grave much visited. If you have any pictures it would interest me!

I am also interested in the person of Karl, a former teacher of mine has published a very interesting article on his ambitions of peace in the year 1917, but often this is understood wrongly and are interpretated as a separate peace. My teacher made the thesis that, if the empire of Karl had gone on (he always wanted to save as some kind of federation, where the states have more freedeom to decide on their own) we maybe would not have had the third Reich.
In some points I found this thesis a bit going to far, but this topic is much too complex to discuss it here in some sentences , if, it must have an own thread about Karl and his political views.

Sorry, I can’t post photos.
You will have to do with those sites.
And I couldn’t find any photo of Emperor Karl’s grave.

On 4th pic of 6th row you can see a statue of Sissi, who spend some time in Madeira.
BTW the statue was meanwhile removed to a not so sombre place.

And on 5th, 6th and 7th row you can see the hotel I stayed in. The yellow round building over the sea.

From Church of Our Lady of Monte (Hill) is the departure of the famous descent to Funchal in the typical wicker basket charriots

Yesterday a statue of Emperor Karl was unveiled in the churchyard of Our Lady of Monte, with the presence of TI&RH AD.Rudolf and Monika of Habsburg, and TRH The Duke and Duchess of Bragança.
Wish they had unveiled it last week  :-/[ch61516]
