Juvenile Archduke Otto Francis of Austria. Vintage Photo depicting the Archduke in sailor’s suite.
3,4 x 5,5 inches, minor aging, no creases or tears.
Otto Franz Joseph Karl Ludwig Maria, Prince Imperial and Archduke of Austria, Prince Royal of Hungary and Bohemia (1865-1906) was the second son of Archduke Karl Ludwig of Austria (younger brother of Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria) and his second wife, Princess Maria Annunciata of Bourbon-Two Sicilies.
On October 2, 1886, he married Princess Maria Josepha of Saxony, daughter of King George of Saxony.
Their marriage was unhappy, however, since the Archduke was often unfaithful.
Otto had been in bad health for two years before his death, almost completely withdrawing from public life. He spent his first year of illness in Egypt, but his recovery there proved temporary when he returned to Austria, and he was seriously ill for his last few months.
