Notes and references[edit]

  1. ^ Royal and noble titles were abolished in Austria and Hungary by the Adelsaufhebungsgesetz of 3 April 1919.[1] The family name of Michaela Habsburg's father was declared to be Habsburg-Lothringen by an Austrian ministerial decision in 1957 [2] and by a German court (Landgericht Würzburg) on 16 July 1958. Otto was, however, at the time de facto stateless, living in Germany with a Spanish diplomatic passport, and was denied both entry to Austria and an Austrian passport. Otto's official name as a German citizen from 1978 was Otto von Habsburg.
