Marriage and issue

Archduke Otto Franz and his family

On October 2, 1886, he married Princess Maria Josepha of Saxony, daughter of King George of Saxony. They had two sons:

  • Archduke Karl Franz of Austria (1887–1922), who became the last Emperor of Austria and had issue.
  • Archduke Maximilian Eugen of Austria (1895–1952). Married Princess Franziska von Hohenlohe-Waldenburg-Schillingsfürst and had issue.

Their marriage was unhappy, however, since the Archduke was often unfaithful. By one Marie Schleinzer he had two children:

  • Alfred Joseph von Hortenau (Niedersigen, November 10, 1892 – 1957)
  • Hildegard von Hortenau (Wien, March 7, 1894 –)

He 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.

Notes

  • In his lifetime he was also known as "Otto der Schöne" (the Handsome). He is usually remembered for the widely-circulated story that he had been spotted in a hallway at the Hotel Sacher, about to enter a lady's room, wearing nothing else but a sword.
