Royal Family at Dominican DMG in The Hague

Direct from Diplomat Magazine’s Publisher Robert Buurke and Honorary Associate Publisher Dr. Eugenio Matos G. and the Special collaboration of Baron Henri Estramant. 

H.E. Mr. Luis Arias, Ambassador of the Dominican Republic, will be hosting Diplomats Meet & Greet at the Carlton Ambassador Hotel on 3 April, from 6pm, in the presence of Their Imperial and Royal Highnesses Archduke Sándor & Archduchess Herta Margarete of Austria-Tuscany, Royal Prince & Princess of Hungary and Bohemia, Prince & Princess of Croatia. As matter of anecdote the “Braşov” (Romanian) line of the Habsburg Dynasty whereto this archducal couple belongs is the only one wherein the lineage of Maria Theresia mixes with British Queen Victoria.

Which is the link between Their Imperial and Royal Highness and the Dominican Republic?

Archduke Sándor attended the « Colegio Carol Morgan » in Santo Domingo. His father, Archduke Dominic, who is co-owner and administrator of Bran Castle (known colloquially as “Dracula Castle”, www.bran-castle.com) He was lecturer at the “Instituto Tecnológico de Santo Domingo”.

During the II World War some members of the Habsburg House led by  Crown Prince Otto of Austria, Hungary, Bohemia and Croatia, assisted the Portuguese Consul-General in Bordeaux, Aristides de Sousa Mendes, to smuggle Jewish refugees and obtain visa for them to the Dominican Republic as “farmers”.  The Dominican Government was amongst the few countries welcoming Jewish refugees.

His Imperial and Royal Highness Archduke Sándor was born in 1965 in Vienna, Austria, as a direct descendant of Empress and Queen Maria Theresia of the Holy Roman Empire, Archduchess of Austria, Queen of Hungary, of Bohemia, of Croatia, etc. He is a member of the Tuscan line of the Habsburg Dynasty. He spent his youth in Austria, the Dominican Republic as well as Antigua and Barbuda. After he completed his university studies in the USA, his professional activities took him back to Europe, particularly to Austria. Presently he is on the board of directors of several companies and organisations.
