R. Badger posts a "short video [that] should give an idea of what might happen at the funeral of Otto von Habsburg-Lothringen" — Otto von Hapsburg dies. "When Empress Zita died in the 1980s, some of the old Habsburg ceremonies were resurrected," he writes, elaborating,
- There was a funeral Mass celebrated in the magnificent Stephansdom, the cathedral of Vienna. The old imperial anthem was sung. Finally, the coffin bearing the remains of Empress Zita was taken to the Capuchin church. They knocked on the door leading to the imperial crypt with a mace announcing that they carried the body of Her Imperial Majesty, the Empress Zita. After hearing all the imperial titles of the late Empress, the Capuchin friar said in reply, “we don’t know her”. They knocked on the door again and the friar asked who was there. This time, they said, “a poor sinner”. At that, the door was opened and the body of Empress Zita was taken into the crypt.
