Otto Von Habsburg Dies at Age 98

BERLIN (AP) — A spokeswoman for Otto von Habsburg says the oldest son of Austria-Hungary's last emperor and longtime head of one of Europe's most influential families has died at age 98.

Eva Demmerle told The Associated Press on Monday that Habsburg died in his sleep early in the morning at his home in Poecking in southern Germany.

Born on Nov. 20, 1912, Habsburg witnessed the family's decline after the Habsburgs were forced into exile following World War I.

Habsburg settled in Poecking in the 1950s and went on to become a member of the European parliament for Bavaria's conservative Bavarian Christian Social Union.

Demmerle says he will be buried July 16 in the Emperor Tomb in Vienna, below the city's Capuchin Church.
