Blood doesn't get much bluer than that which courses through the veins of Karl von Habsburg, Imperial Prince and Archduke of Austria, Royal Prince of Hungary and Bohemia and Master of the Order of the Golden Fleece. But among his many glittering honors, his greatest title might be "Monuments Man." Like the characters in the recent film starring George Clooney, Archduke Karl works to save cultural artifacts and historical sites in danger of destruction. A widely acknowledged specialist on international humanitarian law and cultural heritage protection, his current work is focused on crisis-ravaged parts of Africa and the Middle East. Come meet a living link to the past (he is a descendant of Archduke Ferdinand whose assassination ignited World War I) and hear more about his fascinating present-day work. Learn More
