Georg Friedrich Maximilian Jaroslav Petrus Canisius Markus Hubertus Maria,
since 1977 Duke of Hohenberg,born April 25th 1929,died July 25th 2019.

He succeeded his brother in the title first given to his grandmother,the
morganatic wife of Archduke Franz Ferdinand (had she been considered a
dynastic wife,Georg would have been the claimant to the Austro-Hungarian
throne rather than a duke unrecognized by the Austrian republic he served
as an ambassador).In 1917,the Emperor who succeeded instead granted
the dukedom to Georg's father Maximilian (1902-1962) on a hereditary
basis.

The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.

Georg Duke of Hohenberg is not to be confused with the musician George Duke, who died in 2013.
