Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes "Otto von Habsburg: die autorisierte Biografie" by Stephan Baier and ‎Eva Demmerle (Amalthea, 2002): "Am 11. Januar 1961 notiert er in seinem Kalender, dass Karl gegen 10 Uhr zur Welt gekommen sei. Um 11.30 Uhr geht er, um Mutter und Sohn zu sehen, anschließend verfasst er zu Hause einen Artikel und »unzählige Briefe«..." (p. 272); "gegen 10 Uhr vormittags - um 11.30 Uhr erscheint der Vater, um den erstgeborenen Sohn zu sehen. Bischof Wechner tauft den Jungen am 18. Januar 1961 unter großem Presserummel in Pöcking auf den Namen »Karl Thomas Robert Maria Bahnam Franziskus«; Taufpatin ist seine Tante Adelhaid" (p. 217).

Translation: On January 11, 1961, he noted in his diary that Karl had come into the world at 10 o'clock. At 11.30 o'clock, he went to see mother and son, then he wrote an article at home and "numerous letters"... at 10 o'clock in the morning and at 11:30 the father sees his first-born son. Bishop Wechner baptizes the boy on January 18, 1961, to large media attention in Pöcking with the names 'Karl Thomas Robert Maria Bahnam Francis'; his aunt Adelhaid is godmother."
