Archduke and Prince of Austria, Prince of Hungary, Bohemia, and Tuscany by birth. Stefan was the eldest child and son of Archduke Anton of Austria and his wife Princess Ileana of Romania.

In 1942, he moved with his parents and four sisters and brother to Romania. While there, Stefan's parents made their residence at Bran, Braşov. After his 1st cousin, Michael of Romania, was forced to abdicate and expelled by the Communist regime late in 1947, Stefan left the country with his parents. Stefan then lived first in Switzerland, then in Argentina, and then finally in the United States.

He was naturalized as a United States citizen. He was a graduate from Malvern Preparatory School and MIT. He established a division for advanced research at General Motors in Detroit, Michigan.

Stefan married morganatically to Mary Jerrine Soper (born 19 June 1931 in Boston) on 26 August 1954 in Milton, Massachusetts. Stefan and Jerrine had five children together.

He died at age 66 on 12 November 1998 at Brighton, Livingston County, Michigan, USA.
