April 28, 1930

There is "much excitement" in Austrian monarchist circles because of reports in today's Stunde, a Viennese newspaper, that Archduke Albrecht, "pretender and candidate," for the Hungarian throne, is going to marry a "Hungarian society woman."
If this story proves true, it would "mean an end to the hopes and ambitions" of Archduchess Isabella has "cherished" for her son's succession to "the throne of the Habsburgs."
The lady in questions is 33-year-old Frau Kallay, the daughter of a former civil servant, who is in the process of divorcing her husband.
Further inquiries made by reporters "elicited the statement" that the Archduke admires the lady, but "the rest of the story was without foundation."
