Albrecht seen on plane

September 1, 1930

Archduke Albrecht's family denied today that he has departed for Spain, "a passenger aboard an airplane recognized him," according to an AP dispatch.
It was understood Albrecht will meet with King Alfonso XIII of Spain, and will make a formal request for the King to intervene on his behalf with the Pope. Archduke Albrecht seeks an annulment for his wife, the former Irene Rudnay, who was previously married to the Hungarian Minister at Sofia.
Alfonso is currently visiting the exiled Empress Zita of Austria.
