Archduke Joseph to be king of Hungary?

October 26, 1919

The Svenska Dagbladet "learns from what it considers reliable sources that Archduke Joseph of Austria," will soon be elected King of Hungary, according to a news report in the Chicago Daily Tribune.
The Archduke's "popularity and authority are growing steadily with the population. His wife, the former Princess Augusta of Bavaria, "also enjoys great popularity as the result of her self-sacrificing work."
Archduke Joseph was born in 1872, the son of Archduke Joseph Karl and Princess Clotilde of Saxe-Coburg. He married Princess Augusta of Bavaria in 1893. Princess Augusta's mother, Gisela, is the eldest daughter of the late Emperor Franz Joseph.
