Otto's pledge rejected

June 13, 1961

The Austrian government today rejected former Archduke Otto of Austria's "declaration of loyalty," reports United Press International.   The Socialist members of the Coalition government believe that the son of the late Emperor Karl, would enter politics as soon as he was allowed to return to Austria. 

Archduke Otto, who lives in Bavaria with his family, will continued to be barred from returning to Austria, where he was born in 1912.  His father abdicated in 1918, and the family has lived in exile since then.
