The Blessed Emperor Charles
One must not be too hard on old Horthy. He was admittedly a Hungarian first, and never really a Habsburg loyalist.
One would love to believe it otherwise, but I suspect that an attempted restoration would have been stopped by the Freemmasons of France and the United States. The Revolution had won, and was not about to give up any of its victories lightly.
Actually the French tacitly supported Charles’ restoration attempts, because they were deeply afraid of Austria and Hungary drifting into Germany’s orbit.
Blessed Charles seems to be praying the now quasi-suppressed Second Confiteor.
