He was the last Emperor of Austria, the last King of Hungary, [1] the last King of Bohemia, Croatia and the last King of Galicia and Lodomeria and the last monarch of the House of Habsburg-Lorraine. He reigned as Charles I as Emperor of Austria and Charles IV as King of Hungary from 1916 until 1918, when he "renounced participation" in state affairs, but did not abdicate. He spent the remaining years of his life attempting to restore the monarchy until his death in 1922. Following his beatification by the Catholic Church, he has become commonly known as the Blessed Charles of Austria."--Wikipedia, May 2011

Where the lion trod by Gordon Brook-Shepherd( Book )

5 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gordon Shepherd gives the reader a fascinating glimpse of the heritage (in the form of social, economic, traditional and linguistic legacies) which the India of today "enjoys". Throughout the country, from the old-time tea-planters in the South to the British-trained bureaucrats on the critical mountain border with China in the North, there is to be found something of the Raj's influence. Schools, clubs, civil service, sport, politics, communications--all have, discreetly or openly, knowingly or unknowingly, assimilated something useful, appealing or, in a few cases, pathetic, of an imperial way of like that has gone for ever. Written with sympathy, humor and perception and accompanied by John Verney's distinguished drawings
