Have you ever heard of Blessed Karl of Austria?
“Bl. Karl was elevated to the throne as Emperor of the Austrian Hungarian Empire in 1916 in the midst of the War to End All Wars, World War I,” the episode’s description says.
“We discuss how he virtuously and heroically balanced his life as a Catholic emperor, loving husband, and passionate father.
