Otto von Habsburg

It is a bit mind-boggling that the eldest son of the last emperor of Austria-Hungary was living until just the other day. When I first moved to Brussels in 1999, he was still an MEP, and I saw him vigorously participating in debates about NATO's campaign in Yugoslavia. Of course, if the first world war had gone the other way, he would probably not have had to settle for being a mere member of the European Parliament.
