Ferdinand Karl and his wife Bertha Czuber (1910)

Ferdinand Karl of Austria (Vienna, December 27, 1868 - Munich, March 12, 1915)

He was the third son of Archduke Archduke Charles Louis of Austria and Princess Maria Annunciata of Bourbon-Two Sicilies. Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, who was murdered in Saravejo on June 28, 1914, an event leading to World War I, was his elder brother.

As his brother, he concluded in 1909 a Morganatic marriage with Bertha Czuber (1879-1979). They had no children. In 1911 he was expelled from the house of Habsburg by Emperor Franz Joseph. Hereafter, Ferdinand named himself Ferdinand Burg and lived in Tyrol. By then Ferdinand Karl was affected by tuberculosis, of which he died in 1915.
