"Take it coolly."
--Emperor Maximilian, in a childhood notebook (in English!)
Casaimperial.com, the only official website dedicated to the House of Iturbide, pretenders to the Mexican imperial throne, to have secured the help of Don Maximiliano de Götzen–Iturbide, the current heir to the Hapsburg ruling tradition in Mexico. Really. Maximilian adopted one of his (Maximiliano, not Maximilian) ancestors as his (Maximilian's) heir before he (Maximilian, not Maximiliano, again) got shot by firing squad. Lots of pretty pictures and cool monarchist stuff, including Mad Empress Carlotta's bathtub. Enjoy!
