The Austro-Hungarian Throne.

The marriage of the Archduchess Valeric, whose union with the Archduke Francis Salvator has been announced, was preceded on June 15th by a most important function. In the presence of the Imperial family, the Imperial notary, and other high notables she renounced her right of succession to the AustroHungarian throne. The Emperor has now only two children living, the Archduchess Griselda, and the Archduchess Valeric. The elder daughter went through a similar renunciation of her rights previous to her marriage. Their chance of succession to the regal authority was, however, somewhat remote, aa what is known as the Pragmatic Sanction provides that only m case of failure of the male line shall women succeed m their order of connection with the throne. There are several of the male line who would succeed before either of the Emperor's daughters, the husband of Archduchess Valeric being #ne of them. It is hard to predict what may happen, however, m the royal family of Austria. There has been an epidemic of renunciation among theni by one means er another. The suicide of the Crown Prince was followed by the renunciation of right of succession on the part of the Archduke Karl Ludwig. Again, m October, of last year, Archduke John petitioned to be allowed to lay down his rank and titles, and sailed away m his yacht as plain Mr Johann Orth.
