Franz Joseph I speaking

Post by James A Pratt III » 05 Dec 2020 23:16

on youtube I have found 2 places where they have recordings of Kaiser Franz Joseph I speaking;

Tonaufame 1903 Kaiser Franz Joseph I

Kaiser Franz Joseph I voice (recorded 14 December 1915)

To our German speakers how does he sound and what is he saying

(1915)
I think I hear:
Ich begleite das Wirken des Österreichischen Militär- Witwen- und Waisenfonds mit meinen herzlichsten Wünschen. Möge seinen edlen Bestrebungen zum Wohle der Hinterbliebenen meiner braven Krieger voller Erfolg beschieden werden.

The other one has German text captions on the video.

Manchmal ist es noch wichtiger, zu wissen, daß man nichts weiß.
