I see the big vontzes of the galitzyaner chasidim is a question of chukas hagoi
"כדוע ביי אונז זאגט מען "מזיקי הדת
I saw a nice drush in the Meshiv Nefesh of Harav Ginczler from Oiber Visheve ( Parshas Shoiftim ) in honour of the Kireh's 80th birthday.
Franz Josef was not a Kaiser. His grandfather Francis was. FJ was given the title of K.u.K., roshei taivos for "Kaiserlich und Koniglich", but only to soldiers in his role of commander in chief.In the case of Kaiser Willhelm agav, R' Yosef Chaim Sonnenfeld refused to be mechabed him citing the mesorah that Germany is Amalek.
Achtung Baby, you are mistaken:Franz Joseph was a Kaiser - Kaiser von Österreich, the Austrian Empire part of his dominion being Kaisertum Österreich. All his titles are quite long, I won't list them here: he was a Kaiser and King of several countries.
