In 1917, Karl I received his brother-in-laws, princes Xavier and Sixtus of Bourbon-Parma, and French Intelligence officer Indiana Jones, to discuss a secret treaty with France and Great Britain that would end the Great War. At first Karl had doubts about signing the treaty and wavered before signing it. However his foreign minister, Count Czernin, had drafted a clever document that would allow the Austrians to deny knowledge of the treaty in the event that Germany became aware of it.
Behind the scenes
Karl I was portrayed by Patrick Ryecart.
