Horthy, Miklós, Jr. (1907-1993)

After his older brother’s death in 1942, Miklos, Jr. gained a higher degree of importance as his father’s political aide, advocating separation from Nazi Germany. Kidnapped by Otto Skorzeny, the famous SS commando leader, he and his father surrendered under threat of death. After the war, he followed his father into exile in Portugal where he lived on for fifty years. He died in Lisbon in 1993, at age eighty-six.
