Herbert W. Armstrong arrived in Munich from Israel on Thursday, May 16 1985. Two days prior, while in Jerusalem, he made the last edits to what would be his final and finest book, Mystery of the Ages.
On May 17 while in Germany, Mr. Armstrong met with former emperor of the Holy Roman Empire and respected EU parliamentarian Otto von Habsburg, who had brought with him his youngest son, Georg, a Munich university law student at the time. The two had met previously at Ambassador College in Pasadena and also in the Belgian capital, Brussels. The majority of the 90-minute meeting was recorded by the World Tomorrow television crew and incorporated into a special program later that year.
