But he also leads said rescuers from the front [[BlingOfWar in all his Imperial finery]]. While he ''[[GenreSavvy knows]]'' his straight-out-of-a-museum example is [[HollywoodTactics obsolete by]] [[TechnologyMarchesOn modern standards]], it's mentioned that he really doesn't have much left to lose in his "last shot at glory."

* That both Austria and Hungary held on to their promises, made and known only to each other, long after Doomsday may count. Their relationship ''before'' then, against the wider context of the ColdWar and even their own governments, definitely helped (which is in a sense TruthInTelevision).
