Francis Joseph (Franz Josef, 1830-1916), Emperor of Austria and King of
Hungary, made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem in 1869. While in the Holy Land he
failed to take the opportunity to inquire about Baha'u'llah Who at that
time was a prisoner in Akka (Acre).
The Aqsa Mosque, literally, the Most Distant Mosque, is referred to in
the Qur'an, and has become identified with the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
