I dont think you might want to draw any conclusions based on pirate editions... just go through tintin in thailand and you'll see what I mean...

At the end of the day, the only person really to have known who or what spawned the diabolical Herr Doktor was Herge himself.

Hergé is unfortunately dead, but Müller, as all Hergé's characters, survived him: one can still find out his nationality, even if Hergé never cared about it, no?

This affirmation might say he could be Swiss, but his thinkings of the Third Reich suggest he is German
Surely he could be Austrian, since the man who founded the Third Reich was...

The Austrians were annexed (invaded without force) by the Germans, a bit like Syldavia and Borduria in Ottokar's Sceptre.
Why would he be Austrian just beacuse Hitler was born there? I am most confused.

Moderator Note: The point is that you have arbitrarily decided that because the Third Reich was mentioned he'd have to be German; it is being pointed out to you that as at least one member of the Reich was in fact Austrian, so too could it be for others. Also, as Switzerland was neutral, why would a Swiss parent be likely?
Even more to the point, using a pirate edition as a basis for an assumption is no use to true Tintinology (if the writer of your pirate had had him say he admired the 7th Cavalry, would you assume he was American?), and is not to be encouraged here...

The Kronprinz of Liechtenstein might be able to helps us solve this difficult question, but is he a tintinologist?

Maybe Müller has a german father and a brittish mother?
