How the Mighty Have Fallen

BBC Reports:

Dracula's Castle has been returned to its ancestral owners 60 years after being seized by communists.

Well, it never really belonged to Dracula, but Vlad may well have visited it from time to time (presumably after dark) and the government didn't keep it up very well, so it's in disrepair.

It now passes into the possession of Dominic von Habsburg, a New York architect whose ancestors once ruled most of Eastern Europe [and Spain, and Holland, and the New World, and just about everywhere], but that was a long time ago. Now they have a run down castle with a shady past.

Read about it here.
