Royalty and an unsual Castle in Transylvania



These two photos are images that I relate together, Queen Maria of Romania and Bran Castle in Bran, Transylvania.
Bran castle is the castle that Queen Maria lived in while in Transylvania. Her descendants by her daughter Illena now own the castle and intend to make it more "Western Friendly" by making it into a tourist attraction.
Not for her, or the Teutonic Knights who built it, but the character made famous in a Bram Stoker book. Dracula.
This is a sad event, since I am sure that many in Romania would love to see information about Queen Maria.
