Another British Writer and Transylvania


British Writers must love Transylvania.  In fact one can argue that the British in general love Transylvania.  After all the prince of Wales has a estate in Transylvania, and then there is Bram Stoker.

Also Robert Browning, and the famous Pied Piper book.  If you get an older version of his poem it end s with the speculation that the Pied Piper, without his money for the rats, took the children to Transylvania.

This of course is pure speculation, but in the end one might never know what happened with these children from Hamlin.  Still, it is an interesting idea.  The Saxons are of course from Germany....
