Transylvanian Saxons and the Pied Piper


Although most will classify the Romanian Royal Family ( the current Royal family) as mostly German, there is a lot more German in Transylvania than most would imagine.

It all began with the Pied Piper.  I think that he is a much better myth than the Dracula myths.

Maybe it is because some might think it is a bit of history after all, there are still Saxons who live in Transylvania, or may be it was the timing of everything.  See, the myth of the Pied Piper developed around the same time frame that the Saxons began to move to Transylvania.
