The Archduke Dominic Habsburg, a 69 year old New York architect, has put his family’s castle (pictured above) up for sale at “only” $135 million dollars. The Archduke (a member of Romania’s “former” Royal Family) commented to reporters that he would only sell the castle to a buyer who would treat the property and it’s history with appropriate respect.
(Renee’s aside: “News flash! News flash! your ArchDuke-ship, sir. Ain’t nobody, nobody, gonna be ‘dissing’ Vlad — now are they? “….
And–the sign read: CASTLE FOR SALE, CALL: TRANSYLVANIA 6-5000…)
