Capitalist Bloodsucker Gets Dracula Castle

category international | history and heritage | other press author Friday May 26, 2006 12:42author by pat c Report this post to the editors

The original "Dracula" Castle in Transylvania is being handed back by the State to a Capitalist Bloodsucker. One of the last Gains of October is being frittered away. Once more the Romanian People are being bled dry by Emigre Bourgeois Bloodsuckers.

One of Romania's most popular tourist attractions, Dracula's Castle, is to be returned to its ancestral owners 60 years after being seized by communists. The castle in Transylvania will be handed back to the Habsburg family in a special ceremony on Friday.

US architect Dominic von Habsburg, who inherited the castle, was forced to leave with his family in 1948.

The 14th-Century fortress - whose real name is Bran Castle - has appeared in dozens of Hollywood Dracula films.

It was owned by the late Queen Marie who bequeathed it to her daughter, Princess Ileana, in 1938.

When the communists took power in Romania, the castle was confiscated and fell into disrepair.
