Prince of Transylvania? Prince Charles offered a new title


Romania — Britain's Prince Charles has boasted he shares a bloodline with legendary 15th-century prince Vlad the Impaler in the past. Now a mayor is offering to make him Prince of Transylvania.

A spokesperson for the mayor of the Transylvanian city of Alba Iulia said Charles had been offered the honourific title because of his promotion of Transylvania.

Mihai Coser told The Associated Press on Thursday that Charles is "more Romanian than many Romanians." So far, he says there has been no response to the offer.

Charles visits Romania yearly, including a three-day visit last month.

The prince already has a fair few titles, including Earl of Chester, Duke of Cornwall, Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles, and Prince and Great Steward of Scotland.
