You're so true. Celebs are very boring!

Thanks to colourful Gloria the Turn und Taxis might the best known nobel family in Germany. A Turn und Taxis wedding might sell more papers than the Prussia-Isenburg wedding. So Bunte has good reason to hope for an engagement!

weeeeeeell, the only problem his that this girlfriend isn't just as rich as Bunte claims. Her father went bankrupt with his holding and it was one of the biggest insolvencies in the history of the Austrian 2nd Republic. It was quite a scandal at the time 'cause several Austrian nobles and politicians were involved too .... The surname Maculan still rings a bell or two here ;-)

Yes absolutely, and someone told me that her father might have new business issues.
May be the T'n'T family has also business problems. The last years the family sold a lot property .....
......at the moment they want to sell the Taxis castle in Baden Württemberg - they want 9 million Euro. But may be they just do arrange their investitions in a new proper order ? Or it's the crisis....?

Historische Sommer-Residenz der Thurn und Taxis vor Verkauf?
So what castles remain? Only St Emmeram in Regensburg and Garatshausen in Tutzing? How many castles did the family own at prince Johannes' death in 1990?

BTW selling the ancient family castles may be an economically efficient choice, but that's not what I would expect from a princely family. Their main worry should be mantain the family historical heritage. I'm disappointed!

Why did Bunte deleted the article? After one day they closed the comment section. Maybe because some wrote about Xenias father and posted links to photos?
