Castelul Bran by Diana Mandache

Romanian royal historian Diana Mandache has a new book out entitled  Castelul Bran which is about Bran Castle, once Queen Marie's residence, and then the home of her youngest daughter, Princess Ileana, and now owned by Ileana's younger son, Archduke Dominic.

I just ordered a copy of the book from the publisher, Curtea Veche.  The price of the book is 49 Lei + 51 Lei for international postage.    Total cost: just under $24.00.

The text is Romanian.  I expect Diana will have included many photographs, always a good thing.

This is her third palace book.  The first two were about Cotroceni and Balcicul.

It is easy and safe to order online.    If you are using Google, hit the translate into English (right click with your mouse) and the pages are translated into English.

The payment page had a button to translate into English.  Easy peasy.

Your orders should have in 2 - 3 weeks!

I have not seen this book -- just ordered it a few minutes ago -- but I am sure it will be very good as Diana is a historian par excellence.
