The castle was sold for one euro
The head of the House of Hanover flew into a rage when he learned about the act of his son. Now he wants the court to declare the transaction insolvent.
German prince Ernst August, head of the Hanoverian royal house, sued his own son. Ernst August Jr, secretly from his father, sold the family castle Marienburg, which belonged to the family for 154 years. Writes about this MailOnline.
The publication reports that in 2004 the Prince of Hanover handed over to his son several large real estate properties, including Marienburg. In 2018, August Jr. realized that the maintenance and restoration of the castle was costing him too much and sold it to the German government for 1 euro, without telling the family.
Together with the castle, about a hundred old paintings, heirlooms, antique furniture and sculptures were transferred to the government.
The father of Augustus Jr. intends to challenge the deal in court.
“The Bundestag has already voted to allocate 14 million euros for the reconstruction of the castle, so the government, apparently, considers it completely its own,” the statement said.
As reported, the estate of the widow of the car manufacturer Henry Ford II Kathleen DuRoss Ford, which became the subject of a lawsuit between the heirs, was put up for sale. He was charged $ 58 million.
