Dracula: History and Myth. By Manning Leonard Krull

DRAC — a Romanian Princess’ dog, buried in a cemetery outside Paris

— Posted by Manning on December 29th, 2011

I was wandering around Le Cimetière des Chiens — the Dog Cemetery in Asnières-sur-Seine, just outside Paris, on a gloomy day a few weeks ago and noticed this tomb for Drac, a dog belonging to a Romanian Princess!

The inscription on Drac’s tomb translates as follows:

DRAC
1941-1953

Loyal companion during tragic times
Precious friend in exile

S. M. Queen Elisabeth
Princess of Romania

A little research reveals that “Queen Elisabeth, Princess of Romania” is probably Elisabeth of Romania (Wikipedia link here) who died in the south of France in 1956.

Rest in peace, Drac!
