Europe’s aristocrats

October 2nd, 1993
VN:F [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 5.0/5 (1 vote cast)

Myth: The European Commission is poised to draw up an authoritative directory of Europe’s aristocrats as a means of investigating the improper use of titles on bottles of wine.
Source: The Daily telegraph (2 October 1993, p.19)

Truth: This is not the case. The case for a Community heraldic register has been put to the European Parliament by an Italian MEP. However, the Parliament’s Cultural Committee was unable to process this; it is currently awaiting the decision of the Parliament’s Youth Committee.
