    In this March 17, 2015 file photo, Britain’s Prince Charles speaks with guests at a reception for he and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall at the British Ambassador's residence in Washington. Charles, who is known for boasting about sharing a bloodline with Vlad the Impaler, has been offered the title of Prince of Transylvania by a local mayor.

    Britain's Prince Charles has boasted he shares a bloodline with legendary 15th-century prince Vlad the Impaler. Now a mayor is offering to make him Prince of Transylvania.

    A spokesman for the mayor of the Transylvanian city of Alba Iulia said Charles had been offered the honorific title because of his promotion of Transylvania.

    Mihai Coser told The Associated Press Thursday that Charles is "more Romanian than many Romanians." So far, he says there has been no response to the offer.

    Charles visits Romania yearly, including a three-day visit last month.

    The prince already has a fair few titles, including Earl of Chester, Duke of Cornwall, Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles, and Prince and Great Steward of Scotland.
