Having started his career as a butcher, this eccentric moved into the nightclub business and is described as “one of the largest and most visible owners of brothels in Germany”. Jailed at least twice for offences numbering human trafficking and tax evasion, he paid “several million dollars” for his new name when he was adopted by Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt in 2006 and allegedly gave his wife, Zsa Zsa Gabor, a cheque for $6 million after she lost vast sums in Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme. Of his life, Marcus Prinz von Anhalt comments: “Success and wealth were always my highest goals. The life of luxury, the international jetset, millions in bank account and domiciles in all the world’s hot spots, owning the most expensive cars, travelling around the world on yachts and private jets, having the most expensive watches and the newest designer clothes, all that was very important to me, for it shows me that hard work and success DO pay”. You really just couldn’t make it up.
I was under the impression that Madoff only yensed Jews…
He also took a lot of Roman Catholic money and a lot from drug barons in South America. It is surprising that they haven’t dealt with him.
A springtime for Herr Adolf Hitler. The Fuhrer must be turning in his grave, what would he have made of this terrible Liberace look alike. von Anhalt makes a mockery of Mein Kampf. For God sake, don’t mention the war.
Na, he discriminated against no-one when it came to stealing their money. After all, the more sheep to shear, the more cash to spend…
He currently “resides” in a German jail for tax fraud – not very lavish I presume…!
Another day, another crook!!!!!!!!!
Don’t play it down, they started the war, by invading Poland. It was not a lovely war. I am going to mention the war……….
