Texas-born princess evicted from P30 billion residence amid inheritance dispute

A Texas-born princess has been evicted from a P30 billion villa in Rome amid an inheritance dispute. 

According to PEOPLE Magazine, Princess Rita Jenrette Boncompagni Ludovisi has left the Casino dell’Aurora following an order from the Italian court. The royal home also had to be sold amid an inheritance issue between Princess Rita and the children of her husband, Prince Nicolo Boncompagni, who passed away in 2018. 

The Associated Press said that the property dispute started after Prince Nicolo died as his children said “the home has been in their family since the early 1600s.” 

Noted as the only ceiling known to have been painted by Italian painter Carvaggio, the mural in the extravagant residence shows zodiac signs and gods Jupiter, Neptune, and Pluto. BBC News said the artwork was finished in 1597, but was only discovered in the 1960s “after being covered for years.” This display makes the house expensive, among many other luxurious features. 

CNN International and the AP reported the locks have been replaced since she left the place.

The princess—who was previously married to Republican US Representative John Jenrette—described the order as a “travesty” and even called it “illegal and unnecessary.” 

“Someone said it’s because I’m a woman and I’m American, I don’t know,” she was quoted as saying, per BBC News. She reportedly added it “was all about money, obviously.”
