An epic inheritance fight will soon cost a Texas-born princess her 16th century villa


The Villa Aurora, a palace in Rome housing the only mural by Caravaggio and at the center of a messy legal battle between a Texas-born princess and the sons of her late husband, an Italian prince, will go up for auction on Jan. 18, 2022.

After years of legal wrangling, the sprawling Roman villa filled with masterpieces from antiquity to the Renaissance will hit the auction block Tuesday with a starting price of $534 million.
