Palace to be razed

July 15, 1904

The Belgrade palace where King Alexander and Queen Draga were murdered a year ago will be "razed to the ground," reports the Los Angeles Times.   The building is said to be "haunted and accursed" by rich and poor.   The furniture and possessions of the late King were "valued by experts," and then burned.  The items have been estimated and the money will be given to Alexander's mother, Queen Natalie.  Recently, she presented to the National Museum in Belgrade all of her late husband and son's arms, many of which are of great value.
