AN AUSTRIAN ALBUM © National Geographic Society Autochrome Lumiere by Hans Hildenbrand TALES OF RICHARD THE LION-HEART STILL ARE TOLD IN DURNSTEIN ON THE DANUBE Mothers resting with their children by the fountain in the Abbey courtyard tell how the warrior King of England, homeward bound from the Crusades, was imprisoned in the craglike castle high above the town. Legend says he was found when the faithful troubadour Blondel, wandering through Europe in search of his King, sang a familiar song beneath the castle windows and Richard sang it back to him. These folk costumes, worn on special occasions, have been handed down, like the story, for generations. In an Austrian castle at Enzesfeld, some 43 miles from here, the Duke of Windsor stayed with friends.
