She ordered Colonel August Spiess, the manager of Royal Hunts, to organize, between August 29 and September 3, , an expedition on the Sinoe lake in order to acquire swans. The swans caused big problems for the Queen, even leading to a conflict with the inhabitants of Bran when one of the swans was eaten by dogs.
Following the incident, some of the castle's men shot the pedigreed dogs of the private residents in the surrounding area, who appealed directly to the Queen and protested. The Queen loved horses as well, being a passionate horse-back rider. Every morning she would go riding, either in Bran Park or outside of the palace grounds, on the exercise field at Cotroceni, in which case she was followed by a horseman.
During the cold and snowy seasons, I often saw her riding in Bran Park, wearing a long dark blue cloak adorned with silver chevrons, similar to those worn by Circassians, and a silver dagger on her left escutcheon. Her face was ruddy due to the cold weather, and the halo of her golden hair descended from her black fur cap.
The Queen & Castle
She was as beautiful as the emperor's daughters I used to admire in the storybooks of my childhood. During Queen Marie's time, Bran Castle witnessed a period of glory as a royal residence. The domain of Bran Castle was extended by the Queen by purchasing or transferring the meadows around the castle into her property. The total area of the Domain, as assessed after the Queen's death, was yokes, in addition to yokes of forest beech and fir trees , 93 yokes of grazing fields, and 2 yokes of meadowlands. Throughout her domicile at Bran, Queen Marie did everything she could to help the adjoining villages and their residents.
Many villagers were day-employees on the Domain, either in the gardens of Bran Park or in various projects at the Castle that allowed them to earn an income.

After the power plant was built, three adjoining villages Bran, Simon, and Moeciu were also annexed to the newly created system, and the Handicrafts School of Bran was supplied with electricity free of charge. The tradition of helping the neighbouring villages was also maintained by the Queen's successor to the castle, Princess Ileana.
In June of , she authorized the launching of a Community Centre for the inhabitants of the Bran community, which occupied four rooms on the Castle's ground floor. Queen Marie passed away on July 18, Her passing was the end of a glorious period in the history of Romanian monarchy. During her last years, compassion amplified the people's love for her: we all knew that, with the exception of Ileana, her children were not treating her as well as they should have.
One could not say, however, the she did not live her life to the fullest. She experienced all of life's pleasures, as a queen and as a woman; and lived up to some great expectations. Among the greatest of them was being remembered as a bright icon by an entire nation.
Despite having only arrived in the country the previous day, the Queen expressed her enthusiasm to travel to Bran and to Balchik, her favourite abodes. Unfortunately, her last wish would not be fulfilled. It is the ultimate confession of the love the Queen nurtured for the people she came to rule. The letter expressed, for the last time, Queen Marie's passion for the creation of her two favourite residences, Balchik and Bran,. The Princess, who lived with her husband, Anton von Habsburg, in the Sonnberg Castle in Austria, , arrived too late to find her motheralive.
When we returned to Austria, ten days later, they asked us for forgiveness. After the Queen's death, on August 3, , the architects D. The Castle was valued at Lei 4,,, the land at Lei 5,,, and the other buildings of the complex at Lei 9,, As a whole, the domain of Bran Castle was worth Lei 20,, After a week, on August 11, the official transfer was made and the Castle became the property of Princess Ileana, who later returned to the country for good in September of , after King Carol II abdicated.
The case containing the Queen's heart was eventually placed in an alcove, which was chipped into the cliff near the old church.. The heart was placed in an octagonal silver case weighing grams , which was enveloped in the flags of Romania and England.

It was then inserted into a bigger case 8. The case containing Queen Marie's heart was placed in a white marble urn, wrapped in the flag of Brig Mircea, and transportedto the Stella Maris chapel in Balchik. She said she would be more accessible there than in the royal graveyard; that throughout her life people could approach her heart with their pains and desires, and she wished for it to remain the same after her death. Her heart was therefore brought to Balchik, to her beloved palace on the seaside.
In , however, the cruel decision was made in Vienna allotting that part of Romania to the Bulgarians.
