The legend goes something like this: after the disastrous Battle of Mohács in 1526, the twenty-one-year-old Queen Mary of Hungary fled the encroaching Ottoman army on a caravan of ships headed to Vienna.
But, on her way up the Danube a few ships sank along with their valuable cargo.
It is said that to this day they remain hidden in the murky depths of the river.
Soon, any truth to this story may soon be discovered, or disproved.
