"Although she was a countess, her family was impoverished, and she had worked as a waitress before marrying Prince Johannes von Thurn und Taxis, who was born in 1926. Known as the punk princess and "Princess TNT", Gloria was an icon in the 1980s. She was known for her exuberant and lavish spending and whirlwind social life.
However, on Johannes's death, the spending came to a halt as massive taxes were due on the estate he left behind."

"And through all her troubles, she never stopped buying paintings, sculptures, and photographs by 80s and 90s art stars such as Anselm Kiefer, Donald Baechler, Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, Andreas Gursky, and Paul McCarthy, which she thought nothing of juxtaposing with the palace's gilded furniture and ancient tapestries. Her sharp eye and adventurous taste paid off last November, when she sold 111 works at the Phillips auction house in New York for $8.4 million. "I will go on collecting," Gloria told me, "but young and up-and-coming artists, such as John Connelly, Paul Morrison, and Lisa Ruyter. I am also collecting medieval sacred art, which I have discovered I really love."
