Arise, Sir Dracula: prince knights Christopher Lee
All of us at TheOneRing.net would like to offer our warmest congratulations to *Sir* Chrstopher Lee for this well-deserved honor!

Christopher Lee – aka Counts Dracula and Dooku, not to mention Lord Summerisle and the Duc de Richleau – had been invited to Buckingham Palace today to receive a knighthood for his services to drama and to charity.
