    I gather Brukenthal donated all his collections to the museum. He must have been extremely wealthy. All the best. A.

    Yes, he was the governor of Transylvania at the time, one of the Habsburgs. He was also very into homeopathy and funded the guy (whose name I forget right now) who was basically the founder of homeopathy.
