American film actor is Afghan prince
"A Hollywood actor who starred in horror film Dawn Of The Dead has found he is prince of the Afghan province of Ghor. Scott Reiniger, who appeared in the 1978 movie, is the great, great, great grandson of Josiah Harlan, the first American to set foot in Afghanistan. As a result of a treaty Harlan signed, his heirs are granted the title Prince of Ghor in perpetuity. Reiniger only found out his title after UK journalist Ben Macintyre published a book on his ancestor's life... 'The treaty remains in effect,' Macintyre explained. 'Although it would be a brave man who attempted to reassert his claim to be the Prince of Ghor at this stage.'"
