Her name is Irina Walker, she and her husband were busted in Oregon as part of a cockfighting ring that spanned two states.
Her parents are King Michael I and Queen Anne of Romania so she is in fact, a real princess and fifth in line for the crown.
Making this even more of a headscratcher, the royal family is pretty well off. They own four castles in Romania and are popular in the nation.
In total 28 people were arrested and accused of running up to 10 cockfighting derbies complete with lineups.
The Oregonian reported the organization made it like "a fight card in a night of boxing," that included gambling on the birds.
Walker’s husband is a former sheriff’s deputy
The princess and her buddies are being charged with illegal gambling, conducting unlawful cockfighting ventures, and conspiracy to violate the Animal Welfare Act.
Reports say the princess, now 60 years old has been in Oregon since 1983 after being raised in Switzerland with very little time spent in Romania.
