Freddie Mercury bequeathed the vast majority of his fortune to his ex-girlfriend, and also entrusted her to ensure that the burial place of his ashes would remain secret.
Freddie Mercury is known for being the lead singer and frontman for the band Queen.
Upon his death in 1991, he left the vast majority of his fortune, as well as his house, in the hands of his former girlfriend Mary Austin. Not only that, but he also trusted her to keep the burial place of his ashes a secret.
The rooms in the mansion are pretty much how Mercury left them. The furniture is even mostly the same.
Things haven’t gone easily for Austin in the years since Mercury’s death. She split with the father of her children, and a later relationship floundered as well.
Austin rarely gives interviews, but does so once in a while to keep the legacy of Freddie Mercury alive. He was a legend and now an almost mythical figure of showmanship.
The legacy of Freddie Mercury is sure to live on.
