Elvis Presley to Be Declared Honorary Citizen of Budapest
Budapest Mayor Istvan Tarlos will anoint none other than Elvis Presley as a posthumous, honorary citizen of the Hungarian capital of Budapest. A city landmark will be named after “The King,” as well, reports The Associated Press.
Presley is being celebrated for his support of Hungary during the short-lived, Anti-Soviet revolution that occurred in October of 1956.
Visitors to the city’s website can choose one of 12 possible locations to be named after Presley, including street crossings or a small square. Voting ends Mar. 15.
