Zsolt and Geza Peladi, two penniless brothers who had been living in a cave outside Budapest, are to inherit a $7 billion fortune from their long-lost grandmother, United Press International reports.
UPI quotes Geza as saying, "We knew our mother came from a wealthy family, but she was a difficult person and severed ties with them, and then later abandoned us."
According to the Telegraph, the brothers were contacted by charity workers. Since their German grandmother had left no next-of-kin for her fortune, the vast amount of money was passed down to her next surviving relatives - the Peladi brothers and another sister who lives in America.
The brothers are hoping that the money will improve their life - and their love life. The Telegraph reports:
"If this all works out it will certainly make up for the life we have had until now -- all we really had was each other -- no women would look at us living in a cave," said Geza.
"But with money, maybe we can find a partner and finally have a normal life. "
