it   Zio Paperone, accompagnato dai nipoti, torna al castello dei suoi antenati per cercare il tesoro dei Templari.
Grazie a un incontro con una persona che lui aveva cacciato dalla sua vita, Paperone fa il bilancio del proprio passato e si riconcilia (anche idealmente) con la propria famiglia. Questa storia dimostra la maturità di Don Rosa, che riesce a trattare in un fumetto Disney argomenti "forti": si parla di morte, del rapporto difficile tra Paperone e i suoi familiari, e persino di religione.
