The Real Dracula

Just a bit of a warning before we get into the actual video itself – we found this (pretty awesome!) documentary on YouTube and the uploader (Alain Documentaries) had kindly left the embed feature on.

Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that good old Alain Documentaries hold the rights to this documentary…so it could get pulled at any time!

If you do see a ‘dud’ video above when visiting this page we are sorry – please send us a message through the contact page and we’ll get it replaced with a similar video asap!

The blurb underneath this documentary on YouTube reads:

“Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia (1431–1476/77), was a member of the House of Drăculești, a branch of the House of Basarab, also known, using his patronymic, as (Vlad) Drăculea or (Vlad) Dracula. He was posthumously dubbed Vlad the Impaler, and was a three-time Voivode of Wallachia, ruling mainly from 1456 to 1462, the period of the incipient Ottoman conquest of the Balkans. His father, Vlad II Dracul, was a member of the Order of the Dragon, which was founded to protect Christianity in Eastern Europe. Vlad III is revered as a folk hero in Romania as well as other parts of Europe for his protection of the Romanian population both south and north of the Danube. A significant number of Romanian and Bulgarian common folk and remaining boyars moved north of the Danube to Wallachia, recognized his leadership and settled there following his raids on the Ottomans.”

And before you say anything – yes, I totally agree! This was an extremely lazy way for me to write a bio – but don’t you think the uploader did a pretty good job of covering the whole picture? (one hopes!).

Anyway vampires are vampires – and Dracula is the ‘DADDY’ when it comes to this subject!
