The fifteenth century Romanian Prince Vlad III Dracula, also known as Vlad the Impaler, is one of the most fascinating personalities of medieval history.

Already during his own lifetime, his true story became obscured by a veil of myths. As a result, he has been portrayed both as a bloody tyrant — who degenerated down throughout the centuries into the fictional vampire of the same name created by Bram Stoker at the end of the nineteenth century — and as a national and Christian hero who bravely fought to defend his native land and all of Europe against the invading Turkish infidels.

Even in more recent historiography, the true history of Dracula has been obscured by Communist and nationalist historiography.


" outstanding work of scholarship that carefully sifts through the often-contradictory sources, and popular culture associated with the name Dracula, to give us an historical Vlad Dracula, not a legend [...] Professors and students of history, humanities, or Bram Stoker’s Dracula will benefit immensely from reading this book." Chad Venters, PhD

"This book [...] is a must for anyone with an interest in the medieval history of Central and Eastern Europe. It also presents a fascinating background to the bloody and turbulent events that ensued as fifteenth-century Romania was set on a collision course with the most powerful empire since the invasion of the Romans in the early second century."
