The Legend And The One Who Made Him Immortal (Vlad Dracula And Bram Stoker)

Vlad Tepes III was born some time in 1431 and lived to be the ruthless leader of Medieval Wallachia, Romania. Known throughout history as 'Vlad The Impaler,' his reign was soaked in the blood of his enemies. Famous murals depict his defeated ones dangling from giant wooden stakes, with Vlad himself feasting in their torturous states.
Surely this couldn't be real! Perhaps an embellishment from his enemies. As we all know history is told by the winners.
But those heinous war crimes lived on, thanks to author Bram Stoker. His immortal tale of the undead vampire Dracula has sparked the dark imaginations of horror fans throughout the ages. And much like Mary Shelley's ageless "Frankenstein," the legend shows no signs of dying. As it is meant to be.
Much like George A. Romero, who popularized the zombie, Bram Stoker didn't invent the vampire. It was a legend for the superstitious. But Stoker is responsible for it's current incarnation.
The legend has seen tweaks to it's mythos but it is very much alive with Bram Stoker's legendary tale still being sold at book stores around the world. Happy birthday Bram Stoker. And thank you.
