Dracula... No not again... But Links.

Welcome to all who are new, and my regular visitors, great to have your here. One question what do these four images have in common?



A map of Transylvania, when it was a part of the Kingdom of Hungary. This is an interesting map since it names it not in the Hungarian form but in the Latin and German.




One of the many fortifications in Transylvania. The City is called Sighisoara, the birthplace of this man...


Vald Tepes, made famous by Bram Stoker in his novel Dracula. It was according to some based partly on this woman.


Can you guess who she is?

What are the links now?

I know there was a woman who used to kill young woman and bath in their blood because she thought it kept her young. Argh, I can't remember her name, but there was a whole thing about her on the History Channel. Am I close?
