Would you think that since Stoker based his novel on a person, and that person was similar to Vlad Tepes, that Van Helsing was written with John Hunyadi in mind?
I'll give a short answer to that question: No I do not.
|Bram Castle, The "home" of Count Dracula, not of Vlad Tepes|
|Tomb of Hunyadi, after his death in 1456|
It is a well written story, and I am sure that Van Helsing might have been an interesting character but, he was based upon a friend of Stoker.
