Which one image makes you relate to Dracula?
After all he is a huge market attraction for Transylvania and Romania. The books by Bram Stoker allowed the idea of Dracula to "live" on in the Western world. Yet, the man is something of a mystery. In many ways he is not as important a figure as what some will make him out to be. He is however the most famous due partly to Stoker's novel.
That is the power of writing and of history.
