Transylvania, although not the land he ruled, was a place where he was exiled or where he fought other people. It is interesting that the stake through the heart to kill Count Dracula, or his vampires, was Tepes's method of torture and killing of his enemies. Unlike "newer vampires" he was not harmless. Yet, while no one argues that the man was kind and caring to his enemies, he was generous to his followers.
