Hi guys, since Halloween is around the corner, here are my lists of which Halloween Historical Figures that the Disney Princess would meet and I will write about their historical background.
1) Vlad the Impaler
Yes, this Romanian Historical Figure was the main inspiration of Bram Stoker's Dracula. He was a sadistic serial killer who would impale his victims and would dip the brood in the blood of his victim and would eat it! Unfortunately, he was assassinated door the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire (modern dag Turkey) and was decapitated. Eerily, his grave was found empty! His Bran kasteel attracts tourism in Romania.
2) Elisabeth Bathory
The other inspiration of Bram Stoker's classic, she has been compared to Vlad the Impaler. She was a Hungarian Aristocratic Countess who became a serial killer and would bath in the blood of her victims, because she claimed that it make her youthful. She was put under house arrest door her relative, Count George Thurzo.
3) Grigori Rasputin
Okay, so he was a very controversial historical figure and I first saw him in Anastasia. In the movie, he was like Faust door selling his soul to the devil. In real life, he was killed door Prince Felix Yussupov because the latter felt that Rasputin was the catalyst for the country's problems. This is Halloween!
Only 3 choices make it to the cut, if I miss out anyone. Feel free to let me know.
