DRACULA - THE TRUE STORY AND WHO HE REALLY WAS (Documentary) History/Legend/Vampire
Documentary purporting to show the real history of Vlad III. While it does a good job, it has a few inaccuracies.

By inaccuracies I mean more than mispronouncing Sighisoara and Brasov. It skips over the role Vlad's brother, Rahul, played, and the fact that Vlad and Rahul both lived during childhood in Mehmet's Court. It also skips over the role of the King of Hungary, and the role of the Hungarian culture in Transylvania.
The most important thing this video does is demonstrate Vlad's lineage, and how he came about the name Dracula. It's a lineage name. A lot of the bad thinking about Dracula comes from Hungarian and German propaganda at the time.comments powered by Disqus
