What country did Vlad the Impaler come from?
The man moved about a great deal in his life, having relations
with Wallachia, Moldavia, Transyvania, Hungary, and the Ottoman
Turks. It is to Wallachia however that he was installed as ruler
(three times) and is most historically linked.
Vlad tepes was known as Vlad the impaler through his own country of Romania and by his enemies the Turks ect.. It was more like a nickname, something to better his image or in this scare, to strike fear into those who heard and said his name. Like his brother radu was also known as 'Radu the Handsome'. These nickname often come from their personalities, like Ivan the terrible, or Vlad the impaler.
Vlad the Impaler is a character that many historians talk about. Vlad was really called Vlad Dracula. A writer need a name for a vampire in his story and took the name Dracula. It is unconfirmed that he was a real vampire, but if you asked someone from Romania about Vlad, they will say how he saved them and all that stuff, nothing about a vampire! He was Prince Vlad of Wallachia, which is now…
