In the novel, Professor van Helsing says he has many powers:
- He is as strong as twenty adult men.
- He can take on the form of a bat or a wolf.
- He does not get older.
The figure would not be known. Millions of copies have been sold since it was published in 1897 and people are still reading it today. It is one of the most popular books of all time.
Vlad the Impaler was a Transylvanian prince who killed his war prisoners by impaling them on stakes, a very slow and painful way to die. Some historians say that he dined among the pikes and bodies and some have gone so far as to say that he drank their blood. He was also the real-life model for Bram Stoker's legendary vampire character, Dracula. His full name was Vlad III Dracula, Drakulya, or Tepes, depending on who you ask.
Dracula the historical figure died centuries ago and lived in Eastern Europe. So no.
Dracula the vampire is a fictional character. So also no.
The novel by Bram Stoker was written around l897, it always surprised English students to find the two most popular Monsters- Frankenstein and Dracula were written as novels in the nineteenth century! of course legends about artificial life- such as the Golem, are far older.
Bram Stoker may have been thinking of Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia, whose Romanian name was Drăculea or Drakulya, but more commonly known as Vlad the Impaler because of the cruel punishments he imposed on his enemies. In Latin documents, Vlad signed his name as Wladislaus Dragwlya or Drakwlya.
The Australian actor, Richard Roxburgh, played the part of Dracula in the film Van Helsing (2004).
The inspiration for Dracula comes from Prince Vlad III of Wallachia, a fifteenth century ruler in eastern Europe. He was also known as Vlad Dracula and Vlad the Impaler. Several different stories exist as to how he died. He may have been killed by Turks, by his own men, either accidentally or deliberately, or accidentally during a hunt. He died either in December 1476 or January 1477.
When his temperature exeeds that of the average vampire.

He was not in the book. Vlad Tepes was a prince in Romania in the 1400s. Bram Stoker adopted the prince into a different adaptation to create a remorse tale about a vampire who was a count in Translyvania Romania. He wasn't in the book, he just contributed to the tale that Bram Stoker created.
Yes, Although he was better known as Vlad III the impaler. Bram Stoker (the author who initially wrote Dracula) simply stole Vlad's last name although he didn't mention what Vlad was really known for. Which was brutally impaling his victims while he fought in wars with the ottoman turks.
Actor Max Schreck.
With magic. He is a wizard, you know, a very powerful wizard.
He flies without a broom or other implement, which is surprising for other wizards - apparently no other wizard has been able to do that.
Yes, there was a real Dracula, and he was a true prince of darkness. He was the Prince Vlad III Dracula, also known as Vlad Tepes, meaning "Vlad the Impaler." The Turks called him Kaziglu Bey, or "the Impaler Prince." He was the prince of Walachia, Romania and defended also Hungary from the attacking Turks.
The term Dracula traces its origins to Romanian language.
DrÄƒculea is the original 'nickname' of Vlad Å¢epeÅŸ ('Vlad ZZepesh', where 'ZZ' sounds exactly like in 'piZZa'), a Romanian ruler that reigned in Transilvania (Eng. Transylvania) in the years 1448, 1455-1462, 1476. Several centuries later, Bram Stoker was born, fell in love with the character and decided to dedicate him an evergreen fictional book with the principal character reshaped as Dracula. Fantasy by history. That is.
More: Vlad Å¢epeÅŸ's father (nicknamed Dracul) was a respected member of The Order of the Dragon with the duty to protect the South Eastern European gate in front of invading Turks. He encouraged his son by nicknaming him 'DrÄƒculea' (Ro. 'son of Dracul').
His language: old Romanian (as seen in the centenary national monasteries).Is_it_Dracula_or_Draculea

Having been loaded on to a ship (the Demeter) bound for England, Count Dracula, hidden in a box containing his homeland earth, lived on the blood of the sailors on board until all were dead. The ship then pitched up, wrecked, in the harbour of Whitby in the county of Yorkshire in England, whereupon Dracula jumped from the wreck on to the quay in the shape of a large dog and escaped into the night.
