Vlad III the Impaler

Vlad III of Wallachia (more commonly known as "Vlad the Impaler" or "Vlad III Dracula") was the Prince of Wallachia who reigned from 1456 to 1462. Historically, Vlad III is most famous for resisting the expansion of the Ottoman Empire and for his unusually sadistic forms of punishment, impaling with a wooden stake through the abdomen as the most highlighted method. He is also believed to have inspired the name for Count Dracula in Bram Stoker's 1897 novel.
