We have all heard stories and seen movies about the famous pop culture icon Count Dracula, but in reality we know very little about why he became so popular or even whether he was a real person or just a legend. Here are some interesting facts about our favorite character, Count Dracula:
Vlad III called himself “Dracul” “when young and renamed himself “Dracula” or the “Son of the Dragon” after he got involved with a secret society called The Order of the Dragons.
Much like his movie character, Count Dracula.
He even threw most of them in good style!
Stories about vampires have been around since long before Dracula was popularized by mainstream media and culture.
Most historians say that he died during Turkish invasions. But what people seem to have different views on is the fact that some say that his body was never found, while others say that it was buried but it disappeared. Vampirish much, Count Dracula?
