Dracula: The Life of Vlad Tepes

4 April 2015
A review of the history of Romanian ruler, Vlad Tepes, on whom Bram Stoker based his novel “Dracula.”

This paper presents facts about a one time actual ruler, Vlad the Impalar, of what is now known as Romania. It looks at the actual figure and the similarities between Stoker’s character, Dracula and the Romanian ruler. The paper uses the only known resources that are written about Vlad and tells a little of the horrors and history of 15th century Europe.
Vlad’s main goal was to maintain rule. Dracula allied himself with Hungary against his former allies, the Turks, and pledged that he would fight for the Christian cause. Even though Vlad pledged to fight for the Christians, he remained a Romanian Orthodox, in doing so he ensured his position in Wallachia as ruler for the time being.
