Book: Vlad the Impaler

A Captivating Guide to How Vlad III Dracula Became One of the Most Crucial Rulers of Wallachia and His Impact on the History of Romania

My God, this guy is as scary as he is fascinating. Vlad III the Impaler or Vlad Dracula was Voivode of Wallachia three times between 1448 and his death. He is often considered one of the most important rulers in Wallachian history and a national hero of Romania. He was the son of Vlad II or Vlad Dracul (Dracul means being the member of the Guild of Dragons).

Captivating history has an excellent way of approaching these figures by taking the known facts and present them to you and show them in the context of the time they lived. Then, they give the lore, history, and legend around the person. With this mixture it allows us to separate fact from fiction and, in this case, understand the history of this fascinating person.

I think I mentioned in this site once or twice that I’m not the most significant history fan, but Val the Impaler sparked my interest, and I liked the way that was written by Captivating History. An excellent read.
