Countess Dracula, a ruthless and sadistic serial killer. The story I’m going to tell you about in this article refers to a sinister news story. Based on what the historical chronicles report, to one of the most disturbing figures of all time. We are talking about the Countess Erzsébet Báthory. Born on 7 August 1560 in Nyírbátor , a small village in present-day Ungeria. However, much of his childhood was spent in Trasilvania. From a noble Protestant family, inside it boasted prominent figures of the Hungarian and Polish aristocracy.
For those who, even after the post, want to deepen this ruthless character in history and investigate the small details of his life, I recommend reading The Countess Dracula. The life and crimes of Erzsébet Bathory by Tony Thorne.
The childhood of Countess Dracula
Even as a child, Countess Báthory apparently suffered from epilepsy problems and a form of schizophrenia is also suspected. On the other hand, several of his relatives presented nervous system disorders and other psychic problems. In fact, it was not uncommon for little Erzsébet to suffer sudden episodes of anger, even in a violent way against those around her.
Recent theories assume that she may have been a victim of sexual harassment from an early age, perhaps by a close relative. Other theories attribute the aggressive and unpredictable nature to the teachings and influence imparted by her wet nurse who is said to have been devoted to black magic and the occult.
At the age of 11, Countess Dracula was betrothed to Count Ferenc I Nádasdy . Then he moved to live with it in Nádasdy Castle.
The marriage of the Countess
At the age of 13 he married Nádasdy and began his married life. Legend has it that at the age of 18 she conceived an illegitimate daughter who she entrusted to local farmers. Later, however, he also had three daughters and a son, all legitimate.
