“Dracul: Of the Father – The Untold Story of Vlad Dracul” – by A.K. Brackob.
Stories of Dracula have fascinated people around the world for generations.
Both the fictional vampire created by the Irish author Bram Stoker at the end of the nineteenth century and the fifteenth century Prince called Vlad the Impaler, the man regarded as the historical Dracula, have become part of universal culture.
Yet few realize that the Wallachian ruler dubbed “ the Impaler,” is not the original Dracula.
Instead, that distinction belongs to his father, a little-known prince called Vlad Dracul.
Several books have been devoted to the study of his famous son, Vlad the Impaler, but any search for the historical Dracula must begin with the story of the father.
Now, for the first time, based on extensive documentary research, the true story of the man who founded the Dracula dynasty is revealed.
