Should you be seeking for a very real blood worshipping Vampire all you have to do is to look into the life story of Countess Elizabeth Báthory de Ecsed. (Báthory Erzsébet in Hungarian, Alžbeta Bátoriová in Slovak).
Báthory was born on the 7th August 1560, who died on the 21st August 1614. She was a Countess of the renowned Báthory family, who were of the Hungarian nobility.
Báthory has been historically labelled as being the most prolific female serial killer in history, who murdered her victims specifically for their blood, which is a historical fact.
Her story is far stranger than Bram Stoker fiction. Although the number of her gruesome murders is debated, since most of her victims were peasant girls.
Missing peasant girls were not considered to be important at a time when the general populace were treated as mere cattle by the aristocracy.
Hence Báthory could have murdered many more girls, who are not known about. She is remembered as the ‘Blood Countess;’ who was essentially a Vampire.
After her husband Ferenc Nádasdy’s death, Báthory’s heinous crimes came to light; she and four collaborators were accused of sexually torturing and killing hundreds of girls. One witness attributed to them over six hundred and fifty victims.
Although the number for which they were eventually convicted was eighty, since the numerous Blood Doll peasant girls were considered to be unimportant.
However, those victims who were of noble families brought about the invariable downfall of Báthory. She herself was neither publically tried nor convicted due to the aristocratic influence of her family.
During 1610, Báthory was eventually imprisoned within the fetid guts of Csejte (Čachtice) Castle, (now in Slovakia), where she remained bricked up within a set of horror rooms until her death four years afterwards.
Later writings about the case have led to legendary accounts of the Countess bathing in the blood of virgins, which of an evocative, though nightmarish image is none too dissimilar to femme fatale Cleopatra bathing in milk.
Perhaps Báthory had got the beauty treatment idea, to twist all out of shape from Cleopatra, or to have otherwise derived it from some ancient Egyptian rite via a gnarled old Necronomicon Witch she had in her employ.
Whatever the case, Báthory has earned the names Blood Countess and Countess Dracula. However, she is not by and large known about by the general public.
Most people commonly associate Vampirism with the historical personage of Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia (1431–1476), also known by his patronymic name Dracula (son of the Dragon, after his father [Vlad II] Dracul). He was posthumously dubbed Vlad the Impaler, who impaled his enemies as a terror tactic, when warring against the Ottoman Turks. Whereas Báthory engaged herself in all the unsavoury horrifying practices you would associate with a Vampire, let alone indulging in ghoulish cannibalism.
You can thereby determine that Báthory is a real Vampire, not Dracula, who did not come anywhere close on the Vampire scale. When Dracula is compared to insane Báthory, he appears to be quite normal; although psychotic, of similarity to a darker version of Robert E. Howard’s warrior character of Conan, merged with a crusading Solomon Kane.
Yet it is Dracula who is considered to be a Vampire, which is mainly due to Bram Stoker’s synthesis of a fictional tale, which transformed the ghoulish Eastern European Nosferatu of a bloodsucking Zombie into a suave seductive character of Vampire romanticism. Stoker’s work of Victorian fiction was primarily aimed at a female audience to impale, who at the time were infatuated by becoming entered unto by spirits, whose entrance into their quivering frames induced orgasmic possessions, while engaging in necromantic spiritualism, conjuring up bad-boy Incubi.
As for Báthory, she was quaintly forgotten. But then that is because she is a woman, who of course does not make other women swoon over her, unless they are sexually predisposed to their own gender. If such had been otherwise the case, Báthory would have eventually evolved into becoming an archetypal Twilight sensation of Hollywood Vampirism.
However, you presently have Alpha male type Chippendale hunks strutting their Gothic stuff, baring plastic Dracula fangs over the palpating breasts of yearning maidens amidst Twilight grottos. In order to prove the canine point, you only have to look at all the adoring female fans of machismo Vampires populating the books of Anne Rice.
It is the female fans who have empowered the mystique of Stoker’s Dracula. But if the truth be known, it is a woman who actually had the very real incisors ripping through jugular veins.
Researchers at the University of British Columbia have confirmed that women dig the psychotic bad-boy, of a Vlad Dracul impaling his victims, which crosses all cultural boundaries of a genetic imperative. Men, on the other hand were found to prefer women who are just plain happy with a sense of humour.
Although many males have an underlying fear of powerful femme fatale women who are very much aware of their sexual power. Though also Vamp attractive, likened to Vampira unto Elvira, it becomes entirely unattractive, when coupled with mass murder conducted by a predatory female Vampire; it tends to sexually turn a lot of men off big time. Let’s say, you have some bloke who says he gets a hard on, when to fantasise about female mass murderers, you might just say he has a… mental problem.
Hence a female Vampire of an icon has not made her celluloid mark on Hollywood’s billboard. Although there have been a few female Vampires haunting the media as Succubae; but they are quickly labelled as sexually exploiting women by the politically correct feminists due to their spray on Vampirella costumes.
As for a predatory male who is a mass murdering psychotic Vampire, he appears to sexually turn the women on big time with his glorified necrophilia, which has enabled Stephenie Meyer to reach the publishing heights with her grey area Vampire books for screaming teenage girls, who also have a Twilight liking for Werewolf bestiality and Fifty Shades Of Grey Christian bondage.
Whereby Hollywood sees the Alpha male Vampire as being a business asset. This is especially the case, since the underlying feminine attraction to a male Vampire, is not only because he is a very bad-boy beast, but also because he can offer her immortality. Hence she will never age when bitten within his embracement of Satanic darkness to then enter unto his Occult night as the forever youthful.
Báthory greatly disturbs women in general; for Báthory reveals the darker side of woman’s nature, more so the fear of crippling old age, which numerous cosmetic applications cannot ever eliminate; while Báthory sought to otherwise keep old age at bay by bathing in the slit throat essence of Blood Dolls bubbling in her Witches cauldron of a bath.
So, if there be any Anne Rice or Stephenie Meyer clones out there who are seeking out a real Vampire, look into a sunlit mirror, wherein you will see your own reflection of a Countess Elizabeth Báthory de Ecsed looking back at you, of a following shadow.
