Vlad the Impaler
Transcript of Vlad the Impaler
Wikipedia(2012), Vlad the Impaler, retrieved October 13, 2012 from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vlad_the_Impaler Bibliography (APA) True to his name, Vlad enjoyed impaling his captives of war on tall spikes and positioning them outside his castle for all the world to see. Also, one of his favorite pastimes was toturing small mice, birds, and even people. Another name that he lived up to was the original Dracula. While the name Dracula came from his family's surname Draculea; however the "original dracula" part came from his habit of drinking the blood of his defeated enemies. Vlad the Impaler's Legacy Vlad the Impaler, also known as Vlad Tepes, the original Dracula, or Vlad the III, was an absolute monarch. An absolute monarch has the power to rule their land freely, with no laws or legally direct opposition in force. When Vlad came into office, he found his kingdom in economic and crime stricken turmoil. To rebuild the strength of the economy, Vlad limited the foreign trade in Wallachia to only three cities:Târgșor, Câmpulung and Târgoviște. He also tried to keep Wallachia as economically indpendent as possible. As far as religion goes, his religious views were not clear in history. It is believed that he was born a Catholic, but later converted to Orthodox. The impoverished citizens were very grateful of Vlad and his attempts to rebuild Wallachia, but the corrupt nobility (boyars) were less than fond of him. the way that Vlad ruled, as an absolute monarch, deprived the nobles of the power that they felt was theirs. Vlad felt the same way about the nobles, which led him to execute the majority of the nobles and put knights and commoners in their offices.
