About this Item

Language: Spanish . Brand New Book. In the fifteenth century, the former Walachia, now known as Transylvania, was the scene of bloody battles between Turks, Christians and people of this region, among others, Slavs, Macedonians, Serbs and Croats. This is the story of Vlad III Dracula, known by his contemporaries the impale who, in the midst of this fighting mercilessly, fought with such means for the independence of his country that is still recalls his boundless cruelty. It is, among many other dreadful details, which used to have lunch surrounded by prisoners dying pierced by a stick. The road that leads from the real story until the legend is dark and tortuous, but it is not surprising that in the nineteenth century the Irish writer Bram Stoker was modeled on the bloodthirsty Prince Vlad Dracul to conceive the figure of Count Dracula, bloodthirsty, and that in the twentieth century, the film become one of our most terrifying myths.

About this title

Synopsis:

En el siglo XV, la antigua Valaquia, conocida hoy como Transilvania, fue escenario de cruentas luchas entre turcos, cristianos y los propios habitantes de esta zona geografica entre otros, eslavos, macedonios, serbios y croatas-. Esta es la historia de Vlad III Dracul, llamado por sus contemporaneos el Empalador, quien, en medio de estos combates sin cuartel, lucho con tales medios por la independencia de su pais que hasta hoy se recuerda su crueldad sin limites. De el se cuenta, entre otros muchos detalles pavorosos, que solia almorzar rodeado de sus prisioneros agonizantes atravesados por un palo. El camino que conduce desde la historia real hasta la leyenda es oscuro y tortuoso, pero no es de extrañar que en el siglo XIX el escritor irlandes Bram Stoker se inspirara en el sanguinario principe Vlad Dracul para concebir la figura del conde Dracula, sediento de sangre, y al que, ya en el siglo XX, el cine convertira en uno de nuestros mitos mas terrorificos. / In the fifteenth century, the former Walachia, now known as Transylvania, was the scene of bloody battles between Turks, Christians and people of this region, among others, Slavs, Macedonians, Serbs and Croats. This is the story of Vlad III Dracul, known by his contemporaries the ""impale"" who, in the midst of this fighting mercilessly, fought with such means for the independence of his country that is still recalls his boundless cruelty. It is, among many other dreadful details, which used to have lunch surrounded by prisoners dying pierced by a stick. The road that leads from the real story until the legend is dark and tortuous, but it is not surprising that in the nineteenth century the Irish writer Bram Stoker was modeled on the bloodthirsty Prince Vlad Dracul to conceive the figure of Count Dracula, bloodthirsty , and that in the twentieth century, the film become one of our most terrifying myths.
