    I always thought that Rasputin’s death qualified him

    • Matt

      It should lol he just wouldn’t die xD

  • Marieke

    I like how you specify which person is pictured above the text, and sometimes even from what year the picture is. Should be a list-making rule!

    “Vampires have remained a major aspect of Romanian culture”. They never were. We didn’t heard of vampires until this Dracula crap. Just because we sell the idea to tourists doesn’t mean we actually had anything to do with it. The closest thing we have for a restless immortal soul is the fabled “strigoi” in which nobody believes anymore, not even the ultra religious people.

    I am so sick of internet idiots who actually believe there are vampires, zombies, werewolves,etc. NONE OF THESE REALLY EXIST, YOU IDIOTS!!
    Might as well believe in the Mayan 2012 calendar!

    The modern vampires have a new name:LGBT

    Vlad did have a killer mustache.

    I think that Elizabeth Báthory is the most interesting because, though it says she is one of the most well known, I’ve never heard of her. The fact that she is rumored to have killed so many people is fascinating in itself, but her supposed reason behind it intrigues me even more. She killed people to bathe in their blood? to make herself appear younger? That is some very interesting logic behind killing other humans.

    why is the preview a picture of Daehyun?

  • Erzebet Bathori

    After her husband died in battle, she became angry with her looks, as she was getting old. She became extremely vain. She grew up in the occult, her parents forced her to watch brutal deaths, as a young child. Her grandmother practiced witchcraft with her, in which what molded her as to what she was back in the 15th century. Her life fascinates me. I found her several years ago in the “Encyclopedia of Serial Killers” by Michael Jordan (no not the retired basketball player). After word got out that there was rotting bodies outside the castle walls & body parts mysteriously popping up from wild animals dragging them off, the people that she had owed money to, decided to investigate. They decided to dispose of her, so they would not be in debt to her any longer.

    This really relates to this season’s American Horror Story with the need for blood to survive from a good amount of characters.

  • Lauren Mangan

    These people may have been described as vampires but they took their crimes much further than just drinking blood in most cases. I find it ironic that one died of skin cancer since vampires are sensitive to sunlight.

  • Sammi DiGeronimo

    I really don’t believe in vampires…as much as I want to!! I do believe these people were just gruesome murderers.

  • Olivia K

    These people are mentally insane. I would not say they are vampires.

  • William Drake

    I want to know more about this Elizabeth Bathory. 80-650 people? Bathing in the blood of young peasant girls? This is one of those cases where fact is stranger than fiction.

  • Connor Lynch

    I wonder how many of these people who believed themselves to be vampires were mentally ill? Certainly, this would offer a better, safer explanation for their behavior. If vampires do exist, maybe society is not ready to know yet. Perhaps vampirism is in fact real and is something that modern science is still unable to explain.

  • Thomas Robinson

    Some of these people are just murderers that have gained a reputation of being bloodthirsty people. It all comes down to rumors that have grown as the years went by.

  • Salih Saritoprak

    Who else thought of american horror story when they read this?

  • Alexa V

    I had no idea that Elizabeth Bathory was actually considered a vampire…I thought she was just the thing that I was terrified of in 5th grade when my friends would go in the bathroom and try to get Bloody Mary to appear. Low key, still scared of that.

  • John Liber

    I always knew the legend existed of Vlad the Impaler being the real Dracula. That to me is easily the most believable.

  • Sydney K

    The Vampire rapists were the weirdest ones to me. Thought it was funny though when the author suggested that the skin cancer one had was caused by the sunlight. LOL

  • Dan Hennessey

    As I do believe no vampires ever existed, I do find it very interesting that Telsa is one this list. A very exclusive and smart man who contributed a lot to society seems like an odd inclusion.
