Elizabeth Bathory, the Real Life Vampire (?)

October 23, 2012 at 12:01 am (Episode, Halloween, Holiday, Podcast) (, , , , , , , )

A Countess with ties to Transylvania, and some thought of her as real-life vampire? I am shocked. Skyler and Brooke Danger suggested on Facebook that I talk about her. Make suggestions also on Google+ and Twitter @HalloweenHaunt. And of course at  HalloweenHaunt.wordpress.com.

Elizabeth Bathory has quite the web presence. Check out the Weird Encyclopedia, Wikipedia, and her own site, ElizabethBathory.com.

    I made a tombstone a few years ago of Elizabeth Bathory, complete with her photo in a makeshift frame that I fused to the top of the stone. Love it…and love telling her story to young children (not too young…LOL)

      mmadonna,

      How lovely, although I believe you may mean a photo of her portrait. She was supposedly a comely lady. I glossed over some of the more horrific elements of the story so that tweens and young teens could enjoy her life’s tale.

      –HH
