If you are talking about the life size portrait, that is not a crown he was wearing. It was a noble (boyar) hat. I am not sure if it was a "one of a kind" but it followed pretty standard make up of the time. Vladislav was a political prisoner (guest who is not free to leave) at the time and had been...

I'm planning to put out a more detail edition late this year.

Nope. I wrote a book about Vladislav III and I was approached by someone claiming to be in the movie business wanting to look at it when finished. Never heard from him since about a year before the book was done, give or take a little.

They are more then likely Captain Save-a-hoes or control freaks. California is loaded with people like that, especially in the housing management and government office business.

That sounds about right, though I still need to check. That woodcut came from Saxon propaganda around his time, so if the spelling was part of the original woodcut, then that's probably it. The breaking of the words adds up too. "Dracul" is Latin symbolic for "Draco" (dragon in Latin slang, there is...

IN THE NAME OF THE SOVIET UNION!!

Take it from someone who's been around the country. California is like a whole other country compared to most states.

Though I realize the vampire stuff got some attention to this guy that may have otherwise disappeared in to the pages of history, it's quite obvious that the vampire nonsense has made the public image of Vladislav III as fictitious as the vampire. Those who pay attention to the real man usually do b...

I'll look it up later (you may need to remind me) but I have it write down somewhere exactly how it was spelled in his time by him and his people. It's a little weird. Something like Dracwerlya.

This isn't the first time I've heard of him. He sounds like a really cool guy.

Yep. American's often talk bad about Romanians, but I have yet to meet one that isn't cool and lovable as can be, the webmaster included, who I got to meet in person once. Then again, people who grew up in oppressive regimes tend to be pretty lovable, and as we all know, the Romanians have been thro...

Interesting stuff. I plan to visit Petrograd some day. I wonder if there are any interesting fortresses over there.
They have some of the most beautiful churches on earth. I am really looking forward to visiting Split Blood while there.

Back when big battles were still going on, we had a few cases of troops home from the war going nuts and mowing people down. It was much more common in Viet Nam. Not much during WW II though.
Kinda makes you wonder of the: "what am I fighting for" notion has anything to do with it.

There is no true Latin word for Dragon. The closest thing is Latin slang (not in the dictionary): Draco. Since the Webmaster's native language is Romanian, he can probably be better help here, but my understanding is that all the Romanian, Saxon and Hungarian words based on it differ by the nature o...
