Countess Elizabeth Bathory

Elizabeth Bathory was a Hungarian countess in the 1500s and early 1600s. She was rumoured to have murdered and tortured several young women and girls, including bathing in their blood to maintain her eternal youth. 😱

Were these facts or merely slander to discredit a rich noblewoman who had amassed too much power? We’ll never know for sure, but her legend has survived the centuries, and she is often depicted in horror media as a female counterpart to Dracula. 🦇

I gave her a much more revealing outfit than she would have actually worn, because, you know — sexy vampires and all that!
