Romanian Prince. Some people believe he was the inspiration for the fictional 'Dracula' character. Vlad Dracula was commonly known as Vlad "Tepes" (tepes means the impaler in Romanian) he was well known for impaling his enemies and collecting their blood in jars and having feasts near their bodies. He would dip his bread in these jars of blood and eat it. This site is the supposed burial place because in 1931 explorers dug up this site which according to Romanian legend he was buried in. But all they found were animal bones.
