Vlad III Dracula, most commonly known as Vlad the Impaler and due to his association with the universally famous creation of Bram Stoker, is a highly controversial historical personality. In Romania, he is regarded as a national hero; for some other cultures, the ruthless cruelty of his actions has earned him a criminal and sadistic reputation.

In any case, he was Voivode of Wallachia in a certainly fascinating period. During those times, the area was a hot spot, with constant fights and frictions among the local powers that tried to gain predominance, along with the incessant war against the Turks.

With such a background, there was a strong martial culture among the members of Wallachian nobility. Some of them even belonged to the Order of the Dragon, devoted to the fight against the Turks.
