After her death, many report the appearance of a creature who is attacking children in the area.

    What is the real story behind the prince who may have inspired the character Dracula? The name "Dracula" became popular in Romania after publication of Stoker's book. For example, some restaurants offer the exact meal Jonathan Harker ate. Many died in the process.

They then drape Lucy and her room with garlic —a strategy used to ward off vampires. The person that stood in the way of Dracula was Van Helsing that represented what was good and decent. John Polidori created the image of a vampire portrayed as an aristocratic man, like the character of Dracula, in his tale " The Vampyre " Vlad's father, governor of Transylvania, had been inducted into the Order of the Dragon about one year before.
