Dracula (disambiguation)for other, similarly-named pages.
Frederick von Dracula was a count of Wallachia and a descendant of Vlad III. In 1897 he travelled to London to confront Bram Stoker about his intent to dishonour his family name with his new novel, which portrayed him as a blood-drinking monster and a gentleman of learning, taste and charity. He was carried away by bats and returned to Transylvania under instruction given by Florence Stoker. (COMIC: Bat Attack!)
Behind the scenes
The presence of the German article of nobility, Von, as well as the name Frederick, would indicate that he was on a branch of the family that intermarried with Central European nobility, most likely Austrian.
