The Order of the Dragon was a Christian society started by Vlad the Great, and of which Vlad III was a member. Its name was a reference to Vlad the Great himself, who was personally known as "the Dragon". (AUDIO: Son of the Dragon)
Behind the scenes Edit
The brief description given in Son of the Dragon is historically true, but misleading because of how much it doesn't reveal. In the real world, the order wasn't a Wallachian invention, but a wider, pan-European group of nobles who arrayed themselves against the Turks. In the DWU, though — or at least as portrayed in Son of the Dragon — it comes across as something that Vlad the Great dreamt up.
