Vlad III would choose any means to protect the independence of Walachia, becoming hated as a demon by the Turks. In the year of 1462. In order to oppose the 150,000 strong Turkish army with only 10,000 troops, Vlad III instructed the use of scorched-earth tactics and guerrilla warfare. On top of having the populace run away to the Carpathian Mountains, he ambushed the Turkish army after emptying even the capital. At that time, what laid in the surroundings of the capital of Bucharest, was the impaled form of over 20,000 Turkish soldiers.
A swarm of countless impaled corpses, towering on the surroundings of the Bucharest fortress. With such bizarreness and offensive smell, he completely crushed the morale of the valorous Turkish soldiers. It has been said that even the brave Mehmed II, who was called the ｢conqueror｣, withdrew his forces after stating ｢I do not fear any man, but a demon is another matter｣. At that time, the length of the impalement field was 3 kilometers, while the width was 1 kilometer. Even when Walachia was later occupied by the Ottoman Turkey Empire, its autonomy was continuously recognized because of this trauma.
Dracula was originally a title which he had claimed for himself, and it means ｢son of the dragon｣. This derives from his father, Vlad II, who was a knight of the Holy Roman Empire’s Order of the Dragon that called himself Dracul. Prince Vlad believed in the love of the Lord, and attempted to fulfill his responsibility as a noble by correcting injustice. However, the feudal lords who indulged in the wealth of the privileged class disliked his honorable poverty, and the warrior who saved the Christian world was punished by means of an artifice.
