I’ve been trying to figure out what to write on this blog, but I haven’t made up my mind yet.
I would like to talk about innumerous things so I think I’ll do just that.
So maybe my most recent though is Elisabeth Bathery, a countess from the Hungary royalty, because I happened to see a documentary about vampires, unfortunately I caught it in the middle.
For those who do not know, Elizabeth was more than is described on the internet and on websites like Wikipedia, at least what I saw on that documentary showed much more than what I’ve read.
Like Vladimir, Elizabeth was one of the historical characters that inspired Bram Stocker on his “Dracula” book. She, in her decade time and far more, was the devil.
This is the 16th century we are talking about, there was so much discrimination and she managed, has a women form nobility, to get pregnant before she got married and she was hidden to keep the child a secret and give it away. She got married even though she was a lesbian, the other thing so much criticized by the church and god’s religion.
She was a human obsessed with beauty and youth so she had three personal maids that took care of her beauty -hair, nails, skin- so one day when one of the maid hurt her while doing her job and Elizabeth hit het and (in the movie) the ring she wearing cut the maid and her blood went to the Imperatriz’s hand and she spread it like if it was a cream being applied on the skin, and apparently, that was the moment that made it all happen.
Surrounded by her butler and those three maids, she started doing what she was to be known for.
The word was spread in the near villages that she, Elizabeth was giving free lessons for young (and since they are young they’re suppose to be virgins) girl so that they would learn how to be real ladies, that she was giving them etiquette classes, but the truth was that she was, indeed, killing them and extracting their blood so that she could bath in the virgins blood, sometime with the corpse in there has well, that she thought that it could give her eternal youth.
But just bathing in the blood wasn’t enough; she would drink it and even torture her maids like biting them in the harms and pulling out flesh. Her husband was the one who taught her innumerous ways of human torture like putting needles under someone’s nails and things of that sort.
She ended up killing hundreds of girls, with people suspecting about what she was doing, but none dared to stop her.
This went on for ten years and when she didn’t have any more poor girls she could kill, she committed a mistake, she went after a young women that was a nobler has well and killing her was her death has well, since the parents made sure justice was made, her accomplices were killed and since she couldn’t be killed she was sent to spend the rest of her like stuck, alone, in her own castle.
