Dracula character was created in 1897 by Irish writer Bram Stalker. He chose Transylvania as the setting, one of the 3 large regions of Romania. The association between Count Dracula, the vampire imagined by the author, and the historical character Vlad Tepes the Impaler-Dracula, who spent his childhood in Transylvania, is due to the bloodthirsty and punitive character of the voivode. The popular nickname "Tepes" (Impaler) was due to the brutal habit of the Walachian voivode of applying capital punishment by impalement, while the other nickname "Dracula" (meaning Devil's son in Slovanian) was inherited by his father, Vlad Dracul (the Devil).
