Prince Dracula and Transcarpathia


Name Of Authority Dracula famous all over the world thanks to the writer Bram Stoker. Everyone knows that he lived in the castles of Transylvania, on the territory of modern Romanians, and he was a vampire. But few people know that this is a real historical character who is directly related to Transcarpathia.

The maternal grandfather of Prince Vlad Dracula, whose name was Bogdan, was a relative of the kaftans of the comitates. Maramorosh and Ugochi, whose names were Balka and Draga. Bogdan’s older brother Alexander was a Prince of Moldavia, and married Ringaloy, who was the sister of the Lithuanian Prince Vytautas, who was a relative of the princes Of Koryatovicha. Fedir Koriatovych, helped to separate relatives of Prince Vlad Dracula’s middle name – Douga who left a significant mark in the history of Transcarpathia.

Bogdan he was married to the granddaughter of the Moldavian voivode – Latska. The latter was the son of the founder of the Moldavian Principality, also named Bogdan, who for some time lived in the Maramoroshchine in Transcarpathia, being in the status of a hostage Hungarian king Carl Robert.

Drag means “devil”in Romanian. Obviously, that this was the nickname of the Prince of Wallachia (in history, he is known as Vlad the Impaler). By indication the then written sources Vlad Tepes (Dracula) was a man of courage and evil, with a terrible temper and an even more terrible face, which was distorted by the scars received in numerous battles.

An example of the cruelty of Vlad Dracula can serve as a story. with the Turkish ambassadors. When they visited the Prince, they did not remove their turbans as a sign of respect. As a punishment for this, Vlad Dracula ordered the ambassadors to nail their turbans to their heads. The Turks were afraid Vlad Dracula as fire. His hatred of the Turks was due to the fact that he had a certain time was in Turkish captivity. In addition, his violent temper could be affected and the fact that his own father was killed in a power struggle in his immediate neighborhood environment.

There is a version that one of the many residences of Prince Dracula was located in the village of dragovo Khust district. They say that the village got its name from the bloodthirsty Prince. In addition, researchers pay attention to the Slavic name of the Prince. Maybe he was native Transcarpathian Ukrainian origin, not Romanian, as most researchers believe.
