Blood Countess arm band
This is one of my creations I had made after watching a documentary on Historys true Vampires on the History Channel sometime back.
Heres a history note about the Countess: Elizabeth Báthory (Báthory Erzsébet in Hungarian, Albeta Bátoriová in Slovak, Alběta Báthoryová in Czech, Elżbieta Batory in Polish, 7 August 1560 21 August 1614), was a Hungarian countess from the renowned Báthory family. She is possibly the most prolific female serial killer in history and is remembered as the "Blood Countess" and as the "Bloody Lady of Čachtice", after the castle near Trenčín, at that time in Kingdom of Hungary, where she spent most of her adult life.
The Báthory family is famous for defending Hungary against the Ottoman Turks.
After her husband's death, she and four collaborators were accused of torturing and killing hundreds of girls and young women, with one witness attributing to them over 600 victims, though she was only convicted on 80 counts. In 1610, she was imprisoned in Čachtice Castle, where she remained bricked in a set of rooms until her death four years later. She was never formally tried in court.
The case has led to legendary accounts of the Countess bathing in the blood of virgins in order to retain her youth. These stories have led to comparisons with Vlad III the Impaler of Wallachia, on whom the fictional Count Dracula is partly based, and to modern nicknames of the Blood Countess and Countess Dracula.
