Discovery Channel's The Most Evil Men in Hostory - Vlad the Impaler
This is the third documentary that I wanted from the series.The previous ones were Rasputin and Ivan The Terrible.
The first two episodes of the series was far from being informative but this one was better.
Vlad's father's nameDracul means Dragon in Romanian language hence the name Dracula means son of Dracul/Dragon.
Vlad, together with his brother was handed to the Ottomans by their father as an insurance policy to support his treaty agreement with the Turks. The Ottomans trained Vlad to be the man after his father which he did but later he turned his back to the Turks, and punished for sure :)
