Immortal Trivia

Did you know...

 

Prince Charles of Great Britain, Prince of Wales, is thought by some historians to be a direct descendant of Vlad III the Impaler (1431-1476), Prince of Wallachia, who is often credited for being the namesake (and partially an inspiration) of Count Dracula. Vlad's surname was Drakulya, which means "son of the dragon." Order of the Dragon, a violent, chivalric Christian society for nobles. In Romanian, dracul can mean "dragon," "great snake," or "devil."

 

That's pretty cool, if you ask me.
