Vampire Princess – Synopsis:
An aristocratic demon hunting for fresh human lifeblood, who strikes unsuspecting mortals at night – everyone knows the grim story of Count Dracula. A legend from medieval Romania? Interpreted by a writer of horror stories in Victorian England? Now archaeologists, historians and forensic scientists can reveal the truth: The vampire story as we know isn’t modelled on a medieval count from Transylvania. But on the fate of a Bohemian princess from the early 18th century. The vampire princess not only inspired horror story writers. She offers a fascinating insight into a time where vampires were something real in the world of human ideas.
