>>25833 He got fucked by his cousin Mathew. Lead to him being imprisoned by the turkish. Had rough pollicies and it is considered one of the bloodiest in the history of the romanian people. His cousin Steven the Great was actually the bloodshedding tard...but he covered that up by building monasteries and shit.... Had nothing toddo with dracula, never led Transilvania...he was assigned to rule the ,,Romanian country,, as it was called back then when Romania was divided in 3: Moldova, Transilvania, The romanian country
>>25833 Fought for the independence of the romanian people. Tried to end the hungarian opression, kept the southern border where it was...made safe trading routes....was based af like all the romanian leaders back then.
>>25833 Owned a cool moustache Sticked hugeass sticks up turkis asses for the keks, butn the turkish camps in Targoviste and showed them how stupid they are when they began to fight one eachother in the dark like mongolshiteaters
>>26875 He wasn't really evil. He was righteous with a hint of evil..but towards the wrongdoers. Stefan the great was the real asshole. Had 12 wives dozens of illegitimate kids, built monasteries every time he won a fight ...real assole. Also while Vlad was trying to rise to the throne he pretended he doesn;t know about it...Later when The Impala got imprisoned by the turks it took him 2 years to start doing sth about it..just cause he was a asshole. Moldavians loved steven..still do
>>25833 There's a cool Romanian movie about him. Vlad Tepes.
He was a pretty cool guy, he actually cared about all of his people rather than himself and his own, despite his reputation I actually consider him ahead of his time. The responsibility he felt towards his subjects was remarkable and his punishment of impalement was actually fair in that he made all equal in death well before the French with their guillotines. Nobles, enemy soldiers and peasants all went out the same way under Tepes, a very progressive idea.
>>27335 You're looking at it from a modern view though. Vlad had the massive weight of the ottoman empire bearing down on Wallachia, he new he couldn't face them on the field so he had to make them leave through other ways, impaling is undeniably cruel, but the night attack and resulting impalings, for example was an ingenious way of defeating the ottomans without shedding rivers of Wallachian blood.
steamrolled the turks through pshychological warfare, died betrayed by his semi-romanian hungarian matthew who lived a lavish life and needed more money from the pope so he made vlad look like an ally to the turks and had him imprisoned.
>>27786 >>27823 Uh, we might never actually know the level of his cruelty. The german merchants spread those rumors of the supposed high cruelty that Vlad displayed in order to ruin his image in the West.
>>27884 Can't be rumors, it's quite obvious that his contemporaries feared him more than anyone who has ruled Romania before or since. The Sultan was a ruthless tyrant who terrified his own people and even he was scared out of his wits.
>>28903 Yeah, but Vlad still impaled a lot of people by those standards. He went out of his way to do so in great numbers. Coming to those forests of the impaled must have been terrible with the stench of the dead being everywhere, insects crawling all over the place and birds scavenging.
It was a great idea though. It scared the shit out of the Turks.
