Have Researchers Found The Tomb Of DRACULA?

Is this Dracula's final resting place?

16th century headstone unearthed in Naples could belong to Vlad the Impaler

Headstone found in same graveyard in which Dracula's daughter is buried.

Grave is covered in images and symbols of the House of the Transylvanian Count Vlad Tepes, the so-called Dracula, was thought to have died in battle.
But researchers now suspect he was taken prisoner, ransomed to his daughter, by then safe in Italy, and buried in a church in Naples.



He has cast a shadow over the craggy Carpathian mountains for centuries.
But the remains of the real-life Dracula are today to be found not in the Romanian mountains but in Italy, according to new research.
Count Vlad Tepes, the so-called Dracula, was thought to have died in battle. But scholars from the University of Tallinn say they have discovered documentary evidence that he was in fact taken prisoner, ransomed to his daughter - by then safe in Italy - and buried in a church in Naples.

And a newly uncovered headstone in Naples' Piazza Santa Maria La Nova, in the same graveyard as his daughter and son-in-law, could be his final resting place, they say.

Born in 1431, the notorious count was part of a noble family that was itself part of the Order of the Dragon, which was engaged in fighting the expansion of the Ottoman Empire into Europe.
His father was nicknamed Dracul, meaning 'Dragon' so the young Vlad became Dracula, or 'son of Dragon'.
In 1476 Dracula disappeared in battle. While some sources have claimed that he died, the researchers claim he was in fact imprisoned by the Turks, who hauled him away in chains.


His daughter Maria was meanwhile brought to the Neapolitan court, whose ruling family was allied with her own family, where she was adopted and eventually married to a Neapolitan nobleman.
Documents show that Maria in fact paid a ransom to the Turks for her father, who was then brought to Naples, the historians say.
Student Erika Stella, investigating the cloister of Santa Maria Nova in Naples for her thesis, discovered the incongruous grave and returned with historians who undertook months of research.
Medieval history scholar Raffaello Glinni said that the 16th century tomb is covered in images and symbols of the House of the Transylvanian 'Carpathians', not in keeping with the tomb of an Italian nobleman.
‘When you look at the bas-relief sculptures the symbolism is obvious’, he told Neapolitan newspaper Il Mattino.
'The dragon means Dracula and the two opposing sphinxes represent the city of Thebes also called Tepes. In these symbols, Dracula Tepes, the very name of the count is written,’ he said.
The researchers have now applied for official permission to investigate the grave.

Re: Have Researchers Found The Tomb Of DRACULA?

And it started thanks to a student (Erika Stella) who was working on her graduation thesis: she took some photos and noticed something strange, so she involved experts and researchers from half Europe: soon some documents allegedly confirming that it's the right place to dig in will be made public. Cool story, thanks

Kelsee is far from a "smarmy" fuck.
Gata, on several occasions was able to add more to stories and as far as I know there is nothing wrong with that.

I appreciate your piece here because I like history and have always wondered if his body would be found. But, if every person who starts a thread around here wants a medal or a prize, there's no point. She did "thank" your post.
