Castle Of Orthodox Christian Hero ,Vlad Tepes, "Dracula" , For Sale
The nations of Greece, Romania, Serbia, and Bulgaria resurrected themselves as if rising from the tomb after the long struggles for liberation from a foreign oppressor. Turkey’s legacy in the Balkans includes discriminatory laws prohibiting Orthodox Christians from walking on the same street as a Muslim, from wearing bright clothing, from reading and writing their native languages. Not to mention the merciless lack of lawful justice that left their women and children and even men prey to Turkish brutal rapes, almost never punished by the Turkish State. The Orthodox Christians were infidels, ‘gracious’, sub-humans to be used and abused.
A Byzantine-era crowned prince, named Vlad Tepes, who hailed from the province of Wallachia in Romania, was said to have made a fitting statement towards Turkish customs, when two Turkish emissaries of the Sultan visited Vlad in order to obtain five hundred Christian boys for the Janissaries. Vlad noted the emissaries did not show respect by removing their Turbans. The Turks replied that as Muslims they could not remove them for infidels. Prince Vlad ordered that their Turbans be nailed into their heads. This prince was named Dracula, "Son of The Dragon". Westerners weaned on Hollywood know Dracula, a resistance figure and a Balkan hero, as the gaudy Hollywood movie based on Irishman Bram Stoker’s book from 1897….
Dracula is a great warrior who once blinded an entire Turkish battalion but spared every hundredth man , so they could lead the blinded men back home to their Turk leaders. These are OUR historical leaders , whose legacy we must honor and keep.
