The rumours sourownding Vald Tepes and his barbaric habists such as kiling for plesure ir drinking blod were started by hungarian traders because they were not alowed to sell theyr goods in Valahia (Vald didnt't alow them this in order to boost roamnian trading).
it is from the tradesmen tales that Bram Stoker was inspired to whrite the book.
