Some elements of the anecdotes were later added to Russian stories about Ivan the Terrible of Russia. , Matthias Corvinus recognized Vlad as the lawful prince of Wallachia, but he did not provide him military assistance to regain his principality. He is often considered one of the most important rulers in Wallachian history and a national hero of Romania..

You know that King Matthias has sent me and when I came to Țara Bârsei the officials and councilors of Brașov and the old men of Țara Bârsei cried to us with broken hearts about the things which Dracula, our enemy, did; how he did not remain faithful to our Lord, the king, and had sided with the [Ottomans].  Ignoring the king's command, Vlad joined Murad II who came to Wallachia at the head of his army in summer 1438, serving the sultan as his guide. He ordered that women be impaled together with their suckling babies on the same stake. His face and chin were shaven, but for a moustache. The expression Dracula, which is now primarily known as the name of a fictional vampire, was for centuries known as the sobriquet of Vlad III. Only many bones and jaws of horses. Born an illegitimate son of Mircea I of Wallachia, he spent his youth at the court of Sigismund of Luxembourg, who made him a member of the Order of the Dragon in 1431 (hence his sobriquet). Then he had the women's breasts cut off and put the babies inside headfirst; thus he had them impaled together.  Hunyadi placed Vladislav on the throne of Wallachia.  He regained his throne between March and September 1443. Vlad began a purge among the Wallachian boyars to strengthen his position. He remained a folk hero in the region for his efforts against Ottoman encroachment. Vlad’s cruelty was renowned, even during his own lifetime.  Their brother (Vlad Dracul's third son), Radu the Fair, was born before 2 August 1439. Mehmed launched a campaign against Wallachia to replace Vlad with Vlad's younger brother, Radu. And he said that a man who had done such things was worth much.

As he was old enough to be a candidate to the throne of Wallachia in 1448, his time of birth would have been between 1428 and 1431.  Bonfini wrote that Vlad's head was sent to Mehmed II. Vlad the Impaler, in full Vlad III Dracula or Romanian Vlad III Drăculea, also called Vlad III or Romanian Vlad Țepeș, (born 1431, Sighișoara, Transylvania [now in Romania]—died 1476, north of present-day Bucharest, Romania), voivode (military governor, or prince) of Walachia (1448; 1456–1462; 1476) whose cruel methods of punishing his enemies gained notoriety in 15th-century Europe.  During the ensuing negotiations, Vlad demanded the expulsion or punishment of all Wallachian refugees from Brașov.  Deleanu's Țiganiada (Gypsy Epic) (which was published only in 1875, almost a century after its composition) presented Vlad as a hero fighting against the boyars, Ottomans, strigoi (or vampires), and other evil spirits at the head of an army of gypsies and angels.  Vlad promised that the merchants of Sibiu could freely "buy and sell" goods in Wallachia in exchange for the "same treatment" of the Wallachian merchants in Transylvania. , The Cantacuzino Chronicle was the first Romanian historical work to record a tale about Vlad the Impaler, narrating the impalement of the old boyars of Târgoviște for the murder of his brother, Dan. Rosetti reported: "Under the tombstone attributed to Vlad there was no tomb. By signing up for this email, you are agreeing to news, offers, and information from Encyclopaedia Britannica.  However, Albert of Istenmező, the deputy of the Count of the Székelys, had recommended in mid-August that the Saxons recognize Radu. , In May, Vlad asked the burghers of Brașov to send craftsmen to Wallachia, but his relationship with the Saxons deteriorated before the end of the year.  Vlad styled himself "Lord and ruler over all of Wallachia, and the duchies of Amlaș and Făgăraș" on 20 September 1459, showing that he had taken possession of both of these traditional Transylvanian fiefs of the rulers of Wallachia. ... [H]e captured all the merchants of Brașov and Țara Bârsei who had gone in peace to Wallachia and took all their wealth; but he was not satisfied only with the wealth of these people, but he imprisoned them and impaled them, 41 in all. Vlad broke into Wallachia with Ottoman support in October, but Vladislav returned and Vlad sought refuge in the Ottoman Empire before the end of the year.  For instance, Stoker wrote that Dracula had been of Székely origin only because he knew about both Attila the Hun's destructive campaigns and the alleged Hunnic origin of the Székelys.  In a letter written late in 1445 to the townspeople of Brașov, Vlad complained that Wallachian merchants were arrested in Transylvania, although he had left his "little children to be butchered for Christian peace so that [he] and [his] country [could] be subjects" of the king of Hungary.  According to historian John Jefferson, Vlad held Hunyadi in captivity because he wanted to hand him over to the sultan. , The stories about Vlad made him the best-known medieval ruler of the Romanian lands in Europe.  Stephen wanted to secure Wallachia for a ruler who had been an enemy of the Ottoman Empire, because "the Wallachians [were] like the Turks" to the Moldavians, according to his letter.  He was portrayed among the witnesses of Saint Andrew's martyrdom in a 15th-century painting, displayed in the Belvedere in Vienna.

 He began a purge against the boyars who had participated in the murder of his father and elder brother, or whom he suspected of plotting against him. In February 1462, he attacked Ottoman territory, massacring tens of thousands of Turks and Bulgarians. Hunyadi launched a military campaign against the Ottomans in the autumn of 1448, and Vladislav accompanied him.  Almost no information is known about the life of another illegitimate son, Mircea.  Vlad mustered an army of 4,000–6,000 strong and placed it under the command of his son, Mircea. During this period, anecdotes about his cruelty started to spread in Germany and Italy.  He was held in captivity in Gallipoli.
, In 1475, Gabriele Rangoni, Bishop of Eger (and a former papal legate), understood that Vlad had been imprisoned because of his cruelty.
Vlad was released before the end of the year but was forced to leave his two young sons as hostages in the Ottoman court.  In January 1476 John Pongrác of Dengeleg, Voivode of Transylvania, urged the people of Brașov to send to Vlad all those of his supporters who had settled in the town, because Corvinus and Basarab Laiotă had concluded a treaty.  He described Vlad as "a man of unheard cruelty and justice". in English from Illinois State University in 2005.  He intervened in the fight for the Moldavian throne in favor of Roman II of Moldavia in July 1447.

Vlad was the second son of Vlad II Dracul. It often has been thought that Stoker based the title character of Dracula on Vlad.  The last of the four charters also referred to their younger brother, Radu. His penchant for impaling his enemies on stakes in the ground and leaving them to die earned him the name Vlad the Impaler (Romanian: Vlad Țepeș). , The Saxons confiscated the steel that a Wallachian merchant had bought in Brașov without repaying the price to him. The sultan's army entered into the area of the impalements, which was seventeen stades long and seven stades wide.  Having failed to attack the sultan's camp, Vlad and his retainers left the Ottoman camp at dawn.  He must have returned to Hungary before 3 July 1456, because on that day Hunyadi informed the townspeople of Brașov that he had tasked Vlad with the defence of the Transylvanian border. You must come, O dread Impaler, confound them to your care.Split them in two partitions, here the fools, the rascals there;Shove them into two enclosures from the broad daylight enisle 'em,Then set fire to the prison and the lunatic asylum.  However, Hunyadi concluded a three-year truce with the Ottoman Empire on 20 November 1451, acknowledging the Wallachian boyars' right to elect the successor of Vladislav II if he died.
 Not long after, he moved to Moldavia, where Bogdan II (his father's brother-in-law and possibly his maternal uncle) had mounted the throne with John Hunyadi's support in the autumn of 1449.  The town had been deserted, but the Ottomans were horrified to discover a "forest of the impaled" (thousands of stakes with the carcasses of executed people), according to Chalkokondyles..  Stoker had his attention drawn to the blood-sucking vampires of Romanian folklore by Emily Gerard's article about Transylvanian superstitions (published in 1885).
