The invading sultan said "what can we do against a man such as this" and went home. A similar tactic was used by Truman in 1945.
Need reference. What is this about?
@Double A Ron , vlad the impaler (dracula) argueably the most feared monarch in history
@Double A Ron , Vlad the impaler fended off a foreign invasion using intimidation tactics (impaling people and poisoning wells), and succeeded, in spite of the fact that his own army was vastly inferior.
@Proactive Citizenry , if ever there was someone who was good at fighting wars, it was Vlad.
@Marida Cruz, well of course he’s a fück mothering vampire.
@Ray213, well there is that, if you choose to believe the more fictional aspects of his history.
@Double A Ron , He was an Orthodox Christian. If a Muslim came to his castle, he would ask them to remove their turban. This of course goes against Muslim tradition and most would refuse such a request. But if they refused to remove their turbans, Vlad would nail it to their heads.
@Marida Cruz, just so we both know, this is a reference the hellsing
@MrZaroff, that might be true, but Hellsing itself is a reference to both the actual Vlad Tepes, a man who actually existed, and the original legend of Dracula, which is itself based on the actual Vlad Tepes.
@zuisher , I wrote my doctorate thesis on psychological warfare throughout history. According to my research on vlad the impaler, he actually kidnapped many of of his victims, tortured them before impairing them, to give their faces a look of utter horror as a means of communicating just what he would do if he found you alive. The dead bodies were just for show to prove he would indeed kill any and all to protect his kingdom
@Proactive Citizenry , new hero. Swinging a djck instead of a stiick (rhyme like Eminem there). I'm just impressed. Know what school taught me...arkansas has a delta. And what a delta is. I forgot. But I can swap a transmission!
He impaled HIS people I though...
@GrimMrGosh, only those who committed sever crimes
Metal as fvck
Why do we need to worry about our castle being pregnant?
Ive been told i resemble Vlad the Impaler
@GunLovingMerican, is it because you love impaling men with your stick?
@Swolekage, maybe it’s because he’s dead and loving it.
Pics or we don't believe you
