Thirteen Things about famous vampires
1…. Vlad Tepes Draculs (1431-1476 ) - aka "Count Dracula" Here's a link to the history of Count Dracula: http://www.vampires.monstrous.com/dracula_history.htm To the right is a picture of Count Dracula. This isn't exactly the image I have in my mind of a scary vampire.

3..... Erzsebet Bathory
4..... Rasputin
5..... St Germain
6..... Arnaud Paole
7..... Minor historical vampires
8..... Highgate Vampire
9.... Alucard (Hellsing)
10... Angel (Buffy and the Vampire Slayer) Now Angel (see to the right with Buffy) is more MY KIND of vampire. Yum!
11....Interview With The Vampire - Louis de Pointe du Lac (1994) (played by Brad Pitt) - Yum again! 12.... Selene - in Underworld played by Kate Beckinsale 13... Luke - in "Blessed Be" (Ashley Ladd's book www.ellorascave.com) Links to other Thursday Thirteens! 1. (leave your link in comments)

Brad Pitt was the only one I knew...I really don't do scary. I'm a big baby.

Interesting, but even if vampires existed Rasputin wasn't one. I think Karl Rove is, though.

I just finished reading The Historian, an excellent work of fiction about Vlad Tepes. Great answers!

Nicholas. I admit I got my list from another website. So if that was wrong, I'm wrong and I apologize.
