    Prince Charles is a descendant of Vlad the Impaler?

    Have you ever noticed something evil in the eyes of Prince Charles? If so it could be because the Prince of Wales may be descended from Count Dracula.

    Romania is exploiting the kinship between the Prince and the real Dracula – Romanian ruler Vlad the Impaler, to attract tourists.

    The Romanian National Tourist Office has released a promotional video and brochures, in which it uses the links between the British Royalty and Count Dracula to boost tourism to Transylvania and the rest of the country, The Daily Telegraph reports.

    Transylvania is best known as the land of Count Dracula, who in popular fiction drank his victims’ blood and could turn into a bat. Thousands of tourists visit the town of Castle Bran every year to see where the cruel Romanian ruler Vlad the Impaler lived. However it is also linked to British Royalty.

    “The genealogy shows I am descended from Vlad the Impaler, so I do have a bit of a stake in the country,” Prince Charles said in an interview last year.

    In the video the Prince “traces his ancestry back to Romania’s dark and distant past.” He speaks about his kinship with the historical Dracula – Vlad Tepes or Vlad the Impaler, the 15th century ruler of the Wallachian Kingdom, and with the deeds which prompted Bram Stoker’s Dracula novel. The Prince says in a book published in 1982 by Sir Iain Moncreiffe he is listed as a great grandson 16 times removed to Vlad Tepes.

    The promotional material featuring Prince Charles speaking of his relationship to the notorious Romanian ruler was launched at the World Travel Market that kicked off on Monday in London.

    “The link to the British Royal Family and the clear fondness the Royal Family has for the country will only help to promote the country across the Commonwealth and particularly in the UK,” The Daily Telegraph quotes Simon Press, from World Travel Market.

    Pretty crazy article if you know a little bit about the history of Vlad the Impaler who of course inspired "Bram Stoker's - Dracula".
    I think this also shows how far off the British family is on it's lineage, and are not the so-called pure bloodline that everyone thinks they are.
    "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered." - Thomas Jefferson

    Crap and here I was banking on the fact that the British royal family's blood-line was pure. Doh! Boy do I have egg on my face.
