To be picky, Vlad Dracul was the father of Vlad the Impaler.
'Dracul' is I believe the Romanian form of the honorific 'Dragon'
which was bestowed upon the original Vlad by the Teutonic Knights.
'Dracula' then means 'Son of Dracul' so Vlad Dracula translates to
Vlad Son of the Dragon, which is the man who so loved rammed rounded
oiled wooden poles up peoples anuses, jamming the other ends of the
poles into the ground, & leaving the people out in the sun to slowly die.
Truly a pleasant person. Now, what does this have to do with
Twin Peaks again?
