Elizabeth Bathory, a condessa sangrenta. Era cruel com seus servos, ganhando a fama de ser "vampira" por morder e dilacerar a carne de suas criadas. Algumas de suas maldades incluía despir suas criadas e joga-las na neve, banhando-as com água fria, congelando-as até a morte. No verão, deixava a vítima amarrada e banhada em mel, para os insetos devorarem-na viva. Dizem que costumava se banhar com sangue em busca da juventude eterna.
