Elizabeth Báthory is one of the most prolific serial killers in all of history.
She was born into nobility and was highly educated but also very vain.
One day, infuriated, Elizabeth struck one of her servant girls so hard that some blood dripped from her face onto Elizabeth’s hand and she immediately thought that her skin took on a glowing freshness of her young maid.
Elizabeth believed she had found the secret of eternal youth. After this, women were abducted and hung upside down, while they were still alive and their throats were slit to prepare Elizabeth’s bath.
The Countess of Transylvania and four collaborators were accused of torturing and killing hundreds of girls, with one witness attributing to them over 650 victims, though the number for which they were convicted was 80. Elizabeth herself was neither tried nor convicted.
I used to have this statuette. When I was a kid. I remember my dad bought it for me from the local comic book store because I thought the girl looked really cool and he put it in my room. One day I brought it to show and tell and told all of my classmates that this was going to be me one day, bathing in their blood and named the three heads after three annoying girls in my class. My teacher called my parents and my dad couldn’t stop laughing while my mum just yelled at him for buying me the stupid thing in the first place. Sadly, it was destroyed in a house flood. ((It fell off a shelf and a heavy box was pushed onto during the flood. It made me really sad.)) This is why no one should look up to me. I’m a terrible person.
