- Blood Countess Bathory is likely a reference to the real life Elizabeth Báthory, a Hungarian Countess who lived from 1560 until 1614. She was arrested in 1610 for kidnapping and torture of young women (some estimates put the total at over 650 victims, although the "verified" count is closer to 80) and was subject to house arrest for the last 4 years of her life. She's entered into vampire folklore due to the unsubstantiated rumor that she bathed in the blood of virgins to maintain her youth.
