Elizabeth Bathory was the macabre niece of Stephen Bathory a.k.a The Prince of Transylvania from 1571 to 1575.
Cruelty must have been a family tradition: Stephen's son Gabriel was driven out of the country, then murdered because of his acts of cruelty.
Elizabeth's acts of cruelty went unnoticed for years.
She is believed to have killed over 600 virgins and bathed in their blood because she believed their blood would keep her from aging. Once this was discovered, because of her nobleness, it was unlawful to put her to death. She was sentenced to life imprisonment in her torture chamber and stonemasons were brought to wall up the windows and doors of the with the Countess inside. They left a small hole through which food could be passed. She remained here for the rest of her days.
All accounts of vampires sucking blood and becoming younger, and versions of vampires including Bram Stokers "Dracula" have been traced back to the examining the story, life and rituals of Countess Elizabeth Bathory.

Now that you've had your lesson in history, I present to you in honor of the Late Elizabeth....

Vintage Ornate Gothic Victorian Scroll elements have been paired with gorgeous Vermillion red faceted glass Renaissance beads.
Round brass hooks finish these off to 2 1/2"
Enjoy!
These are one of a kind!
