Do you think vampires might really exist or may have in the past? Read some of the evidence that I have researched in this article.

Vampires

I, recently, wrote about the Highgate Cemetery in London and that a vampire had been seen there. I have done some more research for more evidence of whether there is such a thing as vampires and I came across a couple of stories that I wanted to share.

Apollonius

This story is a tale that was talked about during the Greek and Roman times.

A philosopher called Apollonius of Tyana was at a wedding of a young man named Menippus and at the wedding, Apollonius observed the bride to be very beautiful. Eventually, Apollonius accused the wife of being a vampire. Later, the wife confessed that she was indeed a vampire. She said she was planning to marry Menippus, so that she could drink his fresh blood.

Elizabeth Bathory

There are more vampire tales that I have read about that are very eerie. One other story is of a real life bloodthirsty killer named Elizabeth Bathory who was a Countess from the renowned Hungarian Bathory family around the 16th century. Elizabeth Bathory was a mass killer who she and four accomplices killed hundreds of girls and young women. She, also, bathed in their blood believing it would keep her young. She is known as the Blood Countess or Countess Dracula. Can you believe that she was in fact a vampire?

Novels Based on Elizabeth Bathory

There are a few novels that have been written about Elizabeth Bathory that can be found on Amazon today. There are titles, such as, Elizabeth Bathory: The Blood Countess (a short story kindle edition), Elizabeth Bathory: A Memoire: As Told by Her Court Master, Benedict Deseo, The Infamous Lady: The True Story of Erzsebet Bathory, The Blood Countess: A Novel and The Countess: A Novel of Elizabeth Bathory. There are other books listed in Amazon, but the ones above are the most popular ones.

All the books are based on Elizabeth Bathory's life and her possibility of being a vampire. Her story is told based on how cruel she was to others. The book titled The Countess: A Novel of Elizabeth Bathory written by Rebecca Johns was published in 2010. This book is said to have a creepy feel to it and is written with a great setting. This book does sound more like the real truth in my opinion and I have been told it is a thrilling book to read, so I might be reading this one very soon.

So, have you read any of these books? What are your thoughts on this subject?

Awesome article. I've lived in London and the Highgate cementery and around may prompt the existence of them. Why no? it's only that they aren't probably like Hollywood portrayed them.

Yes, vampires exist. They're not like they're portrayed in Hollywood and it isn't blood they need. But they do, in fact, exist.

And, for those who want to call me nuts for thinking so, I don't care.

Denise, great article on vampires. I'm really not sure if they exist or not but I do know for a fact that very strange events take place here on earth. I just hope if they are among us that I don't meet one.
