"Dracula castel Sometimes fact and fiction become so closely intertwined that it is hard to separate them. The castle at Bran is a case in point. It is now popularly known as Dracula's Castle, in the same way that Sherwood Forest is popularly regarded as the home of Robin Hood, even though the connections between the site and the character are highly dubious. The evil vampire of the movies originates from a novel by Irish writer Bram Stoker. Written in 1897, his Dracula was inspired by a genuine, historical figure-Vlad Tepes (d. 1476), better known as Vlad the Impaler. Vlad also used the name Dracula (Son of Dracul), because his father was Vlad Dracul. Vlad was a suitably bloodthirsty model for the fictional character, but his links with the castle are tenuous at best. He may briefly have been a guest there; he may even have been imprisoned there, though it is equally possible that he never set foot in the place. None of these uncertainties discourages the tourists or the souvenir sellers, who find the castle's imposing appearance an admirable setting for the creepy legend. The origins of Bran Castle itself are uncertain. Some historians believe that it was built in the early thirteenth century by the Teutonic Knights (a military and religious order), but there is no documentary record of the structure before 1377, when it was identified as part of the border defenses between Wallachia and Transylvania. The castle has had several owners over the centuries, among them Mircea the Wise, Vlad's grandfather. In the 1920s it was the favorite home of Marie, the British-born Queen of Romania, and it remained in royal hands until 1948, when it was confiscated by the communist authorities. For many years the castle was used as a museum and attracted a continuous stream of visitors but, in 2006, it was returned to Marie's heirs."
