Who would have thought that the ice heart of the cruel voivode of Wallachia #Vlad Țepeş was conquered? By the daughter of a weaver in the city of Brasov at that time.
Katharina is the name of the woman who received much tenderness from the one who entered the collective memory under the name of #Dracula.
From this love relationship that lasted over 20 years, five children were born.
When they met, she was only 17 years old, and the ruler was 34. It is said that from the moment he saw Katharina, Vlad Tepes completely forgot about the other adventures. He ordered for Katharine the most beautiful dresses, silk and lace from Venice and Flanders… and he was extremely jealous.
The 18th century Transylvanian chronicle shows that the idyll of Prince Vlad with the beautiful Katharina, created a revolt among the suitors at the hand of the girl, three of them coming from wealthy families of the Saxon community. Vlad wanted to marry Katharina, but the strictures of religion did not allow him. Although he failed to formalize the relationship with Katharina, he still had two more children – Hanna (b. 1463) and Sigismund (b. 1468).
Katharina remained close to #Dracula even after his fall from the throne in 1462, and #Vlad Tepes took care of all his descendants, as evidenced by the family’s 1850 land books.
The assassination of the voivode in 1477 put an end to the second reign and love between him and Katharina.
And the beautiful woman who had conquered Dracula until her death, returned to the monastery.
… a spectacular love story, according to the fascinating personality of #Vlad Tepes.
