Regarding your information on Vlad III,
his surname was not Draculea, that was a nickname pertaining to his father’s title ‘Dracul’ (devil/dragon), draculea meaning “son of the dragon/devil.
Surnames were not a common thing in vlad’s time so he was known as Vladd III of Wallachia.
Kind regards,

Thank you for your comment. Indeed, surname is not the correct term for “Draculae” which originated from his father’s membership in the Order of the Dragon. The text in our article will be revised to clarify the name. Thank you again for taking the time to help make NWE a valuable information resource.
