Britain’s Prince Charles is a descendant of Dracula

I find the strangest things while roaming the Internet.

Dracula is an 1897 Gothic horror novel by Irish author Bram Stoker, which introduced the character of Count Dracula of Transylvania and established many conventions of subsequent vampire fantasy.

Stoker’s notes for Dracula show that the name of the count was originally “Count Wampyr”, but Stoker became intrigued by the name “Dracula” after reading William Wilkinson’s book An Account of the Principalities of Wallachia and Moldavia with Political Observations Relative to Them (London 1820). The name Dracula was the patronym (Drăculea) of the descendants of Vlad II of Wallachia, who took the name “Dracul” after being invested in the Order of the Dragon in 1431.

Dracula means “son of the devil” in Romanian.

Some historians believe that a historic figure, Transylvanian-born Vlad III Dracula, aka Vlad the Impaler, was the model for Stoker’s Count Dracula. The second son of Vlad Dracul, Vlad the Impaler massacred more than 100,000 Turkish warriors in battle. The vampire legend is said to have been inspired by his cruelty, brutality, and predilection for eating bread dipped in his victim’s blood.

The (UK) Telegraph reports, November 5, 2012, that Transylvania, synonymous with the legend of the vampire, should also be known as the ancestral home of the Prince of Wales, according to the Romanian National Tourist Office. Links between the British Royal Family and Vlad the Impaler are being exploited in an attempt to lure tourists to the eastern European country.

The Prince has made no secret of his love for Romania and is believed to travel there frequently. In 2006, he purchased a farmhouse in Viscri, a village in rural Transylvania, which is available as a guest house at certain times of the year.

Prince Charles himself appears in a video being used to promote the country in which he claims distant kinship with Vlad Tepes, the 15th–century Wallachian ruler on whom the Irish novelist Bram Stoker based his Dracula.

Prince Charles jokes in an interview first shown on satellite television in 2011: “Transylvania is in my blood. The genealogy shows I am descended from Vlad the Impaler, so I do have a bit of a stake in the country.” The video climaxes with a reference to the Prince of Wales, “who can trace his ancestry back to Romania’s dark and distant past”.

According to Royal Highness, a book published in 1982 by Sir Iain Moncreiffe, Prince Charles is a great grandson 16 times removed to Vlad the Impaler, his lineage traced back through his great grandmother Queen Mary, the consort of George V, to Vlad IV, the half brother of the notorious ruler.

It has been claimed that porphyria, an iron deficiency which is thought to lie behind the vampire myth, has run in the British Royal Family. One of the symptoms of cutaneous porphyria is sensitivity to sunlight — of burning and severe pain in skin exposed to sunlight.

Here’s the family tree:

Dracul is Romanian for the dragon — a serpent used in the Bible as a symbol of the Devil.

Maybe there really is something to conspiracy theorist David Icke’s notion of a reptilian ruling elite after all. LOL. (Note: Australia recently banned Icke from entering the country for his multi-city speaking tour.)

Stolen Valor: Prince Charles and his fake military service and medals

The term “stolen valor” refers to military imposters — individuals who lie about their military service.

In the United States, the Stolen Valor Act of 2013 makes it a crime for a person to fraudulently claim military service or military awards and medals specified in the Act, with the intention of obtaining money, property, or other tangible benefit. The awards include the Medal of Honor, Distinguished Service Cross, Silver Star, Purple Heart, Combat Action Ribbon or Medal, and more.

If Prince Charles, 69, were an American, he would be arrested for stolen valor — pretending to military service, ranks and awards that he had not earned.

According to Wikipedia, this is Prince Charles’ military service:

  • Royal Air Force training as a jet pilot in 1971.
  • After a 6-week course in the Royal Naval College Dartmouth, he served on the guided missile destroyer HMS Norfolk (1971–1972) and the frigates HMS Minerva (1972–1973) and HMS Jupiter (1974).
  • In 1974, he joined 845 Naval Air Squadron, operating from HMS Hermes.
  • In 1976, he took command of the coastal minehunter HMS Bronington as captain for his last 10 months of active service in the navy.

Altogether, Prince Charles served in two branches of the UK military: the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy. His entire military service lasted just five years, from 1971 to 1976. The highest rank he attained was Captain of the coastal mine-sweeper HMS Bronington. He never saw war and never served in combat.

And yet, as you can see in his pic above, the future king of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth realms (including Canada, Australia and New Zealand), sports a chestful of distinguished and combat medals on his military uniform, including:

  • Five-star ranks in all three services: Army Field Marshall, Admiral of the Fleet, and Marshal of the Royal Air Force.
  • The Order of the Garter, Britain’s highest medal of chilvary.
  • The Order of Merit, for distinguished service in the armed forces.
  • The Order of the Bath, usually given to senior military officers.
  • Medals celebrating his mom, Queen Elizabeth’s coronation, and her Silver, Golden, and Diamond Jubilees, which have nothing to do with the military or combat.

In a blistering article on October 15, 2018, the National Enquirer quotes an unnamed “insider”:

“Charles is making a mockery of every soldier, sailor and airman who did go into battle for their country, many of whom paid the ultimate price with their lives. His own father, Prince Philip, served in World War II and his brother, Prince Andrew, saw combat in the Falklands War. But Charles is a joke. He’s nothing but a clown prince. He should be ashamed of himself chatting to real veterans while he steals their valor with fake medals.

But the truth is he was promoted to those [five-star] ranks by his mother, Queen Elizabeth, in 2012. She previously elevated to four-star ranks for his 58th birthday in 2006. Clearly, Mommy had to give him lots of medals because he never won any. He’s a pathetic imposter.”

Why the Brits put up with Prince Charles and the corrupt monarchy is a mystery. They must like being useful idiots.
