June 17, 1462

On June 17, 1462, Vlad Dracula, also known as the Impaler, attacked and tried to assassinate the Ottoman Sultan, Mehmed the Conqueror. He failed and retreated from his country of Wallachia to Hungary, where Matthias Corvinus, the Hungarian king had him imprisoned. Contrary to popular opinion, Vlad was not a vampire at the time and he wasn’t leading an army of vampires against the werewolf army of Mehmed the Conqueror. Although if he had been a vampire, the werewolves would have kicked his ass.
