Here is some stuff on Vlad Dracul / Vlad Tepes:
Vlad Dracul (the devel) was the father of the other one. Tepes is
derivated from Teapa (sharp pole for impaling people). Both not
very nice people, but not unusually so for the time.
The connection with vampires and Transylvania, is solely down to Bram
Stoker and is *fiction*.
