Un studiu serios al personalitatii si al mitului.
Nu se stie cind s-a nascut Vlad Tepes, cum s-a incheiat ultima domnie si se stie foarte putin despre ce s-a intimplat intre timp.
Autorul reuseste sa creeze o imagine a epocii si un credibil portret al domnitorului folosind putinele surse primare existente si tragind ce concluzii se pot trage din surse tertiare.
Am acceptat mare pare din concluziile lui.
Am o mari probleme cu:
- concluzia toate povestile despre brutalitatea lui excesiva nu sint decit

sice jsem se nedozvěděla, JAK PŘESNĚ zemřel, ale první část zakončil autor velmi hezky:
s. 11O
...ukončil život jednoho z nejstatečnějších knížat střední a jihovýchodní Evropy ve středověku. Draculovy hrdinské činy, které se ještě za jeho života staly legendami, se šířily po světě a získaly mu reputaci téměř nezpochybnitelnou a obnovovanou dodnes.
I když...
Ale místo jeho poslední odpočinku je dodnes nezodpovězeným tajemstvím, stejně jako jeho PROBLEMATICKÁ (?!) existence.
Co tím chtěl SA říci?

“Fara indoiala, Vlad Dracul va fi purtat mereu in jurul gatului colanul de aur al ordinului cruciat de care facea parte. Dragonul de pe pieptul lui a impresionat negresit imaginatia contemporanilor, care i-au faurit supranumele ,,Draculea", intalnit intaia oara in corespondenta dusmanului sau, marele boier Albul. In orice caz, la origine, dragonului voievodului Vlad, tatal lui Tepes, nu a fost <>, cum s-a afirmat recent. Cuvantul slav ,,draku" se traduce de fapt prin : sarpe, balaur, zmeu, iar cel latin ,,draco" tot prin balaur. Era tocmai intruchiparea plastica de pe blazonul Ordinului Dragonului, asa cum o vedeau romanii. Forma romaneasca ,,Draculea" este echivalenta numai si numai in acest sens. [...] Numele ,,Dracula'' constituie aproape SINGURUL ELEMENT COMUN legendei din a doua jumatate a secolului XV si celei nascute la sfarsitul secolulu XIX, de sub pana scriitorului irlandez Bram Stoker. Acesta insa, cum se va vedea, a preferat sa-i accentueze valentele simbolice ale raului.” 0 likes
