Quote:Prince Charles is campaigning to save the forests of Transylvania, inspired by his ancestral links to Vlad the Impaler, the 15th century nobleman better known by his patronym, Dracula.
He claims a family connection to the area through Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia, who earned the sobriquet Vlad the Impaler thanks to his favoured method of torture and execution.
The total number of his victims is estimated in the tens of thousands, many killed by being impaled on huge metal stakes.
In a new documentary about the Carpathian mountains, Charles makes fun of his ancestral links to 'Count Dracula'.
'The genealogy shows I am descended from Vlad the Impaler, so I do have a bit of a stake in the country,' he quipped.

This article from 2006:

Prince Charles to buy property in homeland of relative 'Count Dracula'

Quote:The Prince is apparently looking to buy a property to promote sustainable tourism in the region, a Clarence House spokesman confirmed yesterday.

The proposed purchase - in the village of Viscri - would not be for Charles' personal use, but would be restored and rented out to tourists.

The Prince is patron of the Mihai Eminescu Trust, which works to restore the cultural heritage, economy and nature of Transylvania's Saxon villages and their surroundings.

The village where Charles plans to buy a property is also the headquarters of the trust.

In addition to restoring some 180 medieval houses and several churches, the charity has supported traditional rural technologies, such as the construction of wood-fired kilns for handmade bricks and tiles and organic farming.
