Thumb elizabeth bathory serial killer

Elizabeth bathory ~The most blood thirsty woman ever resided

Countess Elizabeth Báthory de Ecsed (Báthory Erzsébet in Hungarian) is recorded as being one of the most prolific serial killers in history, as documented by her entry in the Guinness Book of Records, and is estimated to have brutally tortured and killed between 80 and 650 young women between 1585 and 1610. She was imprisoned in 1610 within Csejte Castle, now in Slovakia, where she remained immured in a set of rooms until her death four years later. The gruesome tale of Elizabeth Bathory has become part of national folklore and the subject of numerous plays, books, and movies. She is often compared with Vlad III the Impaler of Wallachia, on whom the fictional Count Dracula is partly based, and has become known as The Blood Countess. But in recent years, the truth behind these tales has been brought into question and some scholars now argue that Elizabeth Báthory was no murderer, but rather the victim of political betrayal.

Elizabeth Báthory (1560 – 1614 AD) was a countess from the renowned Báthory family of nobility in the Kingdom of Hungary and cousin of the Hungarian noble Stefan Báthory, King of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and Duke of Transylvania. She was born on a family estate in Nyírbátor, Hungary, and spent her childhood at Ecsed Castle.


At the age of 15, Elizabeth was married to Ferenc Nádasdy, the son of Baron, in what was likely a political arrangement within the circles of the aristocracy. Nádasdy's wedding gift to Báthory was his home, Csejte Castle. However, only three years after their marriage, Nádasdy became the chief commander of Hungarian troops, leading them to war against the Ottomans, and in 1604, Ferenc died at the age of 48, reportedly due to an unknown illness or a battle wound. During the war, and after Ferenc’s death, Elizabeth was left to run the Nádasdy estate, including management of its defence, business affairs, and upkeep, which would have been no easy task. It was during these years that Elizabeth was said to have gone on a brutal killing spree.

@Vishal i am a murderer but only if looks can kill 😂😂😂

Exactly my point she was powerful women...all they power was in her husband and her hands...and that means uske political rivals bhi honge...why she was only convicted after her husband's death, and the sudden death of her husband is also questionable...like it can be a political murder, to make her alone plot everything against her...

bcoz se was a powerful woman out there ...nd all the laws were in hands of her nd her husband.After the death of her husband she was convicted of murder charges of about 600 girls ...nd put in the jail where she died after 4 years.

may be man...lekin 600 ladkiyan...soch k bahar hai bhai ....bola to ye bhi jata hai that wo un ladkiyon ka khoon ek bathtub m dalkar nahati thi ...ye sochke tht she will become young by doing that....

@Nikhil Agarwal

... You got some really strong points man but don't know why am just nit ready to judge her as a murderer...

May be she was psychopath

There are many cases related to psychopath serial killers

May be she was one of them

May be her husband was trying to save her all that time

Or 

May be she is the one who killed her own husband

@ahmed reza

maybe u were related to her in your last zanm @ahmed reza

From your previous comments am sure you are only judging the story from the political point of view

Or

Do you suddenly got sympathy for a serial killer who died 400+ years ago? **silent sarcastic laugh**

may be u have vry strong reasons to give her the title of murderer @nikhil 


Its my favourite genre.. horror !

@Vishal or may be,

I was Elizabeth bathory of house Báthory Erzsébet...in my last zanam

you may be ri8

actually I wanted to say that only but ..didnt wanted to give u a name of a murderer

the title is so against women
You being so judgmental

A nobel lady turned into a killing machine...

I can bet this was just a political drama against her...my points are:

First the number 80 to 650, how is that even a comparison.
Second she killed 650 women in a span of 25 years, why was she not convicted just after her 1st or 80th crime.

Nice Work Thakur Sahab
