Count Vlad (the Impaler) Tepes Dracolya was an actual historal figure born 1431AD in Transylvania, Dracul was a member of The Order of the Dragon, a group of Slavic rules and warlords who were sworn to uphold the Christian faith by fighting off the advancing Turks of the Muslim Ottoman empire. The Muslims were a fierce enemy bent on destroying Christianity in Medieval Europe after the fall of the Constantinople in 1453. The Order's emblem was a dragon with wings extended, hanging on a cross. From 1453 onward Count Vlad II wore the emblem of the order and his coinage bore the dragon symbol. Dracula tried to protect Europe with deeds that were vicious and dastardly even for his day. Our cross design shows two dragons guarding each others backs while forming the symbol of the cross.
