The Most Evil Woman ... Elizabeth Bathory... her family tree
How could this happen?
Well, it seems that I have found another family tree to work on and this one belongs to one of the evil women in history. I'm hoping that I don't find her on my tree. Unfortunately, she has a long line of descendants, so anything is possible. I'm going to start you off with a few videos of her life to let you get to know a little about her. And if you thought that my lens about Lizzie Borden was creepy... well, all I can say is that you haven't seen nothing yet!
And if you think that these were the only women who murdered anyone in their way, you have no idea!! Women Who Murder
Elizabeth... part one
The Bathory family and the Nadasdy family decided very early that a match between their children would be beneficial for both families. We know that Elizabeth was 15 years old.
Elizabeth Bathory marries two times?
Birth 1560 in Translyvania Hungry
Death 1614 in Hungry
I'm finding several sources where by Elizabeth marries a peasant first and then follows the wishes of her family to marry Ferencz. What happened to the peasant is anyone's guess. There is also information about a daughter from this alliance.
married Ferencz Nadasdy
Birth 1555 in Hungry
What is most surprising is the fact that history has painted Elizabeth as an extremely caring mother. While she tortured the children of families throughout Hungary, she loved her own children as would any mother today!
(while I haven't found a connecting line from Miklos I did find a possible descent born in Hungary: MiklÃ³s NÃ¡dasdi
Birth: abt 1859
Origin: Magyar, Hungary
Arrival: 25 Feb 1905 in New York, New York
Orsolya Orsika Nadasdy
*Now here is an interesting connection. There is actually a woman living in US with the same name and would be more than likely still be alive today.
Birth 1574 in Hungry
Birth 1585 in Hungry
Katalin (Katheriana) Nadasdy
Birth 1594 in Hungry
Birth 1598 in Hungry
Death 1650 in Hungry
Other than Paul who dies as a young child, there has to be hundreds and hundreds of descendants of this pair. I will keep looking to see just how far I can get.
The Blood Countess and where she lived
There is one painting of her that is quite remarkable!
Her lineage has come to a complete stop although there ARE children born of the union. It is impossible to imagine that there are no children wandering the world, but I doubt that anyone would admit to this particular family tree.
