2. Dragons

Fire breathing, bone crunching, flesh ripping, large animal that wreaked havoc with even its shadows. Dragons have been mentioned in many tales throughout the centuries. It is mostly common to hear that a brave knight has rescued some princess and has slew the dragon in doing so, but if a dragon is all that and more, i am certain that no brave knight can take on a dragon alone with a simple sword or spear!

A dragon is described as a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, that is featured in the folklore of many cultures. There are two distinct cultural traditions of dragons: the European dragon, which came from European folk traditions and ultimately related to Greek and Middle Eastern mythologies, and the Chinese dragon, with counterparts in Japan (namely the Japanese dragon), Korea and other East Asian countries.

The dragon has become so famous it is now integrated in many kids stories, meaning hard copy books. Many movies have been created centered around the dragon itself. The Dragon is seen in some Asian cultures as a very powerful and mystifying creature. There are even kung fu moves and martial art fighting styles which are named from the dragon.

      Regarding Vlad the Impaler there are some things to say. We should not forget that a cruelty atmosphere dominated Europe of the XV century! Many horrible methods of torture were created and used to all the European courts from Western Europe until Russia, as: the iron maiden, the saw, the impalement, the pulling on wheel, the hot iron, etc. He was not as cruel as we know today, more stories about him were exagerated by the saxon merchandisers. As military he was very skilfull, good organizer, being appreciated by the other European Kings and Pope himself!

      There are many different tales about Vlad, but the most common are his love for impaling and his denouncement of God. Yes he was quite skillful in the military, but Vlad is now Count Dracula!!!!!
