 DRACULA ovvero Vlad III Tepes, principe della Valacchia - Personaggi di *Arcobaleno*
Giunto nella reggia paterna di Tirgoviste la trovò occupata un usurpatore: senza scomporsi, Vlad III si rifugiò in Moldavia, alla corte dello zio paterno Bogdan, e strinse amicizia con il cugino Stefano, anzi, a vicenda si giurarono che un domani, chi avesse avuto il potere per primo, avrebbe aiutato l’altro per ottenere il proprio.
Negli anni che seguirono Vlad praticò il suo tirocinio nell’arte della guerra, partecipando alle crociate nei Balcani ed alle guerriglie contro i Turchi, fino al 1454, anno in cui rientrò in possesso dei domini paterni.
Vanitoso e crudele Vlad III amava le lodi, ma s’infuriava se il complimento scadeva in adulazione, apprezzava l’umorismo, l’intelligenza e la prontezza di spirito, qualità che salvarono un ambasciatore polacco, ma detestava la stoltezza.
