Vlad Tepulus was born in the year 1459 to Prince Vlad Dracula of Wallachia and his wife, Maria. When Vlad was still an infant, his father was turned into a vampire by the Romani witch, Lianda, and his mother was raped and murdered by the Turkish warlord, Turac. Dracula slew Turac and buried Maria. As a vampire, he knew that he was no longer fit to be a parent, so he left young Vlad in the care of the Romani. Years later an adult Vlad attempted to slay his father, but was killed himself. His own son then continued his vendetta against Dracula.[citation needed]
