15th Century: War with the Ottomans
In 1431, the Holy Roman Emperor Sigismund II named Vlad Dracul prince of Wallachia, a Romanian principality bordering Transylvania on the south. Dracul would eventually been killed by Transylvanian followers of John Hunyadi, the leading crusader against the Turks.
In 1448, at 18 years old, Dracul's son Dracula took over the throne of Wallachia, with Turkish support, and ruled there for eight months before fleeing to Moldavia, in fear of the Transylvanians who had killed his father.
In 1459, aided by Hunyadi, Dracula became prince of Wallachia once again, and fought a brutal war against the Turks.
