Elizabeth Bathory by GENZOMAN Elizabeth Bathory by GENZOMAN
DOWNLOAD for a bigger version :)

Hi There guys! this one is a old commission from around mid 2009 for a vampire set on a TCG... This time another chara linked to the vapire myths. The loved and hated Elizabeth Bathory, aka, the blood countess(maybe you remember her as Elizabeth Bartley on Castlevania: Bloodlines). I done a previous version of her a couple of years ago (the pic is on the gallery) a more, human version, so this one is a more vampire/demon version, hope you like it :)

well enought chat and there goes the wiki attack!

---------------0------------------
Countess Elizabeth Báthory (Erzebet Bathory August 1560 – 21 August 1614) was a countess from the renowned Báthory family. She is possibly the most prolific female serial killer in history and is remembered as the "Blood Countess" and as the "Bloody Lady of Čachtice," after the castle near Trencsén (today Trenčín) in the Kingdom of Hungary, (today's Slovakia), where she spent most of her adult life.

After her husband's death, she and four collaborators were accused of torturing and killing hundreds of girls and young women, with one witness attributing to them over 600 victims, though the number for which she was convicted was 80. In 1610, she was imprisoned in the Csejte Castle, where she remained bricked in a set of rooms until her death four years later.

The case has led to legendary accounts of the Countess bathing in the blood of virgins in order to retain her youth and subsequently also to comparisons with Vlad III the Impaler of Wallachia, on whom the fictional Count Dracula is partly based, and to modern nicknames of the Blood Countess and Countess Dracula, also linked to the vampire folklore.

my first thought upon seeing this picture was dragon blood Elizabeth Bathory from type-moon verse.  The picture does fit the vampire theme nicely though.

the creepy part of this is that recent studies have shown "young" (20-ish or younger) blood  transfused into the elderly have shown signs of "youthening" the body 

so in the future there may be a big business in draining the 20 year olds for the rich elderly...

I guess you also read the bloodsmoking account of Delphine Laurelindoria or something, of New Orleans, who supposedly inflicted such surgical and anatomical atrocities on her slaves that she was seen as worse than totally insane, as demonic ! The mob,maddened by such insane rumors,hideous from growing in the telling, stormed her house, hoping to make her alive into chopped meat, -but she had already fled to France. So they took out their fury on the furniture, smashing it into kindling ! Her victims may have been slaves, BUT you must not treat even animals the way they claimed she did.

 

You probably read the account of Delphien LaCourtenay or whatever in the same Wikipedia article as the Blood Countess.

Before her bast husband died (killed ?), he had some children by her. There are descendants of her to this day, incl. 3 on Long Island,NY. (!) Wonder if they want it widely known about their ancestor.

 

As a child, she was fascinated to watch the cruel executions meted out to minor malefactors and looked forward to them. The people must have been a subhuman race.

Of course. Because almost every vampire are known to be empowered by the blood of other living creatures, including humans. Since using blood for youth and other things involving death magic is totally unholy than dark magic, punishment will be sent to those who possessed them.
I know that because I always get this strange feeling from the end of my throat to the face of my heart. I just felt this feeling inside of me, like there is some kind of book that I, somehow, wrote on the inside.

Oh the blood queen, her legend is on par of that of Vlad Tepes aka Vlad Dracula. I never quite understood why in modern myth everyone made her the Bride of Dracula seeing as these two very headstrong and oppiste minded individuals would have tried to kill each other outright. Ce la vie?

Underneath the monlight of old hungerian skies
buried in the blood-drenched earth
These barren lands of ice
She was an evil woman with an evil old soul
Piercing eyes emotionless
a heart so black and cold

Elizabeth, in the chasm where was my soul
Forever young, Elizabeth Bathorii in the castle of your death
You're still alive, Elizabeth

- Elizabeth by Ghost.

I got to watch a portion of a documentary on her in which they supposedly proven more than the 80 that she was convicted of. If I remember correctly they counted around 400 possibly, but it has been a while since I've seen it.
