Dracula's tomb 'found in Naples': report

Dracula's tomb 'found in Naples': report

An Italian newspaper has claimed that the tomb of Dracula - the brutal Romanian leader linked to the modern vampire novel and films - has been found in the centre of Naples.

Count Dracula gained notoriety as a blood-thirsty vampire in Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel, hundreds of years after the death of the Romanian leader Vlad III Dracula.

The cruel nature of real-life Dracula was equally well-known in the 15th century, when “Vlad the Impaler” punished his enemies by impaling them alive on stakes.

More than 500 years after Dracula’s death, a report in Il Gazzettino on Tuesday claimed academics at Estonia’s Tallinn University believe they have uncovered the mystery behind his burial site.
