Dracula's Grave Has Finally Been Discovered... And They Want To Open It
June 17, 2014
Stock up on garlic and holy water because researchers think that they've discovered the final resting place of the world's most famous vampire... and they're asking permission to crack open the tomb. GREAT IDEA, GUYS!
A group of scholars say they have discovered evidence that suggests the Count was taken prisoner, ransomed to his daughter in Italy and then buried in a church in Naples. Now, a headstone has been discovered there, and has historians very intrigued.
A student by the name of Erika Stella who is doing her dissertation on Naples' Santa Maria la Nova Church, found a headstone on a grave which she says belongs to none other than the 15th-century Prince Vlad Tepes III - that's DRACULA to us!
Raffaello Glinni, a Medieval history scholar, noticed that that tomb is covered symbols representing the House of the Transylvanian "Carpathians," something very out of place in a crypt full of Italian noblemen.
"When you look at the bas-relief sculptures, the symbolism is obvious. The dragon means Dracula and the two opposing sphinxes represent the city of Thebes, also known as Tepes. In these symbols, the very name of the count Dracula Tepes is written," Glinni told reporters.
This is an incedible discovery but honestly, is opening this thing really worth the risk?
