Born in 1560, and considered the most infamous serial killer in Hungarian / Slovak history, Countess Elizabeth Bathory abused her position of power to abuse others. After some rumors that were circulating became so numerous that they could be ignored no longer, King Mathias II sent a party of men to Castle Csejthe where Elizabeth had been quietly going about her business.
They found a dead girl, another one on her way, another wounded and many others locked up. They’d been beaten, attacked with needles, burnt, bitten and starved. Over twenty five years it became apparent that she’d claimed hundreds of victims.
They couldn’t do much due to her status, so they locked her in one room for the rest of her days.
