Happy Halloween!

16th century Transylvanian Blood Countess, Erzebet Báthory, was labelled as the most prolific female serial killer in history in The Guinness World Records. It is believed that she tortured, mutilated and murdered as many as 650 young girls, then bathed in their blood to preserve her youthful beauty. Historians are divided whether she was in fact a sadistic landowner or the victim of an effective smear campaign.
