Mr. Roarke: Yes, yes Elizabeth put into practice ancient satanic beliefs to stay eternally young and beautiful, she became widely known as the Blood Countess, she was much feared and hated. So much so that it is said, the french word abattoir meaning slaughter house was derived from her name.
Allusion to the practices of Elizabeth Bathory or as she was known Erzsébet, who was very vain and afraid of getting old and losing her beauty. One day a servant girl accidentially pulled her hair while combing it - Erzsébet slapped the girl's hand so hard she drew blood, which fell onto her own hand. She immediately thought her skin took on the freshness of that of her young maid. She was sure she found the secret of eternal youthful skin! She had her major-domo and Thorko strip the maid, cut her and drain her blood into a huge vat. Erzsébet bathed in it to beautify her entire body. Over the next 10 years Erzsébet's evil henchmen provided her with new girls for the blood-draining ritual and her blood baths.
