    You called a hero a fascist. Biased video

  • ierbutza21 on September 16, 2021

    Son of the dragon by those times not by the modern interpretation son of the devil,if anything if his true story ( what we know so far) would be more interesting than the fake stuff and whatever supernatural bs.

  • Ade Fegan on September 18, 2021

    Keep the Turks out … Sounds like a plan
    But to the biased far left minds at national geographic, that makes him a bad guy
    Not a bad word to say about Turks Huh NG ?

    Researcher's r tryna wake him from his ancient slumber to return :0

  • Appu Reacts on October 10, 2021

    He was ruthless but he united romania and demolished civil wars. He did what needs to be done, Maybe there was another choice but that might not be as efficient as what he did. It was ugly but it was effective.

  • Paulie Thompson on October 12, 2021

    You know if you were a christian and the order of the dragon tried to name you the son of a devil then i would have a few questions 🤣🤣. Also that is an odd name for a Christian organization considering that the only time a dragon is used as imagery is to describe the evil one.

  • E. R. on October 14, 2021

    vlad didn’t have anything to do with bran castle

  • Iulian Andrei on October 17, 2021

    This is completely false…

  • Iulian Andrei on October 17, 2021

    The name is right… The rest is a bit from a novel

  • Anonymous Patriot on October 21, 2021

    Sincerely doubt it would take 3 days to die by impalment! More historical, or hysterical hype!

  • matskooo gladiator  on October 22, 2021

  • Nilanjan Gupta on October 23, 2021

    Looks like europe needs him again especially against the wannabe "Sultan".

  • Michael Smyth on October 30, 2021

    God bless Vlad

  • Steve Callum on October 31, 2021

    Nor sure why the National Geo Channel saw fit to give incorrect facts. Bran Castle is NOT anything to do wth Vlad Tepes for a start. He probably only visited there less than a handful of times during his life and The real Castle Dracula is high atop a mountain range near the River Arges and is called Peonari Fortress. Also his name Dracula meant son of Dracul the A sound meaning Son of. It was his father who was ordained into the order of the Dragon to pitt himself against the evil tyranny of the Turks and the Scandanavian/german Lords who also wanted riches beyond greed. Dracula actually means Son Of The Dragon, NOT Son of the Devil. Wish these tv companies would stick to facts and stop trying to link him to the fictional evil written about in Bram Stokers Victorian Novel. Yes Bram did use Vlads history as a family blood line for his vampire but thats all. So this 4 minutes clip from a company thats supposed to know what they re doing when researching these historical facts really goes to show they were only interested in talking about Vlad in a sensationalised way.

  • İlker Peker on November 21, 2021

    Fatih Sultan Mehmet 🇹🇷

  • CR 7 on November 27, 2021

    becoming vampire was far more better than what he was as human

  • John Yanke on November 30, 2021

    Make that St Vlad the impaler. Pope Pius II called him “a warrior for the Faith”

  • koko kwikwak on November 30, 2021

    Sometimes, you need to embrace evil for the common good of your people.

  • Hasan Yılmaz on December 19, 2021

    He killed many Turks, but his head was taken to the capital.
