Readers seeking a sober recounting of history will not find it in this book. Ironically, for the pages and pages recounting mentally ill family members throughout the centuries which included Erzsebet’s older brother Istvan the “satyr”, and “mad” King Sigusmundnot a word was written about Vlad III.
