The True Story Behind The Legend of Sleepy Hollow -by Amanda Pallay

The True Story Behind The Legend of Sleepy Hollow - Quicken Loans Zing BlogI have always loved scary stories. From watching Scooby Doo religously every afternoon at my grandma’s house to reading my first horror novel (“It” by Stephen King) when I was in 4th grade, I was born a connoisseur of the frightening. I remember one of the most interesting and terrifying stories to me was The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. My first exposure to it was through the Disney movie “The Adventures of Icabod and Mr. Toad” – a movie that was one half “The Wind in the Willows” and one half “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”

Through the silly, soft lens of Walt Disney, that version wasn’t nearly as horrifying as later adaptations, but it sparked some kind of real fear in me as a child – and I loved it.

Everyone knows the story of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow with its tale of Ichabod Crane the slight, yet smart, schoolteacher, and the menacing Headless Horseman. But I wonder how many people know that  its author, Washington Irving, drew inspiration from real-life

The Real Dracula: Vlad the Impaler | Live Science by Impaler By Marc Lallanilla

Few names have cast more terror into the human heart than Dracula. The legendary vampire, created by author Bram Stoker in his 1897 novel of the same name, has inspired countless horror movies, television shows and other bloodcurdling tales of vampires.

Though Dracula is a purely fictional creation, Stoker named his infamous character after a real person who happened to have a taste for blood: Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia or — as he is better known — Vlad the Impaler. The morbid nickname is a testament to the Wallachian prince’s favorite way of dispensing with his enemies.

But other than having the same name, the two Draculas don’t really have much in common, according to historians who have studied the link between Stoker’s vampire count and Vlad III.

The real Dracula

By most accounts, Vlad III was born in 1431 in what is now Transylvania, the central region of modern-day Romania. However, the link between Vlad the Impaler and Transylvania is
