Bathory, Countess Elizabeth

(1560 AD - 1614 AD)
   She believed that bathing in the blood of a virgin would keep her young forever. A lesbian, she often had orgies with the girls before killing them. The girls she didn't kill were bled often, or placed in a cage suspended from the ceiling. Long spikes in the bottom of the cage pierced the victims feet, and the countess would stand under the cage and shower in the blood. She also drank the blood of her victims. When discovered, she was sentenced to be walled up in the bedroom of her castle, where she lived for another four years. Also known as The Bloody Countess.
