I love it when stuff comes together :o)
Right at the beginning of this journey I ‘knew’ that there was something new to learn about the man we all know as Dracula.
I might take back every bad thing I’ve ever said about Wikipedia. But then again …!
OK – House of Basarab
“Basarab’s father Thocomerius also bore an allegedly Cuman name, identified as Toq-tämir, a rather common Cuman and Tatar name in the 13th century. The Russian chronicles around 1295 refer to a Toktomer, a prince of the Mongol Empire present in Crimea.”
Voivode Vlad Draculesti/Vlad the Impaler/Vlad Tepes/Dracula was descended from the House of Basarab.
