In the 16th century, Tursun Beg, an Ottoman writer, called him Kazikli Voyvoda, meaning Lord the Impaler. He became not only the Voivode of Wallachia or the Son of the Dragon but Dragulya or Dracula.
The House of Dragon
Mrs. Blackwood — 5 Star Rating on Amazon and GoodReads
While many know him as Vlad the Impaler, a sobriquet unique to Vlad III who is a national hero to Romania, others feared his name.
Dracul belonged to his father, a member of the Order of the Dragons. His name was Vlad Dracul, meaning Vlad the Dragon.
Many believe Dracula to mean devil. It isn’t wrong to believe so. However, it is more informative to know that there was no word in the Romanian language back in Vlad the Impaler’s time, which meant “devil.”
It was only as the years went by that it became “devil.” When Vlad Tepes lived, he was the Son of the Dragon.
