The normally mild-mannered Prince Charles has a bit of a secret…he’s related to Vlad the Impaler, the inspiration for Dracula, this according to the AP.

In an interview with the British travel show “Wild Carpathia,” the future King of England says of Romania’s Transylvania area, “I have a bit of a ‘stake’ in the country.”

The Prince says his family tree connects him to the 15th Century Romanian warlord who has gone on to inspire not only Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel, but countless films about the count.

No biting.
