    The Bathory Family
    {images_(1).jpg} Bathory Crest
    Elizabeth Bathory was born to Baron George Bathory and Baroness Anna Bathory. The Bathory’s were a powerful Hungarian Protestant family; she was brought up to believe in her superiority. Her cousin Stephen became Prince of Transylvania in 1571 and was later elected King of Poland. Elizabeth ancestor Stephen Bathory had fought alongside Vlad Dracula in one of his many successful attempts to reclaim the Wallachian throne. Other members of the family were less respectable including Elizabeth’s brother Stephen who was a drunkard and lecher.

    Elizabeth was born on the 7th August 1560 in Transylvania, it is said that at the age of 4 or 5 she suffered from violent seizures which may have being caused from epilepsy or some other neurological disorder.
    In 1574 she fell pregnant to a peasant lover and gave birth to a young daughter who she named Anastasia. However Anastasia was given away because Elizabeth was ashamed about having a daughter with a peasant. At the age of 15 she married Count Fenrec Nadasdy and moved to Castle Cséjthe in the Hungarian province. The count spend a lot of time away from home fighting in wars, for a brief time Elizabeth eloped with a dark stranger but on her return to the castle her husband forgave her.

    Manservant Janos Ujvary was beheaded and female attendants Ilona Jo and Dorottya Szentes had their fingers ripped off and burned. On the 7th of August 1614 one of her guards wanted to have a look at the countess, who was still one of the most beautiful women in Hungary. He found her lying on the ground of her cell dead at the age of 54.

    Source 2:
    {elizabeth-bathory-1.jpg} A painting of Elizabeth Bathory, painter and year is unknown
    (Picture Credit: Dennis Bathory-Kitsz http://bathory.org)
    This painting reveals to us what Elizabeth Bathory looked like. Not much is clear about her appearance except that she was very pretty. It is said that she had long, black, silky hair and a pale complexion. This painting reveals that Elizabeth Bathory was in fact very beautiful however it does not show her sadistic side but a more calm side, which would be seen when she was around her children, this painting was probably done before she started killing. It also shows us a little about 17th century fashion, long dresses, lots of jewelry and puffy sleeves.
    Source 3:
    {tumblr_ll19s3KaFv1qdp4kpo1_400.jpg} Elizabeth's signature on her final will and testament after she dictated it to 2 Cathredral Preists on the 31st of July
    (Picture Credit: Dennis Bathory-Kitsz http://bathory.org)
    This source shows us that Elizabeth was educated enough to have a signature, which many noblemen and women didn't have around that time, as it was widely regarded that the higher classes didn't have a need to be educated. It also reveals that the countess, even though she was imprisoned at the time, was respected enough to be allowed to dictate a final will and testiment. The source doesn't reveal much about the countess's career or legacy as such, but does allow us to get a glimpse of the way she was treated and at her education.
    The three sources tell us a lot about the different perspectives of Elizabeth Bathory. The first source tells us about how she tortured and killed her victims. This is from one of her accomplices perspective, he tells of her beating and killing girls in such a horrific way. This perspective is of her being cruel and sadistic unlike the second source. The second source is a painting of her from before her killing spree began. It shows us nothing of her cruel side but a more calm side, we even see a small smile curling in the corner of her lips. Unfortunately the last source does not shows us much of a perspective because it is too hard to read but it does show us that she was a well educated women even if she was cruel and heartless to her victims.

    We enjoyed researching and learning about Marie Antoinette and discovering the true facts. We learnt about her life and the events beyond her control which she was eventually completely blamed for, because of her highly publicised life and she was a foreigner.
    
    "There is nothing new except what has been forgotten."
