The Blood Countess

Erzsébet Bathory was a Hungarian Countess accused (though never convicted because of her royal status) of killing over 600 virgin women. She thought if she bathed in their blood she would remain eternally youthful. Rumor is it actually worked. She was notoriously beautiful and seemingly ageless. She is considered the most prolific serial killer ever and as well as the first female 'vampire'.
