History Fact

The most prolific female serial killer was a Hungarian Countess.

 

Named Elizabeth Báthory de Ecsed, she was born on August 7th, 1560.


She was accused of torturing and killing over 650 young women. Most the women were between the ages of 10 and 14.


Her cruelty was limitless. She regularly bathed in the blood of virgins to preserve her youthful looks.


After facing accusations from many people, smallfolk and nobles alike, she was detained. However she did not face trial due to her family’s aristocratic high-standing.


Instead, she was privately imprisoned in a windowless room for four years until she died in 1614.
