Dracula is a fictional vampire, the subject of the 1897 novel by Bram Stoker, and of many film, stage and TV adaptations since.

The novel links him with the historical figure Vlad the Impaler, a Wallachian prince noted for his unusual cruelty, and suggests that he became a vampire through study of the 'black arts', or occultism.

Contrary to popular belief, the idea of sunlight being fatal to Dracula and other vampires is not found in the folklore or the novel. It was the silent film adaption Noserfatu, whose ending ends with the vampire being killed by sunlight, that gave birth to the idea of sunlight being fatal to vampires.
