The Order of the Dragon symbol is what Vlad the Impaler, better known as Dracula, was said to wear signifying his membership in the Order. It is believed that he wore this image as a medallion during his lifetime. The Order of the Dragon was founded in 1408, by Sigismund, the King of Hungary for the purpose of defending the Cross and fighting against the enemies of Christianity, especially the Ottoman Turks.
Dracula derived his name from the Order of the Dragon, Dracula means "Son of the Dragon". Vlad's father, Vlad II, received the surname of Dracul, meaning dragon, when he was inducted into the Order in 1431. Dracula himself was inducted into the Order when he was five years old.
