True Monster by tohdaryl True Monster by tohdaryl
Day 11 - True Monster

I had a difficult time interpret this one. I decided a true female monster would be the infamous Countess Elizabeth Báthory de Ecsed (Báthory Erzsébet in Hungarian, Alžbeta Bátoriová in Slovak; 7 August 1560 – 21 August 1614) was acountess from the renowned Báthory family of nobility in the Kingdom of Hungary. She has been labelled the most prolific female serial killer in history and is remembered as the “Blood Countess," though the precise number of victims is debated.

Whether or not it there is any truth to this part of her myth is debatable.  It was purported that after having been sealed into a tower with no outside access, of significance, she managed to remain alive for an extended period of time.

Her story's a lot more tragic than that though, as the myth was only a product of the patriarchal society of that time: hackneycitizen.co.uk/2013/04/0...

And her family left her for dead :( She's a good case in point for why gender inequality is bad though, considering that the majority of society doesn't know the truth.
