The fascinating figure of Elizabeth Bathory has been occupying the minds of historians for centuries. Even today, nearly four hundred years after her death, her life and innocence are still a point of contention. In the Guinness Book of World Records, she is described as the most prolific female murderer in human history. After reading a number of publications and historical accounts, I came to a different conclusion.  In my eyes, she was an intelligent and educated renaissance woman who was the victim of a conspiracy due to her excess wealth.
