An extraordinary woman. She lived during a depraved time in European history. She is looking at you, beautiful, sophisticated, confident, and powerful. She changed much in the world. She would have changed more if not assassinated in 1610. Then the onset of a thirty-year Habsburg Apocalypse - the Real bloodbath. Her true memory is preserved in art, and her character Assassination in legend. Welcome to ElizabethBathory.Org! This is the virtual home of the Original 1580 Elizabeth Bathory Portrait.
