Elizabeth Bathory Did Nothing Wrong

Imagine being one of the most reviled people in all of history, and even worse, having done nothing wrong! This may very well apply to the infamous Elizabeth Bathory. On top of being a female serial killer, she’s also been accused in bathing in the blood of her victims…

Outrageous claims to be sure, but there’s just one problem. There was never even a trial. That’s right. Bathory never even had the opportunity to defend herself. When all was said and done, she was sentenced to a life of solitary confinement for crimes she likely didn’t commit.

There’s another problem with this case though. The King of Hungary, Matthias 2nd, owed Elizabeth a lot of money. When she was sentenced to life in solitary confinement, it was conveniently decided that he didn’t have to pay back any of the money and he got all her land. Yes, seriously.

Things get even more suspicious when you find out he was the one behind the entire investigation to begin with.
