Background

Marvel

Dracula was in his mortal life the ruler of the 15th century principality of Wallachia, Romania. Who fought the Ottoman Turks who were beginning their expansion into the Balkans. Due to a series of events orchestrated by Varnae the millennia old Atlantean Lord of Vampires, he became a vampire and then the new Lord of Vampires. Over the centuries he has been involved in various historical events and clashed with various supernatural beings, until the emergence of superhumans (mutants, mutates, and both mystical and technologically enhanced heroes).

Due to the role that the Darkhold played in the creation of vampires and the powerful dark magic within, the pages of the Darkhold have played an on and off role in Dracula's life. Sometimes he uses the spells in it for his purpose, other times he attempts to find a lost page and is stopped by heroes. Other times a rival or enemy of Dracula is the one attempting to use the Darkhold, and Dracula by himself, with his minions, or in a temporary alliance with heroes fights to prevent the completion of their plans.

After Great Britain had been weakened by the Skrull invasion of the early 21st century, Dracula allied himself with Lilith, and led the Vampire Nation to conquer Great Britain for a short period.
