Jump to: navigation, search

The Count of Sylvania is the ruler of Sylvania, a backwater province of The Empire. This noble title was originally usually passed on in a hereditary fashion and long held by House von Drak. The marriage of Isabella von Drak to Vlad von Carstein led to a new kind of rulers: the dreaded and merciless Vampire Counts.
