In the two or three counties inhabited by the Szekely [hungarian population living in Romania], almost all the population has blood of type B. This is a blood type specific to Asia, because they [the Szekely] are of turanic (turkic) origin
Székely people, a Transylvanian subgroup of the Hungarians, spans nine centuries, although many historians consider that the formation of the Székely people had taken place before the Hungarian conquest of the Carpathian Basin in 895-896.
Dracula the Transylvanian exists in the novel only. Prince Dracula, Vlad IV, ruled Wallachia, which like Transylvania was a neighboring province of Rumania. Dracula's ethnicity was Wallach, and his fights with the Turks happened in Wallachia.
However, as Bram Stoker's Dracula is never explicitly connected to the Vlach Vlad III other than the name Dracul, the fact that Dracula states he is a Székely clearly separates the historical inspiration from the fictional vampire.
Far more accurate in their depictions of the Székely are the novels of Tamási Áron, a twentieth-century writer from Farkaslaka who set universal stories of love and self-individuation against the backdrop of Székely village culture.
In the book, lawyer Harker goes on a long and creepy journey to visit Count Dracula, a "Szekely" nobleman from Transylvania. The trip he makes is straight out of fable-- the carriage seems to criss-cross back over ground it had already covered and by the time Harker arrives at the castle he is in no real place but a non-place, like the non-place of Coleridge's Ancient Mariner. Which is just as well, because it's clear to me that Bram Stoker really didn't care whether people would be avidly looking up Transylvania and cross-referencing it with Dracula. Stoker makes assertions that serve his novel but not scholarship-- he has Van Helsing insist that this Dracula must be "that old Voivode Dracula" of Transylvania. The assertion has continued forever-- Frank Langella in the 1979 DRACULA says, "I am a Szekel," a Transylvanian-- and Coppola's DRACULA also repeats the idea that Vlad the Impaler ruled Transylvania.
Heterogeneity in the distribution of ABO blood groups in Hungary.
National Institute of Haematology and Blood Transfusion, Budapest, Hungary.
Estimates of the gene frequencies for the ABO system (i = 0.5593, IA = 0.2989, IB = 0.1418) based on a random sample of more than two hundred thousand voluntary donors from the 19 countries of Hungary are provided. Populations West of the Danube differ significantly from those East of the Danube for the frequencies of i and IB. These data are consistent with previous ones on the HP gene.
According to data received from the Family Tree DNA project, there is a high concentration of indiviudals in the J1 haplogroup living in modern day Ukraine, Poland, Moldavia, Belarus, Austria, Prussia, and Azerbaijan.
Avars were a nomadic Turkicspeaking people of Eurasia who migrated into Central and Eastern Europe in the early 6th century. The Avars reached the territories of Wallachia, Pannonia, Transylvania, and Bohemia, where they established a powerful state (the Avar Khaganate), which ruled over areas of Eastern and Central Europe and controlled the Slavs, who had lived in the area before the Avar arrival. Avar rule persisted over much of the Pannonian plain up to the early 9th century. From that time, the Avars likely merged with the Slavs (Gimbutas 1971; Sedov 1979). Therefore it is possible that after Avar rule was destroyed, the Avar maternal lineages, including East Eurasian ones, were assimilated mainly by the Slavs. [...]"
In the field of archaeology and anthropology, I will mention here only the excavations at Bodrogköz, where the remains in the 6000 year-old graves were of the same Rh negative blood-type as the present day inhabitants. The excavations in the same 6000 year-old strata at Vésztő-Mágor show a continuous habitation, through the Avar age to the present. The profile of the 6000 year-old statue shows the same features as those of the present inhabitants.
The "Kanga" and "Subar" names would survive in Central Asia until the expansion of the Avars in the 6th century AD from Hyrcania = Varkana Jews were exile to Hayrcania in 360 B.C. and Bostanai was give Fiepdom over Northern Iran and Hyrcania by Yazdegerd I and Shupar II
Hyrcania = Varkana
HLA-B4201 is 1% in Romania
I am from Prahova Valley near the Carpathian Mountains - Romania, born in the year of Fire Dragon. And have this noble and rare blood type B Rh negative. But both parents are Rh positive. I'm blonde with blue eyes and very white skin. Never become tanned. All my life I felt different from the rest. I have often physic dreams, empathetic illnesses, physic abilities and frequent alien contacts. No, I do not want to talk about it right now !! Since I was a litlle girl I discovered that I'm psychic and have this strange sense of not belonging to the human race. I have to mention that I found recently, doing extensive research, that I'm a descendant of Vlad the Impaler. To receive such news was totally beyond me. Being unprepared for such a thing it makes me very scared at first. Especially that the Masons, those who know the truth, began to call me the Dragon Princess. I was looking at them as people who have suddenly gone mad, because they ate poisonous mushrooms or else. I think I said enough.
the Prahova Valley, the gate to Transylvania
Prahova Valley connects Transylvania and Wallachia,
In 1829, the Russian Empire won the war with the Turks, Moldavia and Wallachia moved under its control. Ruler was temporarily appointed Adjutant-General Kiselev. He insisted on amending the Civil Code of Moldova. Among other things, in 1833 for the Gypsies has been recognized as a person, which meant a ban on killing them. Section was introduced, under which a gypsy woman, compelled to become the concubine of her master, was freed after his death.
Influenced by the progressive minds of Russia, the idea of the abolition of serfdom began to spread in the Moldovan and Romanian society. Contribute to the dissemination and students studying abroad. In September 1848 the streets of Bucharest hosted the youth demonstrations calling for the abolition of serfdom. Some of the landowners voluntarily freed their slaves. However, the majority of slave owners were opposed to new ideas. In order not to cause them displeasure, the Government of Moldova and Wallachia acted roundabout way: ransomed slaves from their owners and released. Finally, in 1864, slavery was prohibited by law.
After the abolition of slavery began active emigration of Roma Kalderash of Wallachia in Russia, Hungary and other countries. By the beginning of World War II Kalderash could be found in almost all European countries.
