The notion of vampires has existed for millennia throughout various ancient cultures (including the Mesopotamians, Hebrews, Ancient Greeks, and Romans). However, the folklore entity that we know as the vampire originated almost exclusively in early 18th century southeastern Europe. In most cases, vampires were thought to be revenants (animated corpses come back to life to terrorize the living) of evil beings, suicide victims, or witches. They were also believed to be created by a malevolent spirit possessing a corpse. Belief in such legends became so pervasive in some areas that it led to mass hysteria, and people regularly staked corpses, accused others of vampirism, and even held public executions of supposed vampires.
The archetypical charismatic and sophisticated vampire of today was firmly established with the rise of vampire fiction in the 19th century. Vampire literature culminated in Bram Stoker's quintessential 1897 novel Dracula, the success of which went on to spawn a distinctive vampire genre and provide a basis for modern vampire fiction. Though the “classic” vampire remains a figure of Victorian Gothic horror, they can be found today in all varieties of media from books to feature films to television to video games (and more).
Included is a Gothic style lined frock coat, matching knickers, vest, and lace jabot with cuffs.
