The Dracula campaign in the Age of Empires II HD: The Forgotten is depicting its namesake, Vlad III Dracula. Since there is no civilization that Dracula perfectly fits in, the player plays with three different civilizations in the campaign - Turks, Magyars, and Slavs.
Vlad III Dracula, from the House of Drăculești (a branch of the House of Basarab), was a three-time Voivod of Wallachia, first in 1448, then in 1456 to 1462. and once more in 1476. He first came into power by fighting Vladislav II the usurper from the House of Dănești (another branch of the Basarab), later frequently fighting the Ottoman Empire. Due to his reputation of impaling his enemies, he is also known as "Vlad the Impaler" or Vlad Țepeș in Romanian.
Unit EditVlad Dracula is a cavalry hero. He is always a must-survive unit. In-game, he is represented as a Boyar. As a hero, he cannot be converted and can regenerate health.
In the third scenario, Dracula nabs a Trade Cart on the way to Giurgiu. He then disguises himself as a King (named Disguised Vlad Dracula) and freely enters the city as a trader to later capture the city and defeat the Ottoman guards. After that, Dracula is reverted to his original form.
