Each Vlad Dracula's Order of the Dragon Signet Ring is skillfully handcrafted one at a time in your choice of sterling silver, 14k yellow gold or 14k white gold. The signet ring is a ring version of the Order of the Dragon symbol that Vlad the Impaler, better known as Dracula, used to signify his membership in the Order. It is believed that he wore this image as a medallion during his lifetime. The Order of the Dragon was founded in 1408, by Sigismund, the King of Hungary for the purpose of defending the Cross and fighting against the enemies of Christianity, especially the Ottoman Turks. Dracula derived his name from the Order of the Dragon, Dracula means "Son of the Dragon". Vlad's father, Vlad II, received the surname of Dracul, meaning dragon, when he was inducted into the Order in 1431. Dracula himself was inducted into the Order when he was five years old.
