--Gilles de Rais, depraved vampire--



“I liked to see run the blood, provided a great pleasure to me. Memory that from my childhood the greatest pleasures seemed to me terrible. That is to say, the Apocalypse was the unique thing that interested to me. I believed in hell before being able to believe in the sky. One gets tired and bores of the ordinary. I began killing because he was boring and I continued doing it because I liked to relieve my energies. In the battlefield the man never disobeys and the blood Earth everything soaked is like an immense altar in which everything what has life immolates interminably, until the same death of the death in himself. The death became my divinity, my sacred and absolute beauty. I have been living with the death since I realized of which it could breathe. My game par excellence is to imagine to me dead and nibbled by the worms”. Text said by Guilles de Rais in Nantes, when it had been arrested.

He used to kidnap to paupers and farmers between the seven and fourteen years of age, committing with them pure barbarisms, stranglings… Decapitations in the towers of the castle next to his pajes of confidence. They dismantled them and they opened in channel, amusing themselves with it and remaining next with its heads. They were ruthless assassins in addition to sexual patients.

The total number of victims cannot be calculated, due to the deep panic and terror that felt most of the relatives of children assassinated, towards the call, “disciple of Satan”. Esteem that the number had very to be elevated.

He was accused before the bishop of Nantes like: wizard, evil spirit, fortune teller, apostate, servant of fetiches, assassin of innocents, turned aside of the faith and his enemy, prophet and teacher wizard. As defense said the following thing: “the star under that I have been born has destined me to fulfill facts that nobody had been able to understand”.

Their rest were buried in the church of the Carmelite ones of Nantes, at the request of their relatives. A true monster, one of the most ruthless assassins of the planet.


A torturator cynical patient of children. The personification of badly in the Earth. Which shortly before dying asked pardon the relatives of his victims, everything by the final fear to go to hell. In addition to all the saying, absolute a cowardly one.
