Born on the full moon, at the height of the Dog Days, the new British prince has tongues and tails wagging but is he really just another vampire descendant like his grandfather Prince Charles, or is he actually a werewolf?
The baby’s grandpa, Prince Charles openly admitted to the world just last year that he is in fact a descendant of one of the very first vampires, the notorious Vlad the Impaler of Transylvania, whose bloody legacy inspired the Dracula story.
“Transylvania is in my blood,” Prince Charles admitted in a television interview in November 2012. “The genealogy shows I am descended from Vlad the Impaler.”
Which means of course, that his new grandson, the little Prince George Alexander Louis also has vampire blood running through his veins.
Add to this a statement made by self-hating Russian vampire politician also named Vladimir himself, who recently warned the world that this new prince would grow up to be a vampire. “This new royal baby is another blood-sucking British monarch whose birth should not be celebrated,” he said.
All very compelling evidence the new prince is indeed a vampire, just like old grandpa Charles. Or is he?
Not so fast. If the baby is just another vampire like his grandpire, why did he refuse to come out until the full moon? Vampires are famously very often born on the crescent moon, not the full moon and certainly not on this full moon, the Dog Days Moon, the Mutt Moon, the Ghost Moon? With all that ghostly moonlight and all those new werewolves running around, it’s just not safe for a baby vampire.
But what other evidence do we have the first prince is a werewolf and not a vampire?
Well, consider his name: Prince George Alexander Louis. The first thing you will notice is no Vlad on the list of names here. Coincidence? Maybe, maybe not.
On to the name George. Pundits note the name George appears to refer to Queen Elizabeth’s father, George VI but it’s impossible to ignore its relationship to another George, the George who started it all, St. George, who became famous for, among other things like balancing a spoon on his nose, slaying a dragon! To be clear, St. George is normally depicted slaying dragons on a white horse, with a glowing halo above his head, making him appear more angel than werewolf but werewolves too were known to take down dragons back then.
(Actually back then, everyone wanted to bag a draconian. Almost makes you wonder if Dragons are really jerks or just justifiably annoyed at everyone.)
So back to George. Conclusion on George? Inconclusive.
Let’s look at Alexander. Alexander hails from the name of Alexander the Great, Greek ruler said to have never lost a battle, often depicted with eyes or two different colours, “one as dark as night and the other as blue as the sky.” He was also said to wield a thunderbolt from time to time and stated that Zeus was his father. Sound like a werewolf to you? Er, not so much.
But wait. Before you shut the book on the case, don’t forget the baby’s third name: Louis. Has a more werewolf name ever been named? Sure it means great warrior or defender but this by way of its obvious connection to LOUP? – LOUP GAROU – LUPINE…? The little prince certainly appears to have hair like a Louis already.
So, Prince Vampire? Or Prince Angellic Demigod Werewolf? You decide for yourself.
Or better yet, add the new prince to your list of Important People to Scan. I already did. I’ll let you know how it goes.
