In 1442, Viceroy of Transylvania, “White Knight” Jonas Hunyadi, mobilized a large army to oust the Turkish army back to Bulgaria. However, Dracul refused to join the anti-Turks with the “White Knight”. It is thought that because Dracul thought the “White Knight” could not defeat the Turks. Enraged by the defeat, King Murad II called for a number of senior figures in Europe, including Dracul, to the city of Gallipoli for peace. Only Dracul appeared with his two sons, Dracula was 13 years old and Radu was 9 years old. But upon arrival, the father and son were immediately arrested.
