The Legend Of Jure Grando, The First Person Described As A Vampire [source]


He is the one who knocks

Jure Grando was a peasant who lived in the small village of Kringa, just outside of Tinjan, Croatia. He died in 1656, leaving behind a widow and a wake of terror that haunted Kringa for the next 16 years.

Every night for those 16 years, the good people of Kringa would hear knocks throughout the city in the middle of the night. The knocks were warnings, a promise that someone who lived in a house that had its door knocked had little time left on this world.

Giorgio, the village priest who had buried Jure, soon put it all together. Inexplicably, Jure Grando had returned from the dead to haunt and terrorize the people in his town. That wasn’t all he did.

Every night, Jure would visit his widow. His rancid corpse and ghastly face, which looked like he was smiling and gasping for breath at the same time, would terrorize and rape her every night, forcing what he thought was her marital duties on her well after his death.

16 years later, the villagers began growing tired of living in a constant state of fear every night. Giorgio eventually confronted Jure, wielding his cross and yelling “Behold Jesus Christ, you strigon (vampire)! Stop tormenting us!” And at that moment, tears began falling from his eyes as he retreated.

A couple nights later a brave prefect named Miho Radetic assembled a group of villages to confront and kill Jure. They found and chased him, and Miho stabbed Jure in the chest with a hawthorne stick.

It failed, with the stick bouncing off his chest as Jure retreated once again.

The next night, a group of nine villagers snuck into the graveyard with crosses, lamps and a hawthorn stick. They tip toed their way to the grave of Jure Grando and dug up his coffin. They opened it, shocked to find the perfectly preserved corpse of Jure with a smile on his dead face.

Giorgio then looked upon the corpse and said “Look, strigon, there is Jesus Christ who saved us from hell and died for us. And you, strigon, you cannot have peace!” Giorgio took the hawthorn stick and slammed it into the heart of Jure, but it would not pierce his flesh!

They quickly tried to exorcise the corpse of Jure Grando, but it didn’t work. One villager named Stipan Milasic decided to take things into his own hands. He quickly found a saw and tried to saw off Jure’s head. As soon as the saw cut his skin, Jure’s popped open and a blood-curdling scream escaped his mouth. Blood flowed from his wound and began flooding the graveyard, as the blood of his victims returned to the earth.

Finally, peace had been returned to Kringa.

This was the legend of Jure Grando, the first human to ever be called a vampire. The story was heard by Johann Weikhard von Valvasor while visiting Kringa on his travels. He researched and recorded the story in his anthology The Glory of the Duchy of Cariola in 1689, though the story was forgotten in until the Croation version of Bram Stoker’s Dracula arrived in the area. They’ve now fully embraced the legend, creating a vampire bar to draw in tourism.

Jure Grando’s story preceeded Vlad the Impaler, which is widely believed to be the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula. It also has many tenents of a vampire story: murder, death, sexual activity. It’s a piece of folklore that preceeds our understanding of a monster we almost take for granted nowadays. It is the legend of Jure Grando.

Standing proudly at the heart of Malta’s Grand Harbour, the medieval fort of St. Angelo has throughout the ages borne witness to some of the worst war atrocities of the Mediterranean. Some fishermen insist that they can still hear the agonized screams of the Ottoman soldiers who were captured and slaughtered by the Knights of St. John during the Great Siege of 1565. The prisoners’ heads were literally sawn off and floated across the harbour on a raft to act as a deterrent to the other Ottoman militants. These gruesome events turned the fortification and its surroundings into the most haunted place on the island. [source]

Not exactly a ghost story but related to the supernatural.

The other day I was out in the evening with my friend and he saw this girl he knows and told me she's a fortune teller. Obviously I started laughing but he was like "no, she really is one" and called her over.

He asked her whether she remembers him and she couldn't, but then he said "I'm friends with (her ex-boyfriend)" and she remembered him. Then he told her "my friend doesn't want to believe you're a fortune teller" and I'm just standing there thinking "wtf is he doing".

Anyway, she turned to me and said "let me prove it to you" and I was like "let's see what you can come up with." And she told me my name, age, and school I used to go to. This shocked me a bit but considering my friend is my age and ex-classmate of mine, I thought she probably made the connection and probably had seen my name on facebook or something.

But then she told me my parents' names as well and I was stunned because I couldn't see how she could possibly know that. So I'm on edge now and thinking of leaving but she carries on and says your father is X years old, and does so and so (job). Now I'm scared and thinking of just leaving but before I do she goes "But I have some good news for you."

At this my heart lifted and I wondered what it might be. Maybe I was going to win the lottery or she was going to tell me that Bayern will beat Real Madrid and win the CL or something. Anyway so curiosity got the best of me and I told her to go on. She told me that once she starts I must let her finish and cannot interrupt her because if I do none of the good things would happen and instead I would have bad luck for the rest of the year.

Now as you all know I'm not one who believes in superstitious stuff that much but having just heard everything she told me I was scared and starting to believe her. I was expecting good news though so my curiosity won in the end and I agreed.

She said something like "So you're going to be very successful in your chosen profession, you're going to become very well known in Malta and make a lot of money in a very short time BUT..."

Obviously as soon as I heard that "but" my heart skipped a beat but I remembered our agreement and was too scared to stop listening.

She went on "BUT after 15 years something is going to happen to you... something which I'm sorry to say isn't that pleasant at all... and you'll stop doing that job and making a lot of money. Instead you'll start doing what your great-grandfather used to do."

Well, let me tell you, that was a very shocking thing to hear. You know what my great-grandfather used to do? He used to make up long stories to waste his friends' time!

TIL (was going to post in that thread originally but then remembered this one) of the Chislehurst Caves ghost challenge. The caves are a manmade labyrinth of tunnels after they were mined for chalk to make bricks to rebuild London after 1666. There is a natural pool inside in which the skeleton of a woman was found. The story goes that this discovery awakened her spirit and a challenge started (back in the 18th century) to spend a whole night inside the caves for a monetary prize. In the 1980s, two men attempted it for charity but the rules stated that they had to sleep separately. During the middle of the night, one heard the other screaming, and after finding his way towards him, found him unconscious with a disclocated arm. He has no recollection of what happened and had no history of epileptic fits. The challenge was discontinued after that.

I love a good ghost story, especially ones centred around historical places and buildings, like York, about half an hour from me, said to be the most haunted small city in Britain.

Do I believe? I'm undecided...
