Fun fact (because I stumbled over it literally yesterday and thought it was really funny to stumble over one dynasty in such a short period of time): Pretty much all the power of the dynasty of Habsburg was gained by forgery of documents, the "Privilegium Maius" to be precise. The dynasty did have its high time around 1273, where Rudolf I. became King of the holy roman empire. The rise of the dynasty came to a sudden halt when the nephew of the second Habsburgian king killed his uncle out of greed. The crone went to the Luxemburg Heinrich VII. and the Habsburgians where out of the game for a while. But in 1359, Rudolf IV. had the idea to create a document that would give his house huge advantages for taxes, areas, courtsystems... inspired by the real existing "Privilegium Minor". While Karl IV. never accepted his claims after a historican revealed them as the plump forgeries they were. However, almost 100 years later, the Habsburgian Friedrich III. became king in 1442 and Emperor in 1453 and validated those documents, which were then considered accurate (without anyone remembering that they were actually proven to be fake before) until the old empire was disbanded and a historican proved them wrong again in the middle of the 19th century. So, here is really long historical fun fact, nobody asked for xD (that might aswell have been the inspiration for game of thrones xD). The link to the source for this is (, for anyone bothering to read the long version in german ;)

This theory seemed less thought out than the usual. I think MatPat is stretching himself thin. He says he can prove that Count Chocula is the product of inbreeding simply based on a chin but there's only 3 generations to work from and he only talks about two that prove there was none. He mentions that Vlad Tepes had the chin but quickly followed it saying that Vlad wasn't imbred. Don't get me wrong, a lot of fun info in here but a theory on an inbred cereal mascot this is not.

I mean, the novel "Dracula" takes place in, at the time, modern day. Right? At least it takes place in 1897 within the Castlevania timeline (still love that the novel, or at least a version of its events, is canon to Castlevania). So that puts the gap between Dracula and Chocula less than a century. Also, in Castlevania, a Dhampir or at least Alucard, seems to have all the powers of vampires with none of the downsides.

I didn't know that any of the "Monster Cereals" existed as a child. I don't know if my grocery store just didn't have them or I just never noticed, but I had no idea until like 2010 when I started actively using the internet. Are they less popular in the midwest? Then again, MatPat is also from the midwest, right?

New "Count Chunkula" brand cereal! *a portly count in brown now beyond the strength to summon up any form of human emotion is photographed for a cereal box in a dimly lit and sparsely decorated annex and stares abysmally at a slowly sogging mass of chocolate. If only his father had returned with the cigarettes he was so fond of... or the type AB+ juice bags usually brought home for his mother just before dawn, wearing a pale smile with the eyes of a fish. He could have at least brought alfred's beloved chocolates..... just a few back.... alfred would have shared of course. On the third night his mother returned from searching alfred asked if she knew when his papa would return, with warm words and warm red dripping from her pronounced chin she replied, "Oah, meh leetle shuggar poff, I don't know..." with comedic ice she added "... und that thot Cherri dozen't knoo either.... >:p". Maybe things..... could have been better.... with just a few... chocolates....) NOW WITH SUGARY CHOCOLATE CHUNKS!
