Memes, Http, and 🤖: D-O-Do DARK SIDE OF DIMENSION Risah Honor di Kastil Cachtice Slovakia HUMANDoD Sebuah kastil di Slovakia menjadi bangunan yang bisa membuat bulu kuduk merinding. Sebab Cachtice ini dulunya menjadi saksi bisu pembantaian ratusan gadis muda oleh seorang bangsawan kejam. Kastil yang berdiri sejak abad ke-13 ini disebut-sebut menjadi salah satu tempat pembantaian manusia paling mengerikan di dunia. Dulu ada seorang bangsawan wanita bernama Elizabeth Bathory yang menetap di kastil Cachtice pada akhir abad ke-15 hingga awal abad ke-16. Wanita ini juga menganut paham pemuja setan dan ilmu sihir. Saat Elizabeth memasuki usia 40 tahun, dia mulai khawatir kecantikannya akan pudar dan takut suaminya akan meninggalkannya karena kulitnya mulai keriput. Dia kemudian mulai mencari gadis-gadis muda untuk memuaskan kebiasaannya. Setelah mencari para gadis malang, dia mengikat mereka di atas bak mandi. Dengan sadis, Elizabeth menyayat urat nadi mereka dan darah segar yang mengucur ke dalam bak mandi digunakannya untuk mandi. Elizabeth yang telah kehilangan akal sehat itu beranggapan bawha mandi darah akan membuatnya tetap cantik dan awet muda. Selama tahun 1585-1610, diperkirakan sebanyak 600 lebih gadis muda tewas dan diambil darahnya untuk mandi oleh Elizabeth Pada bulan Desember tahun 1610, Elizabeth akhirnya ditangkap bersama dengan tiga pelayannya. Para kaki tangannya itu dihukum mati dengan cara dikubur hidup-hidup. Elizabeth tidak diadili, namun dia dikurung di sebuah kamar kecil di dalam kastil, hingga akhirnya tewas pada 21 Agustus 1614. Meski hingga saat ini belum diketahui pasti dimana dia dikuburkan Kisah sadis yang dilakukan Elizabeth Bathory dikenal sebagai sejarah kelam di Eropa, khususnya bagi masyarakat Slovenia.
