The Brides of Dracula are fictional characters in Bram Stoker's 1897 novel Dracula. They are three seductive female vampires who live with Count Dracula in his castle in Transylvania, where he provides them with victims to feed upon, mainly infants and children.

Like Dracula, they are immortal shapeshifters repulsed by religious objects. In chapter three of the novel, two are described as dark haired and the other as blonde, though in some film adaptations one is red-headed, one is blonde, and one is brunette. The Brides of Dracula usually meet their ends whether it be by a stake in the heart, decapitation, or sunlight.
