The Night Attack of Târgovişte was a battle fought between forces of Vlad III the Impaler of Wallachia and Mehmed II of the Ottoman Empire on Thursday, June 17, 1462. French writer, Victor Hugo, wrote about the conflict in his poem La Légende des siècles (The Legends of the centuries). The film Bram Stoker's Dracula begins in 1462 with the Ottoman invasion of Wallachia; a night battle takes place (ostensibly the Night Attack), ending with Vlad Ţepeş' victory.
