Historical Background[edit]

Lord Ruthven appeared as the titular character in Dr. John William Polidori's short story The Vampyre, written in 1816. Dr. Polidori was an acquaintance of Lord Byron, a British poet and leading figure of the Romantic era in Britain, and the story was misattributed to Lord Byron in its first publication in 1819. The story was an immediate success, and Lord Ruthven appeared in operas and other novels until overshadowed by Bram Stoker's Dracula in 1897.
