The Night Attack (1462)

The Night Attack was a battle fought between the forces of Wallachian Prince Vlad III, known as Vlad the Impaler, and the forces of Mehmed II, sultan of the Ottoman Empire. After Vlad raided Bulgaria and killed more than 20,000 Turks and Bulgarians, Mehmed marched on Wallachia, and the two powers fought a series of skirmishes.

Ha, ha, ha!
He was more a maniacal lunatic than a nice character. He actually killed and tortured anyone who was against him: turks, bulgarians and even rumanians. He lost the throne being betrayed by the nobility because of his cruelty. The punishment for any crime (stealing, for example) was IMPALING! He was too cruel even for the 15th century. That's quite a performance.
