Batthyany Saddle
Ceremonial saddle from the time of Sigismund of Luxemburg, cca. 1408–1425
Many bone carvings on this ceremonial saddle, which was purchased by Miklos Jankovich in Bucharest, feature themes connected with St. George and the Dragon. These themes were favoured at court. However, we also see the emblem of the Order of the Dragon, which was founded by King Sigismund. This underpins the legend that the saddle originally belonged to Vlad III (Vlad the Impaler), prince of Wallachia, a ruler also known as Vlad III Dracula, on account of his membership of the order.
