Given high count of victims, Elizabeth Bathory is considered to be the most prolific female serial killer in history.
While Erzsébet Báthory was never tried, her accomplices were executed and the countess herself sent to spend the rest of her life under house arrest. She died after four years of living bricked in a set of rooms within her own castle (Cachtice Castle in present day Slovakia).
