Many tales of Bathroy’s escapades were: she bathed in the blood of young servant girls, and of virgins to retain her beauty. One day a servant accidentally poked her finger with a dressing pin, the blood dripped onto the back of Elizabeth’s hand. Instead of wiping it away, she rubbed it into her skin, giving it a “rosey”, glow. After this- many a village girl would go missing due to Bathroy’s alleged “Thirst for Blood”.
