Vampire Chronicles Family Tree

If a vampire turns you into one of his kind, you could say, genealogically, that he or she is your parent. Others who were turned into a bloodsucker by the same vampire would then be your siblings. With this in mind, it is easy to create a genealogy chart of the vampires from Anne Rice's _The Vampire Chronicles_.



Interview With The VampireThe following chart is from the four novels: "Interview With the Vampire","The Vampire Lestat", "The Queen of the Damned", and "The Tale of the Body Thief". If you haven't read any of these books yet (and plan on doing so), you might not want to continue reading this.

On the chart, the "|" shows a human relationship (i.e. 'real' genealogy). The "I" shows a vampire relationship. The second chart, from "The Tale of the Body Thief", shows the trading of bodies that took place. At the top is the body, and beneath it are listed the souls who inhabited that body.

You can print out the chart below by copying it to your word processor. Make all margins zero inches and change the font to Courier Size 12. It should fill one page exactly.

By the way, "The Great Family" is especially interesting to us genealogists. About 4000 BC, Maharet had a daughter named Miriam. By becoming a vampire, Maharet, of course, became immortal and would thus live forever. So, for six thousand years, about three hundred generations, Maharet has been keeping track of the maternal descendents of her daughter Miriam. Cool, huh?

Anyway, enjoy the chart and you can contact me if you have any questions: Internet E-Mail address is stst@uclink4.berkeley.edu.

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
