"From 1459 onward the pope repeatedly appealed to the Christian powers to join in a common crusade and he raised the monies to subsidize such a concerted movement [against the Ottoman empire]. Dracula alone responded to his call." 
(taken from: Dracula, prince of many faces; his life and his times; by R. Florescu & R. McNally)
