Rocker Dani Filth was once stalked by a woman who believed she was the reincarnation of 'Blood Countess' Elizabeth Bathory.

The Cradle of Filth frontman admits he received regular correspondence from the delusional fan, written as if she was the infamous 16th century Hungarian noblewoman who allegedly bathed in the blood of virgins, while he was on tour in America.

He says, "Strangely enough, I was her husband from the Middle Ages... I met her a couple of times, and she was really into it."

Bathory was accused of killing young girls sent to her for etiquette lessons. She died a recluse locked in her castle in 1614.

Filth admits the fan who thought she was the notorious serial killer is one of many odd groupies he meets on the road.

He tells Hustler magazine, "I had a fan who gave me his grandmother's thigh bone, which was cool - and odd."
