Personally, I think King Matthias II orchestrated the entire thing to wipe out his debt to the family. He owed her late husband, Ferenc Nadasdy,
money. A LOT of it. Why? they were wealthier than King Matthias. They owned more land, had more money, and controlled more of the population than the
royal family did. Ol' Lizzie and Ferrie loaned him a buttload of money to fight the Ottomans, King Matt couldn't cover the cost of war with royal
Plot twist: Ferenc, who went off to fight said Ottomans, entrusted the care of his wife & kids to the guy who eventually investigated her, Gyorgy
Thurzo. Gyorgy, funnily enough, was made a Vice Regent just before the investigation kicked off. Can we say "I'll kick you a few perks for your
trouble if you get rid of her & that pesky debt"?
Also, buddy Gyorgy was already well-acquainted with the Lutheran minster who accused her. And Gyorgy didn't catch her in the act like he claimed, she
was already IN custody at the time he claimed that he caught her. The timing didn't quite mesh there with that lie, oops.
Bottom line is, King Matthias II owed Elizabeth and the late Ferenc a hell of a lot of money. Upon her conviction, every single thing of theirs was
now the king's. Cool vampire serial killer story brah, but you simply framed someone and took everything they had so you didn't have to pay down your
