Vlad the Impaler, Dracula, took on Bdin
Vlad the Impaler, Dracula, took on the Bulgarian lands from Vidin to Nikopol in the first months of 1462. 23 883 people were killed and impaled in that campaign, not counting these who died in the burnt down towns and villages along the northern border of the Ottoman's empire.
Vlad himself described in detail that carnage in his letter of 11 February 1462 to Matheus Corvin. There are other historic records that Vlad III Tepes, Dracula, took on the Bulgarian lands and on Bdin. There are records of witnesses' acconts of those events in 1463.
The medieval German poet Michel Becheim wrote in his poem "About a villain named Dracula, Voivode of Wallachia":
Four hundred fifty-two
The King's soldiers took the stronghold
