The Tagalog people spoke of Mandurugo, a vampire who was described as “The Girl with Many Loves.”

The story is of a beautiful young woman who married at 16 to a husky young man; within a year, the husband withered away. After his death, the woman married again, with the same result.

She then married a third and fourth time, and the fourth husband, who had been warned, went to sleep one night with a knife in his hands. After midnight, he felt a presences over him and then a prick on his neck. He stuck the knife into the creature, and heard a screech and the flapping of wings. The next day his bride was found dead a distance away from their house with a knife wound in her chest.
