How many brothers did Vlad Dracula have?

I just wonder, because I know for certain that he had Radu and Mircea. But I've also heard that there's Vlad the monk, Vlad the lesser and Milhail?

Could someone clarify this for me, I'd be most grateful :)

    I believe he only had two blood brothers, never heard of those other three before.
