The Romanian Country (Wallachia) is a Romanian feudal state, created at the beginning of the century XIV between the Carpathians, the Danube, Siret and Milcov. At the middle of the century XVI, the Romanian country recognized the suzerainty of the Ottoman Empire, but remained an autonomous state, in exchange for the payment of the tribute.
Vlad Dracul was the ruler of the Romanian Country between 1436 and 1442 and from 1443 to 1447.
Member of Basarabilor family and son of Mircea cel Bătrân. The Lord of the Romanian Country was officially a vassal of the King of Hungary.
He was also a border commander with the responsibility of protecting trade routes between the Romanian Country and Transylvania for the Roman Catholic Church. Although Vlad was in favor of the Catholic Church, it is known that he killed members of the rival line of the Bessarabians, the family of Danes.
Wallachia is a state that emerged in the Middle Ages, whose territory was initially limited to the north by the Carpathian Mountains, and a part of the territory of the Romanian Country had been part of the Roman Empire between 105 and 271. The battle of Posada was the war of independence of the Romanian Country.
The period of turmoil in the Romanian Country coincided with a similar period in its main antiottoman ally, Hungary. During the dynastic battles for the Buda throne, the stability of the Hungarian kingdom was ensured by a Transylvanian nobleman of Romanian origin, Ioan de Hunedoara, who became voivod of Transylvania.
He intervened in the dynastic struggles of the Romanian Country, supporting Draculae and strengthening the reign of Vlad II Dracul.
In the Romanian Country, Vlad Țepeș rose against the Ottomans in 1459, even started raids on the right of the Danube and achieved what the Crusaders had not succeeded 65 years ago – to occupy Nicopolis. Vlad’s Ottoman expedition led to a resounding failure in 1462, the sultan himself being close to being killed in the night attack in the Ottoman camp near the capital Târgoviște.
Vlad Țepeș was at that time a very controversial figure. Authoritarian and bloody gentleman, he often resorted to cruel punishments. He was known especially for the death penalty by firing in the stern, a cruel method even by the standards of the time.
First documented in 1459 by Vlad Tepes, Bucharest is the main city of the region and the capital of Romania.
