Astrobeauties in Romania (49)

By Andrei Dorian Gheorghe (design Florin Alexandru Stancu)

Mircea the Elder ruled the Romanian Land of Wallachia in between 1386 and 1418.

His resistance against the Ottoman expansion to Europe marked his country’s destiny for a few centuries: Wallachia did not become a pashalik, but only a tributary state.

He also recovered Dobruja in for a while, so that after the definitive return of this province to its mother country in 1878, the municipality of Tulcea erected a statue for his memory right in the centre of the town.
