In the 17th century, after a long rivalry for supremacy in the Oriental Latin countries, the Christian Orthodox rulers of two Romanian states, Wallachia and Moldova, decided to make peace.

To sustain the brotherly of their countries (two centuries before their union), the “voievod” and “domnitor” of Wallachia, Matei Basarab, made a church in Moldova, while the “voievod” and “domnitor” of Moldova, Vasile Lupu, made a church (the Stelea Monastery) right in the Capital City of Wallachia, Targoviste, where I found an artistic reproduction of the coat of arms of this former state, including the Sun and the Moon.
