Wallachia - first ruler - BASARAB I
Bătălia de la Posada 1330 (Basarab I vs Carol Robert de Anjou)
Prince of Wallachia
Basarab I, also known as Basarab the Founder, was a voivode, and later the first independent ruler of Wallachia who lived in the first half of the 14th century. Many details of his life are uncertain. Although his name is of Turkic origin, 14th-century sources unanimously state that he was a Vlach. Basarab came into power before 1324, but the circumstances of his ascension are unknown. According to two popular theories, he succeeded either his father, Thocomerius, or the legendary founder of Wallachia, Radu Negru.
