Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Michael the Brave (1558 - August 9, 1601) was the Prince of Wallachia (1593-1601), of Transylvania (1599-1600), and of Moldavia (1600), the three Romanian principalitiesnote 1 being joined under his reign for a short period of time. During his reign, which coincided with the Long War, these three principalities forming the territory of present-day Romania and Republic of Moldova were ruled for the first time by a single Romanian leader, though the union lasted for less than six months. He is regarded as one of Romania's greatest national heroes. His rule began in the autumn of 1593, and two years later the war with the Ottomans started, a conflict in which the Prince fought the Battle of C lug reni, considered one of the most important battles of his reign. Although the Wallachians emerged victorious from the battle, Michael was forced to retreat with his troops and wait for aid from his allies (prince Sigismund B thory of Transylvania, Emperor Rudolf II of Austria).show more
