Basarab I of Wallachia

Basarab I (c. 1310/1319‚Äď1352) was an early ruler of the principality of Wallachia from perhaps as early as 1310 until 1352. He is sometimes referred to as √éntemeietorul ("The Founder"), given his role in the creation of the state, together with his position as common ancestor of rulers in the Basarab dynasty.
