• Subiect: From Princely Residences to Capital of Valachia (14th-17th Centuries) In the early days of Valachia medieval state the rulers (princes) did not have a single city to stay in. They have led the early medieval state from those settlements called princely residences. Those settlements where the prince resided and issued (signed) the documents) have acquired this quality. Romanian princes have had the first settlements as rulers of the state in Câmpulung Muscel, Curtea de Argeş, Târgovişte, Gherghiţa, Râmnic, Giurgiu and so on. In the mid-fifteenth century Bucharest has acquired this status, too. By changing trade routes, geographical location, defense possibilities, and increasing population in the mid-seventeenth century Bucharest became the capital of Valachia. This was the second largest city in South-East of Europe after Istanbul. The prince’s residence was set in Bucharest, appointed capital in documents, deriving from caput regnis. It served as residence for the prince, for boyars, for Orthodox Metropolitan, the treasury was kept in it, the court trials and their hearings were held there, there stood the army commander. Since then, the mid seventeenth century, Bucharest has progressed and continues to grow, recognized as all-Romanians capital.
