Janos Hunyadi and the Romanians

Postby Shish-kabob-Forrest » Thu May 24, 2007 4:06 am

How important is Janos Hunyadi to the Romanians and how do the Romanians see him?
Blessed is he who shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is his brother's keeper. And I will strike down those who attempt to destroy my brothers and you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

He is an important figure in the Romanian History and very much appreciated for his valiant attitude towards the Ottomans and also for the fact that his father, was of Romanian descent (Cneaz Voicu).

He is known as Iancu de Hunedoara in Romania. In 1441 he became Voievode of Transylvania. His second son, Matei Corvin became King of Hungary on January 24, 1458.
