Stephen “the Old” in the Chronicle of Giacomo di Pietro Luccari | p. 113–118

Giacomo di Pietro Luccari, Moldavian dynasty, parallel chronicle, the old Stephen voivode


The chronicle of Giacomo di Pietro Luccari from 1601 mentions twice “Stefano Batrin”, none other than Stephen the Great of Moldavia. A compared analysis of the data provided by this historical writing on Wallachia and Moldavia leads us to the idea of the existence of a first parallel chronicle, in Romanian, written for the use of prince Petru Şchiopul, the first Wallachian ruler to climb on the throne of Moldavia in 1574.
