Versified account of the death by the hand of Ottoman officials of the Wallachian Prince Constantin Hangerli (1797-1799), in Bucharest, on 17 February 1799. Three versions have survived: one by “Zilot Românul” and two by unknown authors. The Prince was not at all a popular character; however, his tragic end proved hard to forget.
