Description
Versified account of the reign of the controversial Wallachian Prince Nicolae Mavrogheni (1786-1789; † 1790), from his raise to power until the occupation of Bucharest by the Austrian army (October 1789). Unlike the anonymous author tackling the same subject, Hristache pitar is more sympathetic to his (anti-)hero. The text might date from 1817. N.A. Ursu has tried to discover the identity of the author, yet his efforts remain hypothetical.
