Moldova not Moldava! It is a Country Between Romania and Ukrain (based on the geographics of 2005). Moldavian People are an ethnic group of people. About 200 D.C. to 1300 years ago the lands today called Moldova and Romanian Moldova were one part of the slavic lands that were called Tivertsi! They spoke the slavic language and were not different from Russians. After years pased the Dacian tribes and Tiverian tribes mixed. From them became the descendants the Moldovans. They speak mostly latin language called Moldavian in Moldova but Romanian in Romania. It is wrong to consider Moldavians as brothers of Romanians. Moldavia existed since 1400's but Romania was the name of the country that United Wallachia and Moldova in 1800's. ( I think 1859).
Stefan Cel Mare was one of the most popular Moldavian Prince.
Never Call a Moldavian a "Romanian".

1. Firstly, the name refers to the historical territory of Moldova. To make the difference between the territory and the country, the latter is called the "Republic of Moldova
", and represents only a bit more then a third of the historical Moldavian lands.
2. When the Roman
administration withdrew from Dacia
in 275, the local population was already in an advanced process of Romanization, partly because of all the settled Romans or mixed couples after almost 200 years of Roman administration, and partly because of the more advanced status of the Roman culture & language. Most of them kept identifying themselves with their Roman origin (hence the names Romania/Romanian today), however - throughout the course of history - some of them chose to identify themselves with the territory they were living in. One example is Moldova - which took the name of the Moldova River (area around which the Land of Moldova started to develop - today in North-Eastern part of Romania).
So the l...
A small nation between ROmania and Russia, often conquered by both with periods of independence in between. There was a period of communism
within the last century as well. (My great great grandmother was Moldavan.)
Damn those Moldavans and their Kalashnikov toting idiots, causing shenanigans here and there!
