But the country was called Valahia. This name appears on contemporraneous maps.
Radu

Maps made by Romanians or by foreigners? Are the maps in Romanian or Latin?
The words Vlach/Walachia are exonymes (spelling?). They were used by the neighboring ethnicities when referring to Romanians. As the quote I posted earlier demonstrates, the term even arrived to be considered insulting, most likely in Transylvania where it was used by the three nations to refer to the 2nd class citizens that were the majority of Romanians.

In 1848 a special request of romanians from Transylvania was that they asked not to be called anymore by other nations as "wallachians" or "olah", but to be designated as romanians. The hungarian government took note of this request and started to give up the use of the name "olah" (the same as "wallachian").

I have no further intention to dissect the origins of names of countries or lands.
Yesterday I received a very unpleasant email because of this thread.
I am out!

OFF-TOPIC:

I do not want to interfere in what might be a private matter for Radu, but I want to make it clear that the mentioned e-mail was not form me. I'm not lending myself to this sort of things. Thank you.

Could be. What about this peinting? Looks like a Japanese and an Indian guys.

I know there were Indian units in 1944, in France, in SS... but a Japanese?

Now a 'guess what?'

In a corner of a small photo the following airplane can be seen. What type can it be?

I have an idea, but let's see what guesses others come up with.

I don't think it is a IAR-47. ;) The canopy seems different and this appears to be a biplane. Can it be a modified Potez 25 or Fleet?

Looks like IAR-47. My opinion...

C'mon, the I.A.R. 47 was a monoplane, this one is a biplane.
