Here is the former Culture Minister's explanation for banning the DNA testing of the bodies of Wallachian and Moldavian princes/voievozi:

QUOTE
"Poate că pentru ştiinţă ar fi importantă prelevarea de ADN, dar, din respect pentru ceea ce au reprezentat domnitorii Ţării Româneşti, nu pot fi de acord cu prelevarea de ADN. Este important că aceşti domnitori au marcat istoria naţională şi prea puţin important dacă au avut sau nu o ascendenţă cumană. În calitate de ministru, am dat dispoziţiile necesare pentru a se opri prelevarea de ADN şi pentru a verifica cercetarea ştiinţifică în ansamblul ei"

It would have been more useful to the Romanian history to establish the kinship of the occupant of tomb nr. 10 at Curtea de Arges to Mircea cel Batran. Provided that the few bones left in the tomb at Cozia are Mircea's. This way, we would probably know for sure if the skeleton is of Radu I or Vladislav I.

Hmm, apparently there was already made studies on Moldavian "domnitori" (Musatinii)

http://www.ziuaveche.ro/stiinta-it/stiinta...nilor-9203.html

<Acelaşi lucru a fost dovedit şi prin cercetările genetice ale doamnei Georgeta Cardoş, cercetător ştiinţific biolog la Institutul Naţional de Cercetare “Victor Babeş”, care a investigat mormintele domnitorilor moldoveni de la Rădăuţi. Geneticienii au demonstrat astfel că urmaşii lui Bogdan I nu erau cumani, aşa cum susţineau recent unii istorici din ţara noastră.>

I don't have Neagu Djuvara's book at hand right now, but as far as I recall the discussion regarding the Cuman origin of the princes was not about Moldavia, but about Wallachia.

What do they expect to prove with such "DNA tests"?
There was a similar study before www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0041803

Indeed! The book is mainly about Thoctomer ("Negru-Vodă") and there aren't references to the territory of the future Moldavia (or the "marks" in there) - which, btw, in the period in discussion, wasn't even mentioned!
