The last battle between Traian, the king of Roman Empire and Decebal, the king of Dacia

We all know that along the history there were many wars and many victims , we know that nothing will repair their damages, but we know one thing, that we can learn from their mistakes. For example we are here with two big enemies Decebal the king of Dacia (today the South part of Romania) and Traian the king of the Roman empire.

They hated each other very much. A lot of people died because of them. So why we don’t go back in time to see their mistakes. We are here in the year 106 now a big war is happening and as you can see there are only ruins and dead people, but wait it looks like there are 2 soldiers left… oh wait those are the two kings Decebal and Traian.

Alexandra, Andrei and Robert from Romanian team, present you a short performance about the last battle  between the kings Traian and Decebal.

The end is very sad, Decebal killed himself, such a shame.  Traian is going home to celebrate his victory , that got Dacia under his power for 170 years.

In Rome, the capital of Italy, is an important monument called Traian Column, where are sculptured in stone the sequences of the battles between Dacian and Romans, showing the Dacians’ bravery to defend their land.

Ecaterina Teodoroiu ,,The hero from Jiu “

Ecaterina Teodoriu was born in 1894 in Vadeni, on the outskirts of Targu Jiu. Immediately after Romania entered World War I, Ecaterina enrolled as a nurse, and after her brother died in a battle, she decided to join the front.

During the fighting, proving a lot of courage, Catherine was raised to the rank of second lieutenant by the decision of Queen Maria and received the command of an infantry squadron. Under her command, the soldiers were able to win important battles to defend the land. In March 2017 King Carol was decorated with the “Military Virtue” 2nd class for the bravery and devotion he showed on the battlefield.

In August 2017, during a fight on the Moldovan front, he was injured by two bullets and she died, at 17 years old, encouraging her soldiers. Her last words were: “Go forward, you are with me!”

Called ” The hero from Jiu ” Ecaterina Teodoroiu is the only example in Romania’s history, as a young woman with country love, with a rare sense of duty and unremitting courage, to fight to the supreme sacrifice for the ancestral land.

Historical facts and myth in legends

Boruta was a devil and also a noble man who died because of his greed and thoughtless behaviour. Now I will present a film but later we will tell you a legend. What is really interesting is a metaphorical sense of it, connected even with German history or inhumane instincts the Nazi had. Destruction, killing and meanness.
