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.

A Romanian legend says that a young king named Bat, went once to discover the country. So, he came to a village where a witch lived.
