Transylvaniaball is a region of Romania-icon Romaniaball.

He was with Kingdom of Hungary-icon Hungaryball for a long time but at the end of the Great War he voted to join Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball who he's been with ever since despite Hungary-icon Hungaryball briefly stealing half of him with the approval of Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball in 1940 and constantly trying to reclaim him in subsequent years.

He's very well known for being a vampire and for the well known legend of Vlad the Impaler "Dracula" written by the Irish writer "Bram Stocker" and also known for Hotel Transylvania and The Bran Castle.


Usually friendly, only gets annoyed when Hungary-icon Hungaryball claims him (as he desires to remain with Romania-icon Romaniaball) or if he gets called gypsy.

He also gets a weird appetite for blood during the night (this indicates he's truly a vampire).



His history is controversial and a matter of debate.

It is accepted that Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball was ruled by:

  1. Dacia-icon Daciaball. (168 B.C. - 106 A.D.)
  2. SPQR-icon SPQRball. (106 - 271)
  3. Gepids-icon Gepidsball. (330 - 568)
  4. Avar-icon Avarball. (568 - 804)
  5. BulgarianKhanateball-transp First Bulgarian Empireball. (804-ca. 1000)
  6. Hungary-icon Hungaryball. (around 1200 - 1526, 1940 - 1944)
  7. Romania-icon Romaniaball. (1918 - Present)

However Hungary-icon Hungaryball historians argue that when they arrived in Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball the land was empty and they were the first and Romanians migrated later in the 13th century Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball.

While Romania-icon Romaniaball historians argue that when Hungary-icon Hungaryball arrived in Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball they were already there but were subjugated by Hungarians.

The earliest written reference of Romanians in Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball that is non-controversial and accepted by both sides prelates to 1223, a royal charter in the Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball confirming a former grant of land. It refers to the transfer of land previously held by the Romanians to the monastery of Carta, which proves that the territory had been inhabited by Romanians before the monastery was founded (1202).

There are other royal charters attesting the presence of Romanians in more counties, for instance in Zarand from 1318, in Bihor and in Maramures from 1326, and in Turda from 1342. The first census was in 1842 ordered by Austrian Empire-icon Austrian Empireball and shows a population of 62% Romanians and 23% Hungarians. The census was made by Hungarian Fényes Elek. While there are contradictory estimations made by modern historians about the population before 1842, no official document or census prove that Hungarians were a majority at anytime.

Romania-icon Romaniaball also bases his view that he was in Transylvania first on Gesta Hungarorum "The Deeds of the Hungarians". A Hungarian chronicle written by a Hungarian about the Hungarian conquest of the Carpathian Basin at the turn of the 9th and 10th centuries, the chronicle also identifies Hungarians' ancestors as the ancient Scythians.

The author of Gesta Hungarorum is anonymous but described himself as "P who is called magister, and sometime notary of the most glorious Béla, king of Hungary of fond memory", The identification of this King Béla is subject to scholarly debate, because four Hungarian monarchs bore this name. Most historians identify the king with Béla III of Hungary who died in 1196. Anonymous dedicated his work to "the most venerable man N" who had been his schoolmate in an unspecified school.

In Gesta Hungarorum is described how when Hungary-icon Hungaryball arrived in Transylvania there were 3 Romanian counties that they conquered: of Gelu, Glad and Menumorut. However having no other sources to Anonymous' sayings the validity of the book is a matter of debate. Romania-icon Romaniaball argues that the book says the truth while Hungary-icon Hungaryball argues that the book is full of lies as a book written 200 years after the event is not a safe source.

Denis Deletant, a British historian, argues that while Anonymous's work is a matter of debate it is certain that Romanians were part of the community and were in Transylvania before Hungarians came. Edouard Sayous in a work awarded by the France-icon Frenchball Academy argues that Anonymous is right about Romanians' presence in Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball.

Before World War 1 Hungary-icon Hungaryball was part of Austria-Hungary-icon Austria-Hungaryball a multi-ethnic state that owned way more clay than current Austria-icon Austriaball and Hungary-icon Hungaryball. In 1914, Austria-Hungaryball started World War 1 by invading Serbia-icon Serbiaball after Gavrilo Princip, a Serbian nationalist, assassinated Franz Ferdinand, the archduke Austria-Hungary-icon Austria-Hungaryball. Gavrilo Princip was part of a secretive Serbian military group known as the Black Hand, whether the Black Hand had ties with the Serbia-icon Serbiaball government or acted on their own is unknown and still a matter of debate. There is much controversy about who was the main cause for World War I, or better said who was the one to blame.

In 1916 during World War I, Romania-icon Romaniaball joined the Allied Powers (after the Allied Power's ultimatum "you join us, now or never!") and attacked Hungary-icon Hungaryball who was already with the Central Powers. His case of war was "to seize Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball, a region with majority Romanian population, from the Austro-Hungarian Empire".

There is no controversy over this one as Austria-Hungary-icon Austria-Hungaryball's census in 1910 based on primary used language showed 53.8% Romanian, 31.6% Hungarian population while Romania-icon Romaniaball's census in 1919 showed 57.1% Romanian, 26.5% Hungarian population.

In 1918, due to losing World War I, Austria-Hungary-icon Austria-Hungaryball died and split into: Austria-icon Austriaball, Hungary-icon Hungaryball, Czech-icon Czechoslovakiaball, and Panslavic-icon Yugoslaviaball. While Czech-icon Czechoslovakiaball and Panslavic-icon Yugoslaviaball were happy with their independence from Austria-Hungary-icon Austria-Hungaryball, the same could not be said for Hungary-icon Hungaryball, who while happy for becoming independent (he also tried in 1848 to become independent in a revolution but failed) on one side, he lost 2/3 of his clay.

Hungary-icon Hungaryball lost:

Until the peace and thus the official loss of the territories was signed, as a last resort Hungary-icon Hungaryball tried to offer cultural and administrative autonomy to the minorities, but they refused, stating that they desire to be separated from him.

On 1st of December 1918 the National Assembly of Transylvania was formed. Where based on USA-icon USAball's president Wilson's principle of self-determination principle, the people Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball were allowed to choose their own fate. The Romanians and Germans voted in favor of union with Romania, while the Hungarians voted against the union with Romania. As a ressult of the vote, Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball requested union with Romania-icon Romaniaball which the Allied Powers and Romania-icon Romaniaball accepted.

Although Romania-icon Romaniaball was to gain Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball after the vote, at this time, the exact borders betwen Romania-icon Romaniaball and Hungary-icon Hungaryball were uncertain, as Allied Powers promised him that he would gain clay up to Tisa river, but Romania-icon Romaniaball already signed The Peace of Bucharest treaty which put the Allied promise up to question.

With the support of Henri Mathias Berthelot (A general from France-icon Franceball that helped Romania-icon Romaniaball during World War 1), Romania-icon Romaniaball passes up to Tisa, but Georges Clemenceau (prime-minister of France-icon Franceball) is against it. After some discussion Georges Clemenceau agrees and Hungary-icon Hungaryball is asked to accept the new borders of Romania-icon Romaniaball.

However Hungary-icon Hungaryball government would not accept this ultimatum and resigned as an act of protest. The next day the communist party takes the power and attacks Romania-icon Romaniaball to take back Transylvaniaball. Leading to the Hungarian-Romanian War of 1919.

Initially the attack was successful as Romania-icon Romaniaball was taken by surprise, but the next day Romania-icon Romaniaball counter-attacks and takes back all the lost territory. Then stops again at Tisa river. Hungary-icon Hungaryball decides to attack Czech-icon Czechoslovakiaball instead, they are winning and France-icon Franceball promises that if Hungary-icon Hungaryball will retreat from Czech-icon Czechoslovakiaball they will give them back the clay from Tisa to the current borders.

Hungary-icon Hungaryball accepts and retreats its troops from Czech-icon Czechoslovakiaball, when France-icon Franceball asks Romania-icon Romaniaball to retreat also to their new borders, Romania-icon Romaniaball replied that he would comply only after the Hungary-icon Hungaryball army would have demobilized.

Upon hearing the Romania-icon Romaniaball demands, Hungary-icon Hungaryball answered that from now on he would rely solely on the might of his army and attacked Romania-icon Romaniaball. Eventually Romania-icon Romaniaball won, occupied Budapest, removed the communist party, kept Transylvaniaball, and looted Hungary-icon Hungaryball. Under the pressures of France-icon Franceball, Romania-icon Romaniaball gave Hungary-icon Hungaryball the clay from Tisa river to the current borders back. In 1920 Romania-icon Romaniaball left Hungary-icon Hungaryball.

After Hungary-icon Hungaryball's defeat, in 1920, the Treaty of Trianon was signed by Hungary-icon Hungaryball and the Allied Powers (16 countries) where Hungary-icon Hungaryball accepted the loss of the lands. As they signed no peace treaty before, Trianon maked the end of world war 1 between Hungary-icon Hungaryball and the Allied Powers. Being officially a defeated state in world war 1 Hungary-icon Hungaryball had no words to say in the Treaty of Trianon, the terms were just imposed on them. Hungary-icon Hungaryball claims Trianon is injustice. Romania-icon Romaniaball claims Trianon is justice. From then on the Treaty of Trianon became a central element in Hungarian nationalism.

After Trianon in 1920, Czech-icon Czechoslovakiaball with Romania-icon Romaniball and Panslavic-icon Yugoslaviaball formed the Little Entente with support from France-icon Franceball to ensure that Hungary-icon Hungaryball will not attempt to recover lost clay again. The alliance broke in 1938.

In the Second Vienna Award, in 1940, Nazi-icon Germanyball and Fascist Italy-icon Italyball has judged the situation and has decided to give back Northern Transylvania. According to the Romanian 1940 census, the population of Northern Transylvania was 50% Romanian and 37% Hungarian. 1,300,000 Romanians and 970.000 Hungarians out of 2.600.000 people. According to the Hungarian 1940 census, the population of Northern Transylvania was 48% Romanian and 38% Hungarian. 1,150,000 Romanians and 911,000 Hungarians out of 2.400.000 people. After the Second World War, Soviet-icon Sovietball gave it to RS Romania-icon Romaniaball for seitching sides and helping him, but Hungary-icon Hungaryball still claims it.

There's is also controversy on Romanian people from Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball's treatment while they were under Hungary-icon Hungaryball. Hungary-icon Hungaryball argues that they were treated good, even better than Romanians in Wallachia-icon Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball and the nobility made no ethnical discrimniation. Romania-icon Romaniaball argues that they were treated poorly and had no nobility of their own, and every noble would be more favorable to peasants of his own culture even before the nationalist movements of 19th century.

Romania-icon Romaniaball also argues that Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball was firstly of Dacia-icon Daciaball then of SPQR-icon SPQRball and Romanians are Daco-Romans so they were first. Hungary-icon Hungaryball argues Romanians are not of Daco-Roman descent. While the Romanian language definitely descends from the Vulgar Latin, several well-supported theories address the issue of the origin of the Romanians. The most worldwide accepted theories are the Daco-Roman continuity and the immigrationist.

The Daco-Roman continuity argues that Romanians are mainly descended from the Daco-Romans, a people developing through the cohabitation of the native Dacians and the Roman colonists in the province of Dacia Traiana (primarily in present-day Romania) north of the river Danube. The immigrationist states that Romanians commenced in the provinces south of Danuble with Romanized local populations (known as Vlachs in the Middle Ages) spreading through mountain refuges, both south to Greece and north through the Carpathian Mountains. Both theories pinpoint Romanians' ancestry to Daco-Romans.

Being mostly Romanian Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball wants to remain with Romania-icon Romaniaball.
