Transylvaniaball is a regionball of Romania-icon.png Romaniaball.

He was with Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball for a long time but at the end of the Great War he voted to join Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball who he's been with ever since despite Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball briefly stealing half of him with the approval of Nazi-icon.png 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.

Personality

Usually friendly, only gets annoyed when Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball claims him (as he desires to remain with Romania-icon.png 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).

Relationships

History

His history is controversial and a matter of debate.

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

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

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

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

The earliest written reference of Romanians in Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball that is non-controversial and accepted by both sides prelates to 1223, a royal charter in the Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png 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.png 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.png 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.png 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.png Romaniaball argues that the book says the truth while Hungary-icon.png 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.png Frenchball Academy argues that Anonymous is right about Romanians' presence in Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball.

Before World War 1 Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball was part of Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball a multi-ethnic state that owned way more clay than current Austria-icon.png Austriaball and Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball. In 1914, Austria-Hungaryball started World War 1 by invading Serbia-icon.png Serbiaball after Gavrilo Princip, a Serbian nationalist, assassinated Franz Ferdinand, the archduke Austria-Hungary-icon.png 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.png 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.png Romaniaball joined the Allied Powers (after the Allied Power's ultimatum "you join us, now or never!") and attacked Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball who was already with the Central Powers. His case of war was "to seize Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball, a region with majority Romanian population, from the Austro-Hungarian Empire".

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

In 1918, due to losing World War I, Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball died and split into: Austria-icon.png Austriaball, Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball, Czech-icon.png Czechoslovakiaball, and Panslavic-icon.png Yugoslaviaball. While Czech-icon.png Czechoslovakiaball and Panslavic-icon.png Yugoslaviaball were happy with their independence from Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball, the same could not be said for Hungary-icon.png 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.png Hungaryball lost:

Until the peace and thus the official loss of the territories was signed, as a last resort Hungary-icon.png 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.png USAball's president Wilson's principle of self-determination principle, the people Transylvania-icon.png 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.png Transylvaniaball requested union with Romania-icon.png Romaniaball which the Allied Powers and Romania-icon.png Romaniaball accepted.

Although Romania-icon.png Romaniaball was to gain Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball after the vote, at this time, the exact borders betwen Romania-icon.png Romaniaball and Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball were uncertain, as Allied Powers promised him that he would gain clay up to Tisa river, but Romania-icon.png 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.png Franceball that helped Romania-icon.png Romaniaball during World War 1), Romania-icon.png Romaniaball passes up to Tisa, but Georges Clemenceau (prime-minister of France-icon.png Franceball) is against it. After some discussion Georges Clemenceau agrees and Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball is asked to accept the new borders of Romania-icon.png Romaniaball.

However Hungary-icon.png 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.png Romaniaball to take back Transylvaniaball. Leading to the Hungarian-Romanian War of 1919.

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

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

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

After Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball's defeat, in 1920, the Treaty of Trianon was signed by Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball and the Allied Powers (16 countries) where Hungary-icon.png 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.png Hungaryball and the Allied Powers. Being officially a defeated state in world war 1 Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball had no words to say in the Treaty of Trianon, the terms were just imposed on them. Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball claims Trianon is injustice. Romania-icon.png 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.png Czechoslovakiaball with Romania-icon.png Romaniball and Panslavic-icon.png Yugoslaviaball formed the Little Entente with support from France-icon.png Franceball to ensure that Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball will not attempt to recover lost clay again. The alliance broke in 1938.

In the Second Vienna Award, in 1940, Nazi-icon.png Germanyball and Fascist Italy-icon.png 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.png Sovietball gave it to RS Romania-icon.png Romaniaball for seitching sides and helping him, but Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball still claims it.

There's is also controversy on Romanian people from Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball's treatment while they were under Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball. Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball argues that they were treated good, even better than Romanians in Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball and the nobility made no ethnical discrimniation. Romania-icon.png 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.png Romaniaball also argues that Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball was firstly of Dacia-icon.png Daciaball then of SPQR-icon.png SPQRball and Romanians are Daco-Romans so they were first. Hungary-icon.png 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.png Transylvaniaball wants to remain with Romania-icon.png Romaniaball.
