Petru I was Voivode (prince) of Moldavia from the end of 1367 to after July 1368. He is now generally accepted to have been the son of prince Ştefan, oldest son of voivode Bogdan I of Moldavia.[1][2][3][4] However, previously, he has previously been considered to be the son of Costea of Moldavia with a daughter of Bogdan I according to the historian Juliusz Demel. [5]

In 1387 he married Sofija, the daughter of Vytautas. In the same year on 23 September he paid homage to Jadwiga and Władysław II Jagiełło in Lviv. In a document of 27 January 1388 in Lutsk, Jogaila referred to him as his son-in-law (thus he was accustomed to refer to the husbands of his nieces) which led the historian Jan Tęgowski to suggest that Petru later married a daughter of Danutė of Lithuania and Janusz I of Warsaw.
