In the fall of 1600 he defeats count Mihai at Miriszló, then on the other years summer together with Mihai V., already, they defeat the third time returned count, Báthory Zsigmond, at Goroszló. He ruled over Transylvania between the years of 1601- 1604, by gaining absolute power from the emperor. During these years he practiced a terrible reign of terror: his soldiers were stilling and killing, and all the regions were depopulating in Transylvania. People got so poor, that they kept themselves into the cart and yoke, this is what being kept by tradition too: on the name of "Basta's cart".

Giorgio Basta was Italian[edit]

Giorgio Basta was Italian by birth and origin. It's wrong to describe him as "Austrian" general in the same way it is wrong to write in the section ethnicity "Albanian". He was of partly Arbereshe origin: the Arbereshe are Greco-Albanian communities living in Italy since the end of the Middle Ages, this making them absolutely Italian. It's possible to point out that it was from an Arbereshe village, if anything. But writing down that he was of Albanian ethnicity is ridicously wrong. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.34.173.82 (talk) 01:39, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Ethnicity issue[edit]

I've just spent half an hour trying to find any sources that name Basta as being Arbëreshe to no avail. The only information available on him is that he was probably either Albanian or Greek. I've tagged the page as being WP:POV. Unless some reliable, verifiable sources can be found on his ethnicity, the Arbëreshe has to go. Thank you. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 00:24, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
