Neidhart von Reuenthal[edit]

User:Borsoka, do you know anything about this source[1] ? 86.127.8.126 (talk) 17:26, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

No. As far as I remember Reuenthal writes of Walves (=Cumans). Armbruster (who is cited by Curta) tends to identify Romanians everywhere (e.g. he refers to Constantine Porphyrogenitus's remark of the inhabitants of the Dalmatian towns as a proof of the Roman conciousness of the Vlachs).

Were romanians the latest nomadic ethnic group?[edit]

VLACHS (Romanians) WERE THE LATEST NOMADIC ETHNIC GROUP IN EUROPE. Vlachs were known as late - nomadic people in medieval chronicles. The first romanian vlach churches were built only around the turn of the 13th and 14th century. No known archiutecture existed before that period. The romanian literacy and chronicles appeared only in the 15th century.USE Google books!
