Vladislav I (Bulgarian: Владислав I Romanian: Vladhyslao I[1]) of the Basarab dynasty, also known as Vlaicu-Vodă, was a ruler of the principality of Wallachia (a part of modern-day Romania) (1364 – c. 1377).

He was a vassal of the Bulgarian Emperor Ivan Alexander.[2] In February 1369 Vladislav I subdued Vidin[3] and recognised Louis I of Hungary as his overlord in return for Severin, Amlaş, and Făgăraş. In 1373 Louis I took Severin again but the Vlachs recovered it in 1376–1377.
