Prince Constantin Racoviţă (1699-1764) was twice monarch of Principality of Moldavia from Ottoman government: 31 August 1749 – 3 July 1753 and 29 February 1756 – 14 March 1757; and also twice of Muntenia: July 1753 – c. 28 February 1756 and 9 March 1763 – 28 January/8 February 1764.[1] He struggled against the powerful boyars in Wallachia, exiling their leaders to Cyprus. Due to continued opposition he asked for a transfer to Moldavia.[2]

He was the son of Mihai Racoviță and Ana Codreanu.[citation needed]
