Costea of Moldavia
Costea was a Voivode of Moldavia mentioned in a document from 1407 in line of rulers between Laţcu and Petru. Initially it has been thought that he ruled between 1373 and 1374, as the first ruler of Moldavia from the Muşat family. Also he was believed by some to have been born in Wallachia, being probably related to Basarab I's ruling family. More recent studies tend to consider him a son of Bogdan I.
