17 min





Brother you say?!

When you sold our country

to the Turks

and you robbed me of my throne

was I still your brother?

You know the truth,

you just don't want to admit it.

- What do I know?

- We're little, unimportant.

Our destiny

is to obey the strong ones.

If you could only understand...

I don't want to rule

over people living on their knees,

to tarnish their souls

with lies and deceit,

forcing them to comply to strangers.

You sentenced me to death!

You sign your own sentence

if you step foot on this land again.

Don't forget the blood spilled

here and at Rovine.

And don't forget me!

You had a bad dream,

Your Highness.

I dreamt that I was young.

And I dreamt of that night.

- When I forgave Dan, my brother.

- May he rot in Hell!

I'm sorry...

And I dreamt a dark water.

I'm getting old and I feel the burden

of my responsibilities.

I don't want my hand or my thought

to tremble.

Don't you say anything?

I'm listening, Your Highness.

He's waiting for you.

That's my man!

I won't hide you the fact that

the discussions with your husband,

the co-regent prince Mihail,

are very difficult.

He's not very determined.

His Majesty Sigismundus,

king of Hungary

and emperor of Germany...

Our son, prince Dan.

I'm secretly raising him according

to the principles

of our Mother,

the Roman Apostolic Church.

Very well...

Sigismundus is the first sword

and the last hope of Christianity.

The fact that he's willing to accept

the vassalage of the Romanian kingdom

is a great honor for you.

My daughter...

His Highness, Mircea,

can't understand this truth.

If you want your husband

to rule as soon as possible,

help him understand.

Make him understand.

Force him understand!

Only by accepting the protection

of the great Sigismundus

can he be crowned as ruler.

As long as old Mircea is alive...

This little detail

is up to the Providence, my daughter.

What's wrong?

Come in!

Straight ahead!

At the top of the stairs there's

a place overlooking the terrace.

Don't let your hand shake!

Lords Udova and lercau want us

to reach an understanding

and that's why they're here,


Prince Mihail, it's an outrage!

I'm sent here

by king Vladislav of Poland.

I shouldn't be going

around in a priest's clothes

just because you can't seem

to make up your mind.

- Although they're in great danger.

- God help us!

Make up your mind, Your Highness,

our new Sun!

You're co-regent prince. You have

equal rights with your father.

Use them!

Just a candle.

God help us!

I read Vladislav's letter.

Along with his military help,

he offers us his protection.

What am I to understand?

That the war against the Ottomans

will be lead by His Majesty,

at the time chosen

by His Majesty.

We're little.

What can we do by ourselves?

And who can force my father

to obey to the king of Poland?

Your Highness, if you want to rule.

Or Providence...

Sometimes, we can lend a hand...

Grandpa, I don't like it when you lay

there with your eyes closed.

Grandpa, are you immortal?

Why are you asking?

Because I hear some saying:

"This one is not going to die!"

Did you visit the troops

near the Danube?

I did.

You're walking around

at your old age,

instead of resting your hoary bones.

That's what Mom says.

But she says it with love.

Aunt Elisaveta says it with anger.

And others too.

There are three things

that I always hated.

The scared soldier,

the proud fool and the traitor.

Whether he was a lord

or a commoner.

If so, I won't tell you anything.

But you'll be sorry.
