Description[edit | edit source]
Transylvania is a historical territory in what is now Romania, inhabited by Romanians, Hungarians and Saxon Germans. Transylvania became a principality under nominal Hungarian suzereignty when that country started to crumble under the Ottoman incursions. During the Reformation, Transylvania was the first country in Europe to proclaim religious freedom. The principality lost its independence to Habsburg Austria in 1711.
