Trivia

For the large battle scenes actual Romanian soldiers were used as extras, for both the ancient Romanian an Ottoman (Turkish) armies. During some scenes they took the fight a bit too serious. This augmented the realistic look of those scenes, but as the weapons were made of wood, not rubber, some of them got a few bruises from the experience. See more »

Goofs

In the closing scene King Mircea is standing on a dam made of large rocks (a common type of dam in Romania since ancient times), but it's clearly a modern construction, flat in the middle and covered with concrete. Ancient dams had no flat surface, being made only of irregular rocks. See more »

His greatest task is to pass the Proud Heritage of the Freedom to his sons, nephews and to all the romanians who live in his country.
