the same archive, together with topographic, statistical documents, etc. are kept
several lists of Moldovan and Wallachian boyars from the beginning of the 19th
century, the information being signaled in them is extremely important for
Romanian prosopography. For example, under no. 79 we have the "List of
Moldovan boyars, information about their dignities and possibilities", containing
detailed data about the country's great boyars, their origin, influence and
wealth. In contrast, for the Muntenian boyars we have the list no. 138,
indicating for each character the function he occupied at the time of drafting
the document. In addition to the ones already mentioned, we want to introduce
in the scientific circuit the list of boyars written in French (no. 120).
