Hungarian King Matthias in Moldavia. In Hungary this is the year of King Matthias Corvinus – a celebration of the height of the Hungarian Renaissance. Here we have a historical-ethnographical study attesting to how the memory of King Matthias lives within the ethnic Hungarian Csángó people in Moldavia today, along with historical references to King Matthias himself having actually been in Moldavia – with particular reference to the villages of Klézse (Cleja, Romania) and castle ruins in Moldvabánya (Baia, Romania).
