Ion Neculce

Ion Neculce
Born 1672
Died 1745
Known for The Chronicles of the land of Moldavia (from the rule of Dabija Vodă to the second rule of Constantin Mavrocordat)

Ion Neculce (1672–1745) was a Moldavian chronicler. His main work, Letopiseţul Ţărâi Moldovei [de la Dabija Vodă până la a doua domnie a lui Constantin Mavrocordat] (The Chronicles of the land of Moldavia [from the rule of Dabija Vodă to the second rule of Constantin Mavrocordat) was meant to extend Ion Neculce's narrative, covering events from 1661 to 1743.

Life

Ion Neculce was born in 1672. Under Antioh Cantemir he was made a spătar (holder of the royal sword and bludgeon and second in rank in the army after the voivode), but achieved his highest rank under the rule of Dimitrie Cantemir when he was made grand hatman for supporting Peter I of Russia in the Russo-Turkish wars.

When the Russians lost the war Ion Neculce alongside Dimitrie Cantemir went to Russia and spent a few years there until 1719 when he returned to Moldova, where under the rule of Constantin Mavrocordat was appointed vornic. This was his last function before dying in 1745.
