About 300 Years Since the Martyrdom of Saints Brâncoveanu

The Saint Voivode Martyr Constantin Brâncoveanu belonged to the patrilineality of the Brâncoveanu boyars, while his mother, Lady Stanca, belonged to the well-known family of Cantacuzino. His father, Matei, also named Papa Brâncoveanu, died in a battle to defend the Hill of the Metropolitan Church in 1655, during the uprising of the hired foreign warriors. The upbringing of the one-year-old child is taken over by the high steward Constantin Cantacuzino, who had returned from studying in Padova, Italy.
