Moldavia (Romanian: Moldova), officially the Principality of Moldavia (Romanian: Țara Moldovei) is a nation in southeastern Europe.
Under Prince Bogdan III (who took the throne in 1504), the country carried out a number of government reforms to make administration more efficient and effective. He also made the principality a vassal of the Ottoman Empire, for protection from enemies. Additionally, the military was increased to the size of 15,000 men and was also reformed under his rule. Several new infrastructure projects were begun during Bogdan III's reign, including a major one to improve the country's roads. He died in 1522, succeeded by his son Ştefan IV.

It also had good relations with the Principality of Rhodes, whose leader, Prince Phillipe I, was married to the daughter of Moldavian Prince Bogdan III. Moldavia also had an economic alliance with Wallachia.
