Voivode of Wallachia. Mihnea cel Rău, the son of Vlad III Dracula (Vlad Țepeș), and his first wife, was Voivode (Prince) of Wallachia from 1508 to 1509, having replaced his first cousin Radu cel Mare. During his reign, he ruled alongside his son Mircea III Dracul in the year 1509. After he fled Wallachia in 1510 while being pursued by the Craiovescu faction, he was finally cornered in the Roman Catholic Church of Sibiu where he was attending Mass. As he was leaving the service, he was stabbed by Dimitrije Iakšić, a Serbian partisan of the Craiovescu faction. Mihnea is buried in this church and his tomb can still be visited today.
