The term Daco-Roman describes the Romanized culture of Dacia under the rule of the Roman Empire.


The Daco-Roman mixing theory, as an origin for the Romanian people, was formulated by the earliest Romanian scholars, beginning with Dosoftei from Moldavia, in the 17th century,[1] followed in the early 1700s in Transylvania, through the Romanian Uniate clergy[2] and in Wallachia, by the historian Constantin Cantacuzino in his Istoria Țării Rumânești dintru început (History of Wallachia from the beginning), and continued to amplify during the 19th and 20th centuries.[3]
