White Wallachia was a Byzantine term for the region between the Danube and the Balkan mountain.[1] It is not to be confused with the Great Wallachia or the Little Wallachia.[2] It was also referred to as Asen's Wallachia in the records of the French knights Guillaume de Rubrouquis and Geoffroy de Villehardouin.[3] It was called white to otherwise distinguish from the "Black Wallachia", which was Moldavia (or part of it).[2]

An account stated that the color in the appellation is attributed to the white sheep skin cap and cloak worn in winter.[4] Those who belong to Black Wallachia wore black cap of the same material.[4]
