Our approach attempts to reconstruct, as much as the existing documentation allows, the trajectory of the Knezes
of the medieval Banat for over a century, the temporal restrain imposed by the existing sources being doubled by
their frustrating nonexistence. The intense process of feudalism in the area, marked by reforms imposed by the
Angevin dynasty, led to adverse consequences for Romanian social structures, especially the Knezes, which are
seen stripped of their dominions. This is the moment when the institution loses its social and legal ascendancy and
decades to the statute of the subjects of the great feudal estates.
