1 November 1784

The Revolt of Horea, Cloșca and Crișan (31 October 1784 – 14 December 1784) began in the Metaliferi Mountains, Hunedoara, but it soon spread throughout all Transylvania and the Apuseni Mountains. As mouthpiece for the Romanian peasants, Horea traveled to Vienna often in the years from 1779 to 1782 to explain the hardships of the Transylvanian peasantry and lack of representation, without any result. On November 1st, the revolt reaches Curechiu, Hunedoara and quickly spreads to the neighboring counties. Civilian casualties were about 4,000 people from 133 settlements. The uprising reverberated throughout western Europe.
