When I talk about Romania, or rather about Transylvania, I believe there is something that most people don't realize: Transylvania was once a part of Hungary. Northern Transylvania was a part of Hungary from 1940-1944. Depending on whom I talk to, I find they use different terms or frames of reference for what happened during that period of time. (This division of Transylvania between 1940 and the end of the Second World War is commonly known as the Second Vienna Awards)
Before this time, maps show that the territory was very different. Before 1919, Transylvania was a part of the Kingdom of Hungary, but there were many ethnic Romanians living in Transylvania as well. When Romania became a princedom and then a Kingdom, there was more of a push to unite with Romania.
history books published about this period of time, and many of them focus on Romania and Hungary.
Romania and Hungary are members of the European Union and seem to co-exist well with one another. There are still tensions, but they seem to have lessened over the years or at least they are less visible from the perspective of Western Europe and North America. Still, it is interesting to learn about both countries have something in common: Transylvania.
