Hi yall, i've spent the past few days reading Medieval Towns in the Romanian Principalities. I've learnt loads about the origins of various Moldovan cities but due to the conquest of Tighina (known as Bendery to the Russians) the book does not offer much background information behind the origins and history of this city. I was particularly interested whether or not the cetatea there was originally built by Stefan cel Mare or by the Mongols or perhaps another group. Does anyone know anything about this or could perhaps provide me with some sources (I can read English, French, Romanian, and a bit of Russian)? I would simply go visit the place myself but...i'm pretty sure that's not possible these days.
