The revolutionary character of the pandurs action in 1821, first stated by Nicolae Bălcescu and strengthened by the subsequent researches of the Romanian historians, maintains its actuality 200 years away from events. The Romanian revolution of 1821 was the beginning of a long process by which the modern Romanian nation was formed. At the beginning of the 19th century, the Europe of the restored monarchies was ready, after the Congress of Vienna (1814), to sanction any assertion of the ideals of national and social freedom. The political ideals of the Romanian revolution of 1821 matured and were gradually realized, in a European political context, later more favorable. The legitimacy and legacy of Tudor Vladimirescu revolution were confirmed by the subsequent course of Romanian history, in accordance with the European course.
