Abstract: Originating from the locality of Băbeni, where the family took their name, Băbeanu boyars are attested for the first time at the end of the 15th century, when the documents mention a certain Staie. Significant for the history of Băbeanu family is also Băbeni estate located by Olteț river, or Băbeni-Oltețu. The name of this family is related to an impressive architectural monument from the village of Băbeni-Oltețu, a ‘cula’-a semi-fortified building, which, unfortunately, has not been preserved. The date for the construction is not known precisely, because there are not sufficient documentary proofs for drawing-up the complete history of Băbeanu family. It is very possible that the 18th century was the period when the building of the cula began. Initially, the cula had a rectangular shape, a 12m height to the roof, and four levels (a ground-floor and three floors).
