Tudor Moldoveanu (1780-1840, Târgovişte) was a member of the deputation appointed by the townsmen to represent them in front of the State Council, in the controversy with ruler Alexandru Sutu for the estate of the town. The ruler put pressure on the deputation, banished the hostile boyars, arrested and tortured the members of the deputation, then forced them to accept his justice. In 1831, the community of the town compensated Tudor Moldoveanu for his expenses, made at the „the inprisonment for the estate of the town”.
