Summary/Abstract: Having an age confirmed in the fifteenth century, Ghenghea family started to gain political importance in the sixteenth century, when some of its members held dignitaries, and reached its peak during the next century, when Ionaşco Ghenghea became great logofăt of Moldavia (1616-1634). His followers went into anonymity. They reappear in the eighteenth century aware of their boyar origin and in modernity they were recognized as such, being given boyar ranks, among the latest Tudori Ghenghea in 1858, probably a sympathizer of the anti-unionism in Moldavia.
