Antioh Cantemir was born 4 December 1670 to Constantin Cantemir (1612-1693) and Ana Bantaș (c1645-1677) and died 1724 Constantinople, Turkey of unspecified causes. He married Caterina Ceaur (c1675-1708) 1696 .

Antioh Cantemir (1670-1726) , son of Constantin Cantemir and older brother of Dimitrie Cantemir was a Moldavian Voivode (Prince) between December 18, 1695 and September 12, 1700, and again from February 23, 1705 to July 31, 1707. He was buried at Golia Monastery.

Reign

He and Dimitrie successfully plotted against Prince Constantin Duca (who had obtained the throne, after having Dimitrie deposed by the Ottomans, with the backing of Constantin Brâncoveanu, Prince of Wallachia).

Unlike his father, Antioh was not averse to Poland; he also planned for an anti-Ottoman alliance with Russia (then under Peter the Great), one that was came to be during Dimitrie's rule - the full impact of Russia's growth had been felt after the 1699 Treaty of Karlowitz.

Although Cantemir increased taxes (especially during his second reign), he was a popular figure, generally viewed as a just and kind ruler. In 1707, he established the Princely Academy in his capital Iaşi, inspired by Chrysanthus, the Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem, but largely secular.[1]
