Muntenia, also known in English as Greater Wallachia is a historical region of Romania, usually considered Wallachia-proper.
It is situated between the Danube (south and east), the Carpathian Mountains (the Transylvanian Alps branch) and Moldavia (both north), and the Olt River to the west.
The latter river is the border between Muntenia and Oltenia (or Lesser Wallachia).
Part of the traditional border between Wallachia/Muntenia and Moldavia was formed by the rivers Milcov and Siret.
