Trajan in song, story & screen

Traian has inspired a slavic pagan beliefe in him as a god of the night, but only in the Balkans.North of the Danube he is a mythical figure preserved in balads as a great king that drew the first plough, constructed defensive mounds and practicaly put the roots for a new country.In romanian "troian" means earth/snow mound,"trai"=life and "a trăi"=to live, but also "traistă"=a fairly big sack with a big handels and a few more.There's also this Traian Băsescu, a misleading character, that is famous for his campaign logo: Să trăiți bine! =May you live well(prosperouse)! wich, as any corrupt politician, made it impossible for Romania to recover economicaly untill now.
But Traian is a fairly used surname in romanian, alond Decebal(ironically is the dacian king that fought the romans with great success for some years before being defeated and took his life dramatically).This two names inspired tones of written texts.
