Gh I. Tasca

The Tașcă family is a Romanian family of landowners. Several members of the family have made their presence felt in Romanian politics, literature, sciences and arts.

The family traces its roots to the Middle Ages, to a certain Dragoş Cneaz of Giulești in the province of Maramureș documented in 1319. His son, Giulea, Cneaz of Giulești is documented as having moved to Moldavia on September 15, 1349, probably in the suite of voievode Dragoș. For several generations the family still kept its fiefdom in Maramureș. During the reign of Alexander the Good, the family took the name of Giulici, Danciu Giulici being known to have been member of the voievode's council in 1421.

The male part of the family becoming extinct, the lineage was continued through marriage to the Jora family, through Todirașcu Jora, staroste of Tecuci. (1552). In 1606, Marica Jora married Avram Mișihănescu, the lineage being afterwards again transmitted in 1671 by the marriage of Tudosca Mișihănescu to Vasile Balaban. The last of the Balaban's was Great Captain Constantin L. Balaban (1780–1845) who only had two daughters:

  • Maria Balaban, who married Captain Dumitrache Gh. Tașcă
  • Paraschiva Balaban who married one of her cousins, Ion Balaban.
