And for the world. Write a really good Romanian historical, and if it sells well, and gets translated, your book will be a window into Romanian history for a lot of people.
And, for a lot of Westerners, Romania is Nadia Comaneci, Nicolae Ceaușescu and vampires. A wide, untapped history remains for you to explore.

I was going to respond that YES, historical fiction is still of interest today! I absolutely feel people are (still, or maybe even more now) interested in parts of the world/of history that aren't as widely known! go for it!
