Anna-Kallinichia Erzsébet; c. 1367 – 2 August 1439), also spelled Ana Calina (Romanian language: Ana-Călina

) and better known as Lady Calinica (Romanian language: Calinichia or Caliniţa , earlier in Bulgarian: Калиникіѧ, Kalinikĭę),[1] was the second (and most renown) wife of Radu I, a 14th-century Wallachian voivode (nobleman). Ultimately descended from the House of Basarab, she was a Byzantine princess born Caliphië (Greek: Καλιφιη, Kaliphiē).[2] Calinica was the mother of Mircea I of Wallachia; she outlived her husband by 56 years. Through Calinica the voivodes of Wallachia joined bloodlines with the Basarabs, ancestors of the notorious voivode Dracula.
