Theodor Balș: Viața de familie (II)

Genealogia și copilăria

Theodor Balș s-a născut la Iași în 1790 într-o familie de mari boieri moldoveni, figuri importante ale scenei politice și sociale din acele vremuri:

  • Constantin „Ciuntul” Balș (tată): fost caimacam (locțiitor de domnitor) al Moldovei;
  • Iordache Balș (unchi după tată): fost mare vistier (ministru de finanțe) și mare vornic (ministru de interne) al Moldovei; proprietar al moșiei de la Dumbrăveni – Suceava, unde l-a avut ca administrator pe tatăl lui Mihai Eminescu, Gheorghe Eminovici;
  • Lupu Balș (bunic după tată): fost vornic (ministru de interne);
  • Teodor „Todiriță” Balș (văr drept): fost caimacam al Moldovei, cunoscut pentru desființarea mai multor instituții ale statului (între ele Facultatea de Drept de la Iași, seminarul și gimnaziul Mănăstirii Neamț, Banca Națională de la Iași) și pentru convingerile sale anti-unioniste;
  • Anița Catargi (mamă): descendetă a familiei Catargiu.

Întreg arborele genealogic poate fi găsit aici.

Theodor Balș (cunoscut și sub numele de „Toderaș” pentru a fi diferențiat de Teodor „Toderiță” Balș, fostul caimacam anti-unionist), și-a petrecut copilăria la Iași. A studiat tot la Iași, pregătindu-se pentru o carieră în administrație și în politică, asemenea înaintașilor lui.

Căsătoria și descendenții

Căsătoria lui Theodor Balș cu Maria (Marghiolița) Bogdan a fost una foarte lungă, însă nu la fel de fericită. Se pare că firea curioasă și aventuroasă a Mariei n-a făcut casă bună cu stilul zbuciumat de viață al lui Theodor, mereu prins cu treburile domniei.

Cei doi se îndepărtaseră atât de mult încât Maria Balș a ajuns să părăsească domiciului conjugal din Iași fără știrea soțului ei pentru lungi excursii în Europa, sub pretextul nevoii de a efectua varii tratamente. Nemulțumit de purtarea soției, Theodor îi scrie mitropolitului Moldovei, cerându-i să-l sfătuiască și să intervină. Mitropolitul îi scrie o scrisoare de ultimatum contesei, cerându-i să revină grabnic acasă, sub amenințarea separării.

Un alt episod interesant se petrece la Chișinău, când boierii moldoveni se refugiaseră o vreme dincolo de Prut de teama Eteriei. În capitala Basarabiei, devenită în acea perioadă un paradis al distracțiilor mondene pentru boierii ieșeni refugiați, are loc o întâlnire memorabilă între Theodor și Maria Balș, pe de o parte, și celebrul poet rus Puskin, pe de alta. Dacă Maria (Marghiolița) avea deja renumele unei femei mai libertine decât i-ar fi stat bine unei contese căsătorite, Puskin dobândise la Chișinău prestigiul unui abonat al duelurilor pornite din te-miri-ce. Fiindcă Marghiolița a răspuns cu agresivitate la avansurile pe care i le făcuse Puskin, rusul s-a hotărât să-i ceară soțului ei socoteală pentru impolitețea nevestei. Pălmuit și invitat la duel de către Puskin, se pare că Theodor Balș n-ar fi răspuns provocării cu aceeași îndrăzneală. Duelul a fost evitat și conflictul aplanat prin poruncă de la stăpânirea rusă, care l-ar fi pus mai întâi pe Puskin sub arest la domiciliu, apoi l-ar fi repatriat sub escortă.

Acest gen de evenimente conjugale n-au fost menite să le inspire în bine pe cele două fete ale cuplului boieresc. Smaranda (Esmeralda) și Ana au avut la rândul lor căsătorii zbuciumate, ba și câte un divorț fiecare.

Câteva decenii mai târziu fetele aveau să risipească, puțin câte puțin, averea tatălui lor. Spre finalul secolului al XIX-lea Smaranda avea să vândă moșia de la Darabani, iar Ana – proprietățile de la Piatra Neamț, unde Theodor Balș deținuse jumătate din târg. Aceeași soartă aveau să o aibă și terenurile din mahalaua Păcurari a Iașilor, și ea deținută cândva de fostul hatman.

    Pontiac experimented with to make the downsized Phoenix attractive by offering two-door notchback and 4-doorway hatchback
    sedans in simple, luxury LJ, and sporty SJ trim (the latter two retagged LE
    and SE for ’84). Prices rose another $500-$700 for 1957, when Lincoln joined a well known Detroit development by supplying its initially
    4-doorway hardtops, dubbed “Landau” and offered in every
    single series. Twitch also attained a offer in 2018 to be the streaming spouse of the Overwatch League, with
    the internet site also providing an “All-Access Pass” with special content material, emotes, and in-game objects for Overwatch.
    The “pin-up” images became collectors things sought immediately after by the troops who greedily gathered and swapped
    them. After the announcement, several superior-profile streamers who ended up
    minimal by exclusivity, this sort of as Ninja and Pokimane, begun streaming on other
    platforms. The announcement came following Twitch declined
    a well known request for all streamers to have 70% subscription revenue,
    which lots of pointed out is the exact income

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type
    on a number of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content
    into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    На засушливой земле недалеко от угандийского города Юмбе, где почти 200 000 беженцев поселились в общине, известной как Биди-Биди, ученые возводят первое в своем роде пространство для художников и прочих деятелей искусств.
    Последние 7 лет Биди-Биди превратился из перспективного убежища для беженцев, бегущих от гражданской войны в Южном Судане, в постоянное поселение. Музыкальный центр Биди-Биди, который в сейчас только строится, будет представлять собой невысокий, наполненный светом амфитеатр из металла и камня, где будет студия акустической звукозаписи и музыкальный класс.
    Прямая металлическая крыша центра будет служить второй цели, помимо укрытия: она имеет форму воронки для сбора дождевой воды для людей. А снаружи будет возводиться древесный питомник и плантации.
    Центр, спроектированный архитектурной фирмой Hassell и LocalWorks, дизайн-студией, расположенной в столице Уганды Кампале, видится как редкий пример архитектурного новшества, посвященного искусству в перемещенных лицах. Это могло бы быть примером для новых поселков.
    Ксавье Де Кестелье, управляющий глобального отдела дизайна в Hassell, сказал, что он думает, что центр станет толчком для большего количества таких новшеств. Так как в последние годы количество беженцев на планете резко возросла, насчитывая 33 млн. в 2022 году, несколько временных поселений, такие как Биди-Биди, превратились в постоянные поселения, подобные городам. Поскольку климатический кризис усиливает погодные условия, что, в свою очередь, может привести к дефициту продуктов питания, ожидается, что число беженцев на планете будет неуклонно увеличиваться.
