In the 10th century, the Pechenegs, Cumans and other Turkic groups increased in power. In 1045, the Cumans, under the leadership of the Kypchak ruler Kagan, defeated the Pechenegs and the Bulgars in the Battle of Zlatograd, forcing them to accept a peace treaty that effectively gave Kagan control of the provinces of Dobruja and Sibiu. Kagan's son, Arpad, expanded Kagan's holdings north and east of the Lower Danube and became the founder of the Pecheneg state in the early 11th century. The king of Hungary, Stephen I, who supported Western European missionaries, defeated the local chieftains and established Roman Catholic bishoprics (office of a bishop) in Transylvania and Banat in the early 11th century. Significant Pecheneg groups fled to the Byzantine Empire in the 1040s; the Oghuz Turks followed them, and the nomadic Cumans became the dominant power of the steppes in the 1060s. Cooperation between the Cumans and the Vlachs against the Byzantine Empire is well documented from the end of the 11th century. Scholars who reject the Daco-Roman continuity theory say that the first Vlach groups left their Balkan homeland for the mountain pastures of the eastern and southern Carpathians in the 11th century, establishing the Romanians' presence in the lands to the north of the Lower Danube. 827ec27edc
