The Basarabs (also Bazarabs or Bazaraads, ) were a family which had an important role in the establishing of the Principality of Wallachia, giving the country its first line of Princes, one closely related with the Muşatin rulers of Moldavia. Its status as a dynasty is rendered problematic by the official elective system, which implied that male members of the same family, including illegitimate offspring, were chosen to rule by a Council of boyars (more often than not, the election was conditioned by the military force exercised by candidates). After the rule of Alexandru I Aldea (ended in 1436), the house was split by the conflict between the Dăneşti and the Drăculeşti, both of which claimed legitimacy. Several late rulers of the Craioveşti claimed direct descent from the House after its eventual demise, including Neagoe Basarab, Matei Basarab, Constantin Şerban, Şerban Cantacuzino, and Constantin Brâncoveanu.

Rulers usually mentioned as members of the House include (in chronological order) Mircea the Elder, Dan II, Vlad II Dracul, Vlad III the Impaler, Vlad the Monk, Radu the Great, and Radu de la Afumaţi.
