The circumstances and the date of Vlad's return to Wallachia are uncertain.  He invaded Wallachia with Hungarian support either in April, July, or in August 1456.   Vladislav II died during the invasion.  Vlad sent his first extant letter as voivode of Wallachia to the burghers of Brașov on 10 September.  He promised to protect them in case of an Ottoman invasion of Transylvania, but he also sought their assistance if the Ottomans occupied Wallachia.  In the same letter, he stated that "when a man or a prince is strong and powerful he can make peace as he wants to; but when he is weak, a stronger one will come and do what he wants to him",  showing his authoritarian personality.
