Iernut (Hungarian: Radnót) is a small town in Mureş County, central Transylvania, Romania. The town has a rich history, dating from the Neolithic Age (4500-2500 î.C.). Here were found also archeological traces of a Roman colony from the 2nd-3rd centuries. First attested in 1257 as terra Ranolth (the name comes from the Germanic name Reinold of the owner of feudal land), Iernut belonged to the early Romanian stately formations in the Middle Ages (cnezat, Gelu Voivodeship), the Voivodeship of Transylvania dominated by the Hungarian nobility (12th-16th centuries), the Transylvanian Principality under the Ottoman suzerainty (17th century), the Habsburg Empire (17th-19th centuries), the Austro-Hungarian Empire (1867-1918).
