The Revolt of Horea, Cloșca and Crișan (31 October 1784 – 14 December 1784) began in Zarand County, Transylvania, but it soon spread throughout all Transylvania and the Apuseni Mountains.
The leaders were Horea (Vasile Ursu Nicola, 1731–1785), Cloșca (Ion Oargă, 1747–1785) and Crișan (Marcu Giurgiu, 1733–1785).
The uprising was ended by Horea on 14 December 1784, at Câmpeni. Afterwards, in January 1785, the leaders were captured by treason. Horea and Cloșca were executed by the Hungarian authorities by breaking on the wheel on 28 February 1785 at Dealul Furcilor (Forks Hill), Alba-Iulia. Crișan hanged himself on the night before the execution.
