The Goldy Party or Goldis' Party, officially called "The National Party of Romanians in the Hungarian Country" (Rou: Partidul Naţional al Românilor din Ţara Ungurească) between 1916 and 1918 and "The Romanian National Party of Crisana" (Rou: Paritdul Naţional Românesc din Crişana, abbreviated PNRdC) was the party of Vasile Goldiş formed after the breakup of the National Romanian Party in 1916. The original reason the party formed was the position its members took towards the Romanian intervention in the First World War. The main reason the split occurred was that a part of the party members wanted to maintain neutrality and good relations with Austria, a group of people headed by Vasile Goldiş, and another group of people that wanted to side with Romania and the Entente, a group leaded by Alexandru Vaida-Voevod, which before the assassination of Franz Ferdinand wanted a confederation in Central Europe, but saw the opportunity of unity with Romania. In 1918 when the war ended the great powers decided to cancel any former treaties with Romania due to its capitulation to the Central Powers in early 1918, so Transylvania couldn't unite with Romania, while the party of Goldis established the Free State of Transylvania earlier in October, but because of lack of support in Transylvania he managed to get control only of Crisana, thus he declared the Free State of Crisana in December 1918. The party continued to exist until 1937 when it merged with the Transylvanian party. In 1951 the Romaian National Party outside Romania joined the Christian Peasant's Party in Romania after the union of Transylvania and Romania was recognized.
