Război is such an interesting word. Does anyone know about its etimology?

From a Common Slavic *orzbojь. Which means "plunder" I read. Compare Russian разбой (razboj, “robbery”), Serbo-Croatian razboj. Cf. also Aromanian arãzboi.

Thanks a lot. As a Brazilian, many Romanian words are familiar to me. But it's the ones of Slavic influence that interest me the most. Here's a lingot. =)
