Hazine 1339), on Suleyman the Magnificent’s last Hungarian campaign in 1566 (2012) and more recently, his study on the Ottoman imperial campaign against the Habsburgs in 1596 came out under the title Macaristan’da Bir Osmanlı Padişahı: Sultan III. Mehmed’in Eğri Seferi Rûznâmesi – 1596 (An Ottoman Sultan in Hungary: Sultan Mehmed III’s Eger Campaign Diary – 1596) (2016).I am most grateful to our editor Nükhet Varlık for her much valuable comments on earlier drafts, and to Maurizio Alfioldi for providing the transcriptions of the Venetian ambassadorial dispatches utilized in this study.
