Günhan Börekçi is Assistant Professor of History at İstanbul Şehir University. After completing his BA and MA studies at Boğaziçi University (19911999), Börekçi received his PhD degree in history from the Ohio State University in 2010. His main areas of research and teaching include early modern Ottoman political, dynastic, and social history, the seventeenthcentury crisis, military history, and traditional archery. In addition to numerous articles and encyclopedia entries on Ottoman history, he has published with Ahmet Arslantürk a facsimile edition of Feridun Ahmed Bey’s illustrated chronicle, Nüzhet-i Esrârü’l-Ahyâr der Ahbâr-ı Sefer-i Sigetvar (Topkapı Palace Museum Library, ms. 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. The following discussion is partly based on my PhD dissertation: Günhan Börekçi, “Factions and Favorites at the Courts of Ahmed I (r. 16031617) and His Immediate Predecessors,” PhD diss., Ohio State University, 2010.

Author affiliation details are correct at time of print publication.
