Chapter Summary

The “age of Ottoman rule” spans from the battle of Mohács to the Peace of Karlowitz (1699) prolonged to the Peace of Požarevac (1718) in the Temesköz region. Ottoman studies in Hungary have concentrated on this period, while the medieval history of Ottoman–Hungarian and Ottoman–Croatian relations was mainly researched by war historians. Therefore, such aspects of the early history of Ottoman–Christian relationship as slave trade has not been investigated yet. This chapter presents two cases; the sources of the cases, date from 1481 and 1522, afford an insight into customs of keeping prisoners. The Ottoman prisoners held captive in Buzsin insidiously (per insidias) broke out of the prison and killed the guards. The capture of Belgrade filled them with audacity. The adventurous liberation of the captives from Buzsin occurred sometime in late 1521 or beginning of 1522.

Keywords: Hungarian Kingdom; Ottoman Empire; Ottoman prisoners; Ottoman–Christian relationship; Ottoman–Croatian relation; slave trade
