Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Sons of Bayezid: Empire Building and Representation in the Ottoman Civil War of 1402-1413 contains the table of contents, preface, list of abbreviations, transliteration and pronunciation, and list of maps. In the Battle of Ankara, the Ottomans were completely crushed and their Sultan was taken prisoner. Contingents from the absorbed Anatolian beyliks crossed over to their former lords, who were on Timur's side, and Sultan Bayezid was left with his janissaries and Serbian vassals. Following his victory, Timur spent nine months in Anatolia with his armies, pillaging the countryside, looting Bursa and other Ottoman towns, and reconstituting the Turkish beyliks that Bayezid had dispossessed in creating his empire.
