Chapter Summary

This appendix section of the book The Sons of Bayezid: Empire Building and Representation in the Ottoman Civil War of 1402-1413 contains the translation of Abdulüvāsi Çelebi, Ḫalῑlnāme, &t;The battle of Sultan Mehmed with Musa and the defeat of Musa&t;. On 28 July 1402, a great battle was fought on a plain outside Ankara. On one side was the army of Timur, "the last of the great nomad conquerors," who had spent the two preceding decades building a vast empire on the Mongol model. On the other was that of the Ottoman ruler Bayezid I ?the Thunderbolt', who styled himself "Sultan of Rum" in order to lay claim to the legacy of the Seljuks of Rum.
