Chapter Summary

This chapter is mainly based on Venetian sources. They include the correspondence between Venetian organs of government and the Venetian Baili in Istanbul, Venetian ambassador in Spain and the Venetian secretary, or plenipotentiary, in Naples. Considering its protracted nature, its link to the highest echelons of government of several Mediterranean powers, one can expect that further research in other archives may produce more material on this affair. The first part of the chapter is therefore essentially a reconstruction of the events, based on Venice's diplomatic correspondence. The second part includes a historical analysis of these developments and their contextualization within the larger framework of the Mediterranean world during the 1570s and early 1580s. According to the letter of the Venetian envoy, even Schilizzi, the Corfiote shipmaster in charge of salvaging the Girarda, was lagging behind with his assigned job.

Keywords: Girarda; Istanbul; Mediterranean world; Venetian sources
