Chapter Summary

This chapter presents Document 40, which comprises the letter of agreement sent by khan Ghazi II Giray through his envoy, Djan Ahmed Chelebi. The letter was written in the month of Rebi, in the year 1010, and it was sent to King Sigismund III. Some documents were issued by the Crimean side: three of them can be classified as donation yarliqs, nine as donation yarliqs cum şartnames, six as şartnames, nineteen as ahdnames, three as oathyarliqs, and six as others. Most of these documents were issued by the khans, but four were issued by the qalgas (1527, 1637, 1640, and 1667, the latter issued collectively by the qalga and other Crimean notables), one by the nureddin (1640), one by the khans son and heir apparent who yet was not a qalga (1517), and two by the Crimean envoys sent to Poland (1541 and 1599).
