Chapter Summary

This chapter uses the term donation yarlıq because its main content was the khans donation of numerous territories to the recipient. In the summer of 1514, Mengli Giray sent a new embassy, provided with a new, slightly reedited version of his instrument, which again can be described as a donation yarlıq cum şartname. The earliest seventeenth-century Crimean instrument of peace that is preserved today in the Turkish original, is the one issued in 1632 by Djanibek Giray, during his second reign. Within its text, it is referred to as ‘ahdname three times, but also once as şartname, and once as yarlıqin the introductory formula. In 1513, after Mengli Giray had pronounced his oath in the presence of Lithuanian and Polish envoys, the text of his oath was recorded, brought to Vilnius and entered into the Lithuanian Register books.
