Chapter Summary

Apart from standard declarations to maintain peace and amity, contained in the instruments exchanged between the khans and the kings, one encounters a number of clauses typically entered in these instruments, which includes donation of lands to Lithuania, common friends and common enemies clause, specific provision to jointly attack Muscovy, and security of trade. A standard formula contained the khans engagement to restrain his subjects from raiding the royal domains and sometimes also his promise to punish the culprits. The provision to release captives and restore stolen goods was entered relatively rarely. One issue to be expected in instruments of peace exchanged between two neighboring states would be the demarcation of the common border. Yet, no formal demarcation was ever effected between the Crimean Khanate and Poland-Lithuania, even though demarcations were effected several times between Poland-Lithuania and the Ottoman Empire.
