abstract

Against the backdrop of a disputable imperial succession to the Ottoman throne, fifty‑one Muslim merchants from Bosnia demand compensation from the Venetian authorities for the loss of their goods. In the framework of a dramatic crescendo of political conflict inside and outside the Ottoman Empire, Sultan Osman II described his rise to power in a sophisticated letter to Doge Giovanni Bembo. In the same text, he pledged to restore the ancient friendship between the two States, against their common enemies. In this context, where tradition and innovation find themselves tightly intermingled, a solution for Bosnian subjects was ultimately found.
