JOHANN SCHILTBERGER PDF

I, Johanns Schiltberger, left my home near the city of Munich, situated in Payren, at the time that King Sigmund of Hungary left for the land of the Infidels. All that I saw in the land of the Infidels, of wars, and that was wonderful, also what chief towns and seas I have seen and visited, you will find described hereafter, perhaps not quite completely, but I was a prisoner and not independent. But so far as I was able to understand and to note, so have I [noted] the countries and cities as they are called in those countries, and I here make known and publish many interesting and strange adventures, which are worth listening to. From the first, King Sigmund appealed in the above-named year, thirteen hundred and ninety-four, to Christendom for assistance, at the time that the Infidels were 2 doing great injury to Hungern. There came many people from all countries to help him; 1 then he took the people and led them to the Iron Gate, which separates Ungern from Pulgery and Walachy, and he crossed the Tunow into Pulgary, and made for a city called Pudem.

Johann Hans Schiltberger — c. He was born of a noble family, probably at Hollern near Lohhof halfway between Munich and Freising. Travels Edit Schiltberger joined the suite of Lienhart Richartinger in , and he then went off to fight under Sigismund, King of Hungary afterwards emperor , against the Ottoman Empire on the Hungarian frontier. At the Battle of Nicopolis on September 28, , he was wounded and taken prisoner; when Schiltberger had recovered the use of his feet, Sultan Bayezid I Ilderim took him into his service as a runner During this time he seems to have accompanied Ottoman troops to certain parts of Asia Minor and to Egypt.

He also probably followed his new master in his attack on the Old Bulgaria of the middle Volga, answering to the modern Kazan and its neighborhood. It is assumed that he died around In this regional geography the descriptions of Brusa; of various west Caucasian and Armenian regions; of the regions around the Caspian, and the habits of their peoples especially the Red Tatars ; of Siberia; of the Crimea with its great Genoese colony at Kaffa where he once spent five months ; and of Egypt and Arabia, are particularly worth notice.

His allusions to the Catholic missions still persisting in Armenia and in other regions beyond the Euxine, and to non-Roman? Christian communities even in the Great Tatary of the steppes are also remarkable.

Schiltberger is perhaps the first writer of Western Christendom to give the true burial place of Muhammad at Medina: his sketches of Islam and of Eastern Christendom, with all their shortcomings, are of remarkable merit for their time: and he may fairly be reckoned among the authors who contributed to fix Prester John , at the close of the Middle Ages , in Abyssinia.

Schiltberger also recorded one of the first European sightings of Przewalski horses. Manuscript in the Munich Municipal Library, Sign. His work, however, contains many inaccuracies; thus in reckoning the years of his service both with Bayezid and with Timur he is off unaccountably in multiples of two.

Venice supplied a naval fleet for supporting action, while Hungarian envoys encouraged German princes of the Rhineland , Bavaria , Saxony , and other parts of the empire to join. French heralds had proclaimed the crusade in Poland , Bohemia , Navarre , and Spain , from which individuals came to join. The report of 3, English knights comes from contemporary Antonio Fiorentino, and was taken as fact by historian Aziz S. Atiya and others following him. A thousand knights would have actually amounted to "four to six thousand men and at least twice as many horses", counting foot-soldiers and other retainers. However, there are no records of financial arrangements being made in England to send a force abroad, nor of any royal preparation needed to organize and dispatch such a force. Atiya also thought that the invocation of St.
