Abstract:

The campaigns of 1443 – 1444 of Władysław III of Poland (Władysław of Varna) were among the most important events in medieval Europe during the 15th century. There are numerous historical sources about them – Polish, Hungarian, Ottoman, Czech, Italian, etc. Some of them have been translated into Bulgarian language, others still wait to be published. The aim of this publication is to present and analyze the translated versions of two historical sources unknown to Bulgarian historiography and not used by the researchers on the subject so far. The first source is “Il Regno degli Slavi” (“Тhe Realm of the Slavs“) by Mauro Orbini, and the second one is “A Short Novel about Skanderbeg”. These two sources provide important information about the two campaigns, and especially about the attitude of George Kastriot (Skanderbeg) to these events. They should be used by the Bulgarian researchers on the topic.

Keywords:

Władysław III of Poland (Władysław of Varna), the battle of Varna, historical source, campaign, historiography.
