Payment of the Tribute to the Ottoman Empire by the Principality of Transylvania

 

In 1638, under Prince Rákóczi György I., Daniel Mihály was named emissary, encharged with the payment of the annual tribute to the Ottoman Empire. He  was sent to Constantinopole  with 10000 gold coins, and valuable golden gifts, trained falcons and  harnessed horses. The scene depicts this important mission, the person on the left side being the Ottoman Sultan , Murad IV.
