This chapter gives translations of Muslim accounts of the battle of Manzikert dating from the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. All these late accounts, presented here in chronological order, are written in Persian. They come from Mongol territories – Anatolia, Iran and Afghanistan – and they show how far the legend of Manzikert had spread and become embellished. Each of these translations is accompanied by a detailed commentary, analysing their content, style and the specific context in which the author is writing.

Keywords:   Persian, Mongols, Punishment, Anti-Christian sentiment, Rashid al-Din, Aqsara'i, Hamdallah Mustawfi, Mirkhwand
