First English edition of the Nuremberg chronicle: being the Liber chronicarum of Dr. Hartmann Schedel…

Liege, the renowned and mighty city, was taken by Duke Charles of Burgundy in a great battle, involving much bloodshed, in the year A.D. 1468. For a long time discord and misunderstanding had existed between the Duke and those of Liege. Then the bishop of Liege undertook to arbitrate and allay this discord he was driven out of the city by the burghers. Thereupon the pope sent the Bishop of Tricariensis there as a legate; but he was imprisoned. Whereupon the duke became so angry that he stormed and devastated the city in the presence of King Louis of France.

Mathias, the illustrious king of Hungary, at this time attacked the kingdom of Bosnia, and through surrender he acquired the castle of Jaytza that was naturally well fortified by reason of its location, and was well protected with high embattlements. Before this castle he put to flight the Turkish sultan Mohammed, who, in a disgraceful retreat, left behind all his munitions and implements of war. Sometime thereafter, in the winter, King Mathias besieged the Turkish fortress of Sabatz that was protected with wood and earth works, surrounded with towers and moats (as the following illustration shows), and manned with many people. It was surrounded with wooden hedges and sharp posts, and the walls were built of wood. While the king was industriously engaged about the fortress, the Turks captured Count John of Witibitz before the king's camp; and taking him into the fortress of Sabatz, beheaded him, and hung his head, with his long yellow hair, on a pole over the castle, to terrify the besiegers. Thereupon the king, in anger, directed his forces against the castle, capturing it with great honor to himself. In the passing year, 1492, the Turks again attacked the fortress, but they were driven back by the Hungarians, and marched home.
