Excerpt from The History of the Knights Hospitallers of St. John of Jerusalem, Vol. 2 of 3: Styled Afterwards the Knights of Rhodes, and at Present the Knights of Malta

Bajazet, freed from a competitor, applied himself to secure the dominions left him by his father, and enlarge them by new conquests. He was a prince warm, bold, and enterprising; always on horse back, and in the field, thirsting after the blood of his enemies, and prodigal of that of his own soldiers. He learned the art of making one's self feared, as the surest rule in politics.' He first fell upon Bul-i garia, and the sovereign of the country falling by the fate of war into his hands, he caused him to be immediately strangled. He next ravaged Bosnia and Croatia, carrying ofi' more captives than he left inhabitants. Macedonia was not exempted from the fury of his incursions; and he fell from thence upon the Morea, reduced part of it, and, on the side of Constantinople, forced his way to the very walls of the city. He would willingly have besieged it in form, but not having a number of forces suffi cient for so great an enterprise, he only blocked up that capital of the Greek empire, with several de tachments of troops, which he posted in difi'erent quarters about it.
