Summary/Abstract: The Ottoman Empire constantly revealed its reluctance towards including Walachia and Moldavia at the same time as lands under joint Ottoman-Hungarian suzerainty in the treaties concluded with the kingdom. It was only after 1503 that this inclusion truly became a diplomatic custom, but still with much resistance from the Ottoman side. In this respect, though it does not stand for a diplomatic watershed, the source from 1492 brought here into discussion allows us to place such questions into different perspectives. At the same time, maybe in the first place, the source directs our attention south of the Danube lines
