Kalabaliken I Bender.
Kalabaliken I Bender.
Lith. af Joh. Cardon. effer H. Morners icke stufade malning.
[n.d. c.1800]
Rare lithograph, sheet 355 x 495mm (14 x 18½"), very large margins. Repaired tears in margins.
A Swedish print of the Skirmish at Bender (1 February 1713), with Charles XII of Sweden (1682 1718) in the middle of the action. After the defeat of the Swedish at the Battle of Poltava in 1709, Charles was far away from Sweden and he needed somewhere to go. The Ottoman Empire had disliked Russia since time immemorial so Charles XII received the hospitality of Sultan Ahmed III and fled to the town of Bender in the modern country of Moldova. Charles XII of Sweden overstayed his welcome by a few years; so the Ottoman forces, forced him out and after some fighting Charles XII and his fighters were captured. After some time as a prisoner, Charles XII and his soldiers were released when news about the Swedish victory in the Battle of Gadebusch reached the Ottomans.
