My modest contribution to this beautiful source commentary carried out by Pr. Iskra Schwarcz (University of Vienna) and Pr. Vladimir Shishkin (St Petersburg State University),
“В ПОИСКАХ СОЮЗНИКОВ: ПОСЛАНИЕ ГЕНРИХА II ВАЛУА ИВАНУ IV ВАСИЛЬЕВИЧУ / SEARCHING FOR ALLIES: A LETTER FROM HENRY II DE VALOIS TO IVAN IV”
Which highlights political and diplomatic relations between Russia and France, with a special emphasis on the events of 1555, when France attempted to create a European alliance to fight the emperor of the Holy Roman Empire.
