Chapter Twelve, “Source of the Ottoman Cluster” examines the probable origin of the cluster both in terms of the images used, and the reason for their use. In this last of the three chapters on the Ottoman Cluster a key Aqqoyunlu KMMS map manuscript is identified as the mother manuscript that spawned the cluster. It considers the provenance of TKS A2830 and how it found its way to Meḥmet II along with its subsequent impact. This chapter concludes by making a connection between patronage and propaganda and shows how a set of KMMS map manuscripts can be used to provide insights into map audience, patronage, and politics in fifteenth-century Anatolia.
