Abstract: In December 1564 Süleyman was informing Dragut (Turgut Reis) that Piyale Paşa, the beylerbeyi [1] of the Archipelago (Greek Aegean Islands), was being appointed commander of the Imperial Navy and being asked to join in the Siege of Malta. On the 5 Cemaziyelâhir 972 (8th January 1565) Süleyman ordered the Governor of Karlı Ili (Greek, Aetolia-Acarnania) to assemble the cavalry and riflemen of his district and to meet up with the “victorious fleet” of Vezir Mustafa Paşa in Modon (Greek, Methony), after it left Istanbul in spring.
