Abstract

Paper -a:
The issue regards French communiques written by diplomat Juie, who visited Constantinople in the 16th century. Scientific value of the source is determined by the fact that they belong to the person, who got notifications from a direct informer; besides, there are very scant contemporaneous sources depicting a domestic as well as a foreign political situation of Georgia of the 16th century. The correspondence reveal Ottomans’ preparation for a military expedition. The author of the letters was well acquainted with the political peripeties of the Ottoman-Iranian War (1578). It had a great importance for the history of Georgia, because the Georgians actively participated in the war against Ottomans on the basis of the ‘political Iranophilia’.
