La Bibliotheque du Land de Saxe at Dresde has a unique manuscript of Histoire des padichahs de France that was translated from French sources into Turkish in 1572 on the order of the Ottoman administrator and historian Feridun Beg. The work starts with introductory articles on Feridun Beg, Le Jardin de Lys, author of the translation, chronique itself and covers the reigns of 61 French kings from Faramond to Charles IX. Each king is presented first biographically; the transliteration of the Turkish text and its translation into French follow and sources are given. After all the French kings, the sources used for the original text are given.
