The present paper is an attempt to reconstruct the history of the Peloponnesian peninsula during the course of the First Venetian-Ottoman war (1463-1479) and especially during its first decade, when the most important military events took place. It is based on the most important narrative sources, both Greek and Latin. The main Greek narrative sources are the texts of Kritoboulos of Imbros, George Sphrantzes, Laonikos Chalkokondyles and Theodorus Spandunes. From the Latin point of view we have the testimony of two major important chroniclers: Domenico Malipiero's Annali Veneti and the text of Giacomo Bosio, the historiographer of the Hospitaller Knights. We are also provided with informations by the Venetian chronicle named "Cronica Zena".
