Description
Apology of Skanderbeg, vindicated against Ivan Tomko Mrnavić, Latin bishop of Bosnia († 1637). Mrnavić (author of an treatise De Illyrico cæsaribusque Illyricis, of a biography of Petar Berislavić, bishop of Vezsprem and ban of Croatia, of a drama based on the death of Sultan Osman II etc.) claimed that the anti-Ottoman hero was in fact a Bosnian Slav belonging to the Mrnavić family. Blancus protested at lenght, showing that the mighty and invincible Skanderbeg was Albanian.
