This article analyses the activities of Ferhad-beg Sokolović, who served first as the sanjak-beg of Klis and then of Bosnia, in delineating the new boundary line between Venice and the Ottoman Empire following the signing of the separate peace treaty in March of 1573 at the end of the Cyprus war. The article draws not only on scholarly literature, but also on original Ottoman and Venetian documents.
