A series of plays and operas have been written to mark this historical event. In George Frideric Handelís opera, although Tamerlano is already engaged to the Princess von Trapezunt, he falls in love with Bajazetís daughter. She, however, is fond of the Greek Prince Andronico. The story, which takes place in Prusa, the capital of Bithynia, begins directly after Bajazet and Asteria have been captured.
