      I didn't find a detailed map. From the Historical Atlas of Central Europe:
      "The Ottoman sphere in Central Europe was basically divided into two categories (1) core provinces ruled directly by the Ottoman central administration in the capital of Istanbul; and (2) vassal or tributary states that had varying degrees of self-rule and in some cases virtual independence....
      The second category, vassal or tributary states, included ... Transylvania ... .
      The height of Transylvanian power was reached during the first half of the seventeenth century... . ..., they followed an independents foreign policy which allowed them to negotiate in 1645 the acquisition from the Habsburgs of seven counties in eastern Slovakia and Carpathian Rus."
      Those seven counties were not directly under Ottoman rule.

      Subject: [S-R] Extent of Ottoman Empire in Upper Hungary (Slovakia)

      Are there any maps that show the extent the Ottoman Empire extended in
      current day eastern Slovakia in the 1600's?

      I am specifically interested in seeing a map(s) at village level.

      My relatives came from Raslavice (Saros), Mala Vieska (Saros)and
      Komarany (Zemplin).

      Thanks in advance.
