Summary/Abstract: This paper analyzes up-to-date knowledge of the circumstances and chronology of Belgrade’s delivery to King Sigismund following the death of Despot Stefan Lazarević in 1427. According to previously unnoticed diplomatic sources, it is determined that Belgrade was handed over to the Hungarian king at the end of September or beginning of October, one month earlier than it was previously believed. Corrections in the chronology of handing over of Belgrade were analyzed in the light of those difficult circumstances caused by the Ottoman invasion of Serbia, which started in February of thе same year. In that situation, expecting the Hungarian military aid, the new Serbian ruler Đurađ Branković was unable to delay the delivery of the capital. In doing so, he fulfilled the duty that Despot Stefan took upon himself when he made the agreement with King Sigismund in Tata in 1426. While waiting to take Belgrade over from Đurađ Branković, King Sigismund camped in Borča (Barcha) during the second half of September 1427. This is the oldest known information, so far, about this settlement on the left side of the Danube, now part of Belgrade.
