Summary/Abstract: This text presents an overview of historiographic interpretations about the death of king Stjepan Tomaš of Bosnia. The overview covers a period starting from the 15th century and the works of king’s contemporaries, over the Dubrovnik chronicles of the 16th and 17th century and the works of Bosnian Franciscans a century later, to the results presented by critical historiography. The main aim of this work is to draw attention to the need of forming a story about the king’s suspicious death to its reflection and use in different historical periods, observing the image of time in which various manuscripts were produced.
