THE SECOND PART OF
The bloody Conquests
of mighty Tamburlaine.
With his impassionate fury, for the death of
The generall welcomes Tamburlain receiu'd,
When he arriued last vpon our stage,
Hath made our Poet pen his second part,
Wher death cuts off the progres of his pomp,
Heading. With his .. maner of his own death om. 1606 logue 2318 our] the 1606
And murdrous Fates throwes al his triumphs down.
And with how manie cities sacrifice
He celebrated her sad funerall,
Himselfe in presence shal vnfold at large.

Orcanes, king of Natolia, Gazellus, vice-roy of Byron,
Egregious Viceroyes of these Eastern parts
Or crosse the streame, and meet him in the field?
We all are glutted with the Christians blood,
And haue a greater foe to fight against,
Neere Guyrons head doth set his conquering feet,
And means to fire Turky as he goes:
Gainst him my Lord must you addresse your power.
Vribas. Besides, king Sigismond hath brought from Christendome,
More then his Camp of stout Hungarians,
Sclauonians, Almans, Rutters, Muffes, and Danes,
That with the Holbard, Lance, and murthering Axe,

Inhabited with tall and sturdy men,
Gyants as big as hugie Polypheme:
Millions of Souldiers cut the Artick line,
Bringing the strength of Europe to these Armes,
Our Turky blades shal glide through al their throats,
And make this champion mead a bloody Fen.
The wandring Sailers of proud Italy,
Shall meet those Christians fleeting with the tyde,
Beating in heaps against their Argoses,
And make faire Europe mounted on her bull,
Byr. Yet stout Orcanes, Prorex of the world,
With Sigismond the king of Hungary:
And saue our forces for the hot assaults
Proud Tamburlaine intends Natolia.
Orc. Viceroy of Byron, wisely hast thou said:
My realme, the Center of our Empery
Once lost, All Turkie would be ouerthrowne :
And for that cause the Christians shall haue peace.
Slauonians, Almains, Rutters, Muffes, and Danes
Feare not Orcanes, but great Tamburlaine,
Nor he but Fortune that hath made him great.
We haue reuolted Grecians, Albanees,
Cicilians, lewes, Arabians, Turks, and Moors,
Natolians, Sorians, blacke Egyptians,
Illirians, Thracians, and Bythinians,
Enough to swallow forcelesse Sigismond

And we from Europe to the same intent which is really l. 2443 and is there missing in ed. 1606
Yet scarse enough t'encounter Tamburlaine.
Of India, wher raging Lantchidol
Beates on the regions with his boysterous blowes,
That neuer sea-man yet discouered :
All Asia is in Armes with Tamburlaine,
Euen from the midst of fiery Cancers Tropick,
To Amazonia vnder Capricorne.
And thence as far as Archipellago,
All Afrike is in Armes with Tamburlaine.
Therefore Viceroies the Christians must haue peace.
