Several versions of the Zafarnama exist, however out of the versions written in the fifteenth century, only three illustrated copies survive, the Zafarnama of Ibrahim Sultan, the Zafarnama of Sultan Husayn, and the Turk ve Islam Eserleri Mflzesi Zafarnama. This article examines more closely the Zafarnama written for Sultan Husayn, also known as the Garrett Zafarnama. The variety of versions of the Zafarnama can be attributed to the wide variety of patrons who commissioned the production of this manuscript. Each patron had different personal tastes and goals for their version of the Zafarnama, which influenced the choices of illustrations and design executed by the artists of their choosing (see Function of the Paintings).
