When Prince Michel the Brave besieged the city of Targoviste, the capital of Wallachia, temporarily occupied by Turks, "a large comet appeared" above the military camp and rested for two hours (according to an Italian report of the facts, redacted in Prague). After three days the Turks were defeated. No such comet is mentioned in astronomical records.
