Original Engraving, Circa 1670, Engraved By Lerch. Apparently A Leaf From A Collection Of Portraits, This One With Number 138 In Plate At Upper Right.

The Zaporozhian Cossacks Lived On The Pontic-Caspian Steppe Below The Dnieper Rapids (Ukrainian: Za Porohamy), Also Known As The Wild Fields. They Became A Well-Known Group Whose Numbers Increased Greatly Between The 15Th And 17Th Centuries. Cossacks Were Usually Organized By Ruthenian Boyars Or Princes Of The Nobility, Especially Various Lithuanian Starostas. Merchants, Peasants And Runaways From The Poland-Lithuania Commonwealth, Moscow State And Modern Moldova And Romania Also Joined The Cossacks. The First Recorded Zaporizhian Host Prototype Was Formed When A Cousin Of Ivan The Terrible, Dmytro Vyshnevetsky, Built A Fortress On The Island Of Little Khortytsia On The Banks Of The Lower Dnieper In 1552. The Zaporozhian Host Adopted A Lifestyle That Combined The Ancient Cossack Order And Habits With Those Of The Knights Hospitaller. The Zaporozhian Cossacks Played An Important Role In European Geopolitics, Participating In A Series Of Conflicts And Alliances With The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Russia, And The Ottoman Empire. As A Result Of The Khmelnytsky Uprising In The Middle Of The 17Th Century, The Zaporozhian Cossacks Briefly Established An Independent State, Which Later Became The Autonomous Cossack Hetmanate (1649-1764). It Was A Suzerainty Under Protection Of The Russian Tsar From 1667 But Ruled By The Local Hetmans For A Century.
