The Battle of the King of Poland with the Muscovite is one of the first descriptions of the Battle of Orsha. It was a short information publication for German readers, which came out soon after the battle. The battle took place on 8 September 1514, during the war between the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and the Grand Duchy of Moscow (1512–1522). The united army of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, led by the Grad Hetman Konstanty Ostrogski, fought with the army of Moscow. This was one of the most important military victories for the Grand Duchy of Lithuania against Moscow, and one of the biggest battles in the history of 16th century Europe.
