At 16 stories Stryjkowski used, except the Polish chronicles, only Lit1L.

Whether Stryjkowski used "Annals of King Sigismund?" Maybe it used, at least the list of prisoners in the battle of Orsha (2, 384) looked somewhat rearranged and spoiled the list that we saw in the AKS-1 (Lit7L) and AKS-2 (Lit5L, Lit6L).

The story of Barbara Radziwill (2, 401 – 403) looks reductions AKS-2, in particular, mention of libel on king (AKS-2, Episode 113 is available only in Lit5L). But AKS-2 in the form in which it has reached us, is a very late product, and could not be the source for Stryjkowski. This matter requires further study.
