Was the Emperor Bajazeth in the play Tamburlaine the Great by Christopher Marlowe a real historical figure?

Asked by twothecat (391points) April 22nd, 2011

I’m having trouble finding evidence of his existence. All the searches I run bring up only the play. Is this because he’s only a literary character? Does anyone know how much of Tamburlaine is based on events that actually occurred?
