It was then that he became a really dedicated patriot; from this time on, his poems and songs were all about fighting the Turks. After his release, he got married in Košice and from there he travelled to the scene of battles and recorded what he experienced in his poems. He also composed music to his poems, which he then accompanied on lute. His most famous work is the song “On the Siege of Eger”, for which he also collected data on the scene. When Dobó István became voivod of Transylvania, Tinódi went with him to Transylvania, where he wrote his song “The History of Transylvania”. The collected edition of his works appeared in 1554, in Cluj. On several occasions, his works have been used by historians as authoritative sources as, in many cases, he was an eyewitness to the events.
