Guiscard Bustari was a Florentine Italian adventurer and ambassador, who was employed by the Mongol Il Khan ruler Ghazan. In the summer 1300, Guiscard Bustari is recorded to have led an embassy of one hundred Mongols sent by Ghazan to Pope Boniface VIII. The Mongols, clad in traditional clothes, participated to the Jubilee organized by the Pope, and made a sensation. Ghazan asked Pope to send troops, priests, and peasants, in order to make the Holy Land a Frank state again.
