Ottoman Achievements

The Ottoman Empire was one of the most successful and prosperous empires in history.  They were an organised and powerful force. The man who brought them into such great power was Mehmet I who helped expand The Ottomans from small city in Turkey into a mighty State.  The Empire had conquered many great nations of the middle Eastern world as well as parts of Southern Europe and Egypt. It lasted for over 700 years under the rule of a single dynasty. The empire was culture was based around the muslim religion. They had conquered many nations of varying religions such as christians, and Egyptian religions. They would in some cases raise children from other cultures into their own religion. After defeating the Byzantine Empire they became the major power in Easter Mediterranean area. they conquered the great city is Constantinople and renamed the city as Istanbul. Istanbul then became the capital of their Empire. Their military was made up of converted christians and slaves well-trained for combat. The Ottomans achieved much in the expansion and development of their empire.

    Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to understand so much about this, such as you wrote the guide in it or something. I feel that you just can do with some p.c. to force the message house a little bit, but instead of that, that is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back.
