In the modern West, the Ottoman Empire is associated with just a few significant events, such as the fall of Constantinople in 1453, but the dynasty of the sultans exercised its wide influence for longer than the British, French or Mughal Empires. This account of Ottoman history sets out the full 600-year process of growth and decline, focusing on the lives and achievements of the sultans themselves and giving the background to the power struggles in today’s Islamic world.
