Description

Suleiman the Magnificent is the story of the Ottoman Turks’ greatest leader. He came to power at the early age of 25 in 1520. Before his death in 1566, he had altered the power structure and geography of Eastern Europe, and Turkey had become the dominant naval power in the Mediterranean. Suleiman’s reign would mark the high tide of Turkish power in Asia Minor and Europe. His widespread conquests began with the taking of Belgrade and the surrender of Rhodes then surged on to Budapest, Tabriz, Baghdad, Aden, and Algiers, making the Turks’ power feared and respected as far west as Paris and London.

This is a stirring drama of conquest and naked power. It is also the personal story of the sultan and his household and the less spectacular – but in some ways more deadly – play and counterplay of ambition and jealousy in the palace…particularly in the harem. It is a time of great adventure and great romance.
