Rise of The Ottoman Empire

Rise Of The Ottoman Empire

The Foundation and Rise of the Ottoman Empire (1299 – 29 May 1453) refers to the period which started with the weakening of the Seljuq Sultanate of Rûm in the very early 14th century and ended with the Byzantine Empire decline and the Fall of Constantinople on May 29, 1453.

The rise of the Ottomans correlates with the decline of the Roman Empire, which generated the shift in power from a singular Christian European society to an Islamic influence. The beginning of this period was characterized by the Byzantine-Ottoman wars which lasted for a century and a half. During this period, the Ottoman Empire gained control of both Anatolia and the Balkans.

Immediately after the establishment of the Anatolian beyliks, some Turkic principalities united with the Ottomans against the Byzantine Empire. The rise period witnessed Sultanate of Rûm's defeat against the Mongols in the 14th century and was followed by the Growth of the Ottoman Empire (29 May 1453 – 11/12 September 1683) — a period referred as Pax Ottomana, the economic and social stability attained in the conquered provinces of the Ottoman Empire, by some historians.
