In this episode of The History of the Ottoman Empire we are covering the Civil War between the sons of Mehmed II. We have Jem on one side and Bayezid II on the other. Although the Conqueror pushed the Ottomans from an up and coming state in Anatolia to an Eastern Empire that the west could no longer ignore, he accomplished this by ruling with an iron fist, and exhausting his forces and resources. The Ottoman elite and military were eager for a change of pace and thus put support behind Bayezid II, who was not the choice of Mehmed and his Grand Vezir, which leads as you might guess to bloodshed all around. You thought Captain America Civil War was action packed, this will have your head spinning!
