Msg event.pngThe Economic Reforms of Mehmed II

Prior to his conquest of Constantinople Mehmed II signed several generous agreements with the mercantile empires of Venice and Genoa to ensure their neutrality, but when the great city had fallen he was not late in breaking the western merchants' strangle-hold on the Black Sea trade. Mehmed was a mercantilist who strived to maintain state control over the merchants, yet his protectionist measures had the intended effect and the Ottoman economy thrived.

Msg event.pngLand Reforms of Mehmed II

Mehmed II was a centralizing monarch, who sought to expand his personal power within the Ottoman Empire at all costs. Near the end of his reign he sought to reduce the power of the ulema by rerouting revenues from the foundations (waqf) which supported them to the timar system instead, further strengthening the Ottoman army. This move, illegal under Islamic Law, caused widespread resentment and was quickly reversed by his son Bayezid upon Mehmed's death in 1481.

He started his career as a cook, then moved to the Treasury. A pasha in central Anatolia, he gained a name for himself as an excellent and honest administrator - a rare creature in the Ottoman Empire. On 15th September 1656 he was appointed Grand Vizier by the mother of the young sultan Mehmed IV. A fierce fighter of corruption, he enacted many successful reforms, balanced the budget and led the war against Venice. After his death in 1661, his son Fazil Ahmed 'the Virtuous' succeeded him and governed till 1676. Other Grand Viziers such as Kara Mustafa (1676-1683), Mustafa Pasha (1689-1691) and Hussein Pasha (1697-1702) were his direct heirs.

Msg event.pngMuslim-Born Men Enroll as Janissaries

While the intention had originally been for the Janissaries to be raised only through the devshirme, the social status associated with being a Janissary together with a guaranteed state salary is very attractive for many of our subjects. As the Corps grows in size, we find ourselves unable to fill its ranks solely with devshirme recruits, and have consequently begun to allow Muslim-born men to buy their way into the Corps. As these outsiders have not spent their lives in our service, they are more difficult to train and discipline.

Msg event.pngThe Lapse of the Devshirme

By the middle of the 17th century, the Devshirme had run its course in Ottoman history. The ümera class, in addition to being overpopulated relative to state offices available, now got its manpower from new sources, particularly Abkhazian, Circassian, and Georgian slaves. The Janissaries, too, had long since begun to recruit from the empire's Muslim population, rendering the Devshirme obsolete. Although occasional levies would still take place into the early years of the 18th century, by the 1650s the practice had for all intents and purposes come to an end.

Msg event.pngThe Veneto-Turkish Conflict

Since the capture of Constantinople by the Turks on May 29th, 1453, Venice had seen its commercial positions in the Black Sea deteriorate. Numerous wars had been fought between 1456 and 1490, pitching the Republic against the Ottomans, with the consequence of Venice losing more pieces of her commercial empire (inherited from the 4th Crusade in 1204) in the Aegean Sea and in Greece (Athens in 1460, Negropont in 1470). A war erupted again in 1499, Venice losing fortresses in Morea such as Modon, Coron and Navarrin.

Msg event.png[Root.GetName] and the Royal Princes

As is customary some of our provinces are governed by imperial princes so that they may learn what it is to be rulers one day. It is also understood that these provinces can serve as their base of power when the time comes to see to the succession. That struggle itself often gives ample opportunity to sort out the bad eggs.

Sometimes, however, the process can be even more hasty. It seems one of our Prince-Governors has managed to actively destroy the resources under his control. If nothing is done soon revenue will be permanently reduced. Unfortunately, however, the Royal Prince, while not our favorite does have support from some influential groups in [Root.Owner.Capital.GetCapitalName], if we are to withdraw his assignment there will be some backlash.

Msg event.pngNurbanu Sultan

During the reign of Sultan Selim II, Nurbanu Sultan was his favorite consort and wife. Born in Venice and named Rachel Olivia de Nasi, she was abducted and taken to Prince Selim's royal harem where she was renamed Afife Nurbanu Sultan. Her beauty and intelligence, and the fact that she was the mother of the heir-apparent, made her husband ask her for advice as he respected her good judgement in various subjects. When her husband died, her son Murad was away, serving as Governor. Nurbanu realized that his abscence had created the prefect opportunity for someone else to seize the throne, with the Sultan dead and his son away from the capital. Fortunately for her and her son, Selim II had died in the harem and as security and privacy was strict, no one knew of his death. She kept it a secret, hid the body in an icebox and sent words to her son to return to the capital. Murad arrived twelve days later and with the death of Selim made public, their son became Sultan and Nurbanu became Queen Mother or Valide Sultan. Nurbanu is now a formidable figure with great power and far-reaching influence. Her management of the government is very effective and her diplomatic skills impressive.
