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.

Süleyman I was probably the greatest of the Ottoman Sultans. Called Kanuni (Lawgiver), he was an unsurpassed administrator who realized that the power of the provincial Beys had to be curbed by a strong central government. Thus he struggled to promote a powerful royal bureaucracy which was not popular in all camps...

Msg event.pngThe Great Naval Reform


Selim I, called the Grim, was an ascetic man with a sharp mind. Seeing the threat of the great Christian navies, especially the Venetian one, he realized that the Ottoman Empire had to greatly expand its navy. In emulation of the Arsenale in Venice, he thus ordered the construction of the 'Imperial Halic Shipyard' in Constantinople. The great shipyard stood complete in 1517.

Msg event.pngThe Age of the Köprülüs


Born around 1575 in the village of Radnick in Albania, Mehmed Köprülü was a young Christian boy taken by the devshirme system (abducted and raised in the Muslim faith, just like most Janissary troops). 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.pngThe Decentralizing Effect of the Provincial System


The provincial governors, or 'Beys', were powerful men, usually ambitious, and not always loyal. Although the Ottoman Empire did not have a noble class or a feudal system like most European nations, the Beys were a close equivalent with many of the same intrinsic problems. The Beys were reluctant to give up their powers and usually demanded even more concessions... even to the point of outright independence.

The Beys are now demanding more power.

The janissaries became rivals to the landed Timariot sipahi soldiers that made up the bulk of the Ottoman army, and tensions were inevitable between the two classes.

So long as the Janissaries remain influential, we will have to provide a degree of tolerance even for the most heterodox of religious practitioners.

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.

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.

Murad III, a Sultan ruled by women, fought the Persians in an exhausting war (1578-90) that severely strained the Empire and forced heavy taxes upon the citizens. Though the war was not for nothing - Persia had to cede Azerbaijan, Tiflis and Hamadan to the Ottomans - the resources might have been better spent elsewhere.

Msg event.pngRites of Passage


Like the Sultans of old [Root.Heir.GetName] hopes to make a name for [Root.Heir.GetHerselfHimself] as a conqueror and a [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] who will lead the Empire from the horseback. As [Root.Monarch.GetName] is still in good health, and as we have not allowed our heir to actually take to the field, the realization of this dream remain an uncertainty. It has come to the point that [Root.Heir.GetName] is being ridiculed by the other Sehzade and [Root.Heir.GetHerHis] mother is imploring [Root.Monarch.GetName] to give [Root.Heir.GetHerHim] a command of [Root.Heir.GetHerHis] own.

This is not an unreasonable request, though one must wonder about the motives of those that try to goad our favorite to risk [Root.Heir.GetHerHis] life and limb.

Word has reached us that the beloved and most favored of sons, [Root.Heir.GetName], is plotting against [Root.Heir.GetHerHis] father and aims to overthrow the state.

There can be no doubt that the Haseki Sultan speaks out of her own interest in this matter, [Root.Heir.GetName] is no son of hers but his replacement is very likely to be. Our own ministers also speak of [Root.Heir.GetName]'s betrayal, however, and he could pose a very real threat.

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.
