During them years schools with the Albanian language were banned, practising christianity meant death penalty. So you can sympathise and understand, I guess. Now Albania is one of the most religion tolerant country in the world . You are free to practise and believe where you want without the slightest undermining or mocking by anyone, there are churches, mosques everywhere and not everyone are muslims. So just think for a moment and appreciate their sacrifices and battles they made, keeping all that river of power (ottoman empire) occupied and not reaching Europe. If you have read history, some of Albanians fled to southern Italy and were aknowledged aa heros, they still live there and talk Albanian (Arberesh). Austria and other European countries acknowledged Skanderbeg and Albanians for their accomplishments during that time. So don't just come to conclusions without taking in consideration other factors...

Just imagine, Skanderbeg won 24 battles against Ottomans (and their allies) while being 5 to 20 times less in number in soliders, he held them for around 30 years. Let me remind you just three of his best battles. "The First Siege of Kruja" Sultan Murad II & Prince Mehmed II had over 150.000 soliders, Skanderbeg had only 8.000 men, and ended with Albanian (Skanderbeg) victory. "Battle of Albulena" Isak Bey and Hamza Kastrioti (his nephew who betrayed him, and knew all his tactics) had over 80.000 soliders, Skanderbeg had 7.000 men, and it resulted with Albanian victory, casualties and losses: 30.000 killed Ottoman soliders. "Second Siege of Kruja" Sultan Mehmed II (who at that time had conqueror Constantinople) had over 100.000 men, Skanderbeg had only 12.000 men, and it ended with Albanian victory, casualties and losses were too heavy for Ottomans, and many many other extraordinary and very interesting battles of Skanderbeg. And still no Hollywood movie is about him? 😏

And no army no matter how great it is, can't fight in two different fronts. EDIT: Stop giving me names of battles or wars that lasted a few years. That's not the same, you completely missed the point, ottomans had countless battles, countless wars and countless enemies.

In order to conquer Central Italy, the Ottoman navies would have to pass across the windy Adriatic Sea, if they were to conquer Southern Italy, they would have to pass either the Tunisian or Ionian Seas, whereas if the Ottoman Imperial armies were to try to enter Northern Italy from Austria, they would have to pass through the snowy alps. Their best bet would probably be to go through the border from Slovenia or Croatia, which would probably end up in disaster anyway as that region was protected by a combination of European powers (Austria-Hungary, Holy Roman Empire, Venice, France and Spain), who would probably put aside their differences to team up against the Ottomans.

I think the mighty spanish empire was a factor, enriched with the gold and wealth of the new world. It had armies stationed in Italy and even had some balkan campaigns to help stem the Ottoman expansion. They were also closely allied to Austria due to their common Hapsburg lineage in their monarchies.

@Military Comparison Videos You're probably Turkish aren't you? But let me just say that firstly i never said the Ottomans weren't also mighty. They were both the strongest empires of the time and it led to some grisly fights. Some won by the ottomans and their allies. Some won by the spanish and their allies. Secondly, in europe, spanish armies dominated the battlefield. With the Spanish Tercios able to defeat all challengers until improvements of artillery led to the formation becoming more vulnerable. Spanish armies were active in Germany and the Netherlands, so no it wasn't just native american cultures they were fighting, but well armed well equipped European principalities, especially during the protestant reformation movement. Most historians think that if the Spanish had actually managed to land the armada invasion force bound for England in 1588, they would have won. But most of it died at sea due to storms and the naval command ability of Francis Drake. Thirdly, why did the Ottomans never effectively invade southern Italy? It would have been an ideal stepping stone towards Rome itself, the heart of Christendom at the time. They could have done it before the defeat at sea in battle of lepanto. The reason was that there was a sizable spanish garrison defending southern italy and sicily, otherwise the italian cities of the south would have been extremely vulnerable.

@@aydnmesuttorun8397 It remained a powerful empire though. I think the loss of the Armada invasion fleet for England hurt it's economy a lot and made it's treasure fleet more vulnerable to pirates and english privateers. But some ships would still get through, gold was less and less but silver remained steady provided they weren't intercepted. Spain though in decline still hold a global spanning empire. But it lost the netherlands, lost what money there was in the 30 years war, and had a change of dynasty marking the end of the hapsburg alliance with Austria. And it's holding in southern Italy eventually evolved into the independent Kingdom of Naples. Turkey remained strong for another hundred years, culminating in the second siege of Vienna, after that it too went into decline. The age of enlightenment came, and both the Ottomans and Spain were very old fashioned and struggled to modernize and keep up with the west, northern europe in particular.

One funny story about Skanderbeg (that, considering the times, might be true): At one point Murat (the father of Mehmet) sent an envoy to Skanderbeg basically accusing him of satanism and saying that the only reason he wins is because he had a magic sword given to him by Satan (btw, Ottomans soldiers truly called the road to Kruja, Skanderbeg's main castle, "the road of the devil"). The envoy went on saying that without his magic sword the Ottomans would have already won! But the Sultan in his graciousness was giving the opportunity to Skanderbeg to prove him wrong by exchanging their swords. So, if Skanderbeg is truly a good man and not allied with evil, the Sultan was willing to give him his own sword in exchange for his magic one! Skanderbeg smiled and accepted. (Giving his Albanian court anxiety because they too have believed the hype). Next year the Ottomans attacked again and Skanderbeg defeated them again. Then he sent to the Sultan a simple massage: "It was never the sword. It's the hand that helds it." That's the kind of man he was.

An Ottoman Emperor of that era would never exchange the sword of a so called evil with the sword of God cast as justice. I respect Skanderbeg and Polish,Lithuanian Hussars as once enemies as they fought with their heart to defend their realm. If anyone would want to link someone to devil, there was no man on the earth of that era as vicious as Vlad the Impaler. The things that he has done to his own people let alone his enemies are beyond definition of hell.

Amphibious invasions against a centralized state that doesn't want you to land were incredibly difficult. People today don't realize how incredible the successful landings at Normandy and on Pacific islands like Guam and Okinawa were. And this was in the 1940's, well over 300 years after the Ottomans were at their peak. The Ottomans had the Bosporus and Marmara as an easy way to gradually get into the Balkans. Crossing the Adriatic all at once would have been a logistical nightmare in the 16th/17th century.
The Pope had Spanish Soldiers placed all over the south regions of Italy all south of Vatican City to fight and stop the Muslims. It worked. Then the Muslims went to Eastern Europe to invade instead. But the could not win in Italy. Spain even defeated The French tryin to invade from the Milan area, and even captured a french king that in arrogance dared to set foot in Milan area. They brought that king to Spain Madrid as a prisoner. Shame for France too.

Nice video but it lacks some crutial informations; Mehmet (not pronounced as Mekmed but smt like Memet and back in those times as Mehemmet) had a vision to recreate the Roman Empire. He even had himself called as the Kayser (Caesar). For that he wanted both Constantiople and Rome. Before he died, he assembled the full army of his Might and started his march for Rome. Yet he was poisoned by his physician. Venetians spies later documented and reported this as "the Great Eagle is dead" which strongly suggests that it was an assassination. Mehmet had two sons; Cem and Bayezid. Cem was like his father, smart and capable but also kind of intravert just like Mehmet. Bayezid was more of a peoples person. People were tired of Mehmet's unending wars, constant change and renovation. Therefore the powerful people sided with Bayezid, making him the Emperor Bayezid the Second. Cem took refuge with the Venetians. Bayezid had no interest in wars, long lasting campaigns and expansion so he stayed mostly in Konstantiniye, spending time with his hobbys and stuff. He was dethroned by his son Selim. Selim was a military genious but since he had grown up in Trabzon in the east, his dreams were also towards the east, against Iran and the Memluks. Süleyman was more into destroying the rival Habsburgs in Austria. Just like his ancestor Mehmet II, he had a vision to become a Cosmocrat, the ruller of all… For that, the other greatpower of Europe had to fall. Then they have lost the chance for a successful invasion of Italy because they had so many other problems... Their previous victories in Hungary pushed them into unending conflicts. The Empire was to big to push further but also hard to defend. The inner intrigues carved the State structures from with in and the Instability that arisen was ever growing. The Conquer of Rome was no longer a possibility.

I think that it is more like Skanderbeg than Italian defense. Italy has been all the time the first country which get collapsed (for example WW1 or WW2). I hardly think that Italy would be an Ottoman province than unoccupied country. At all Skenderbeg defended directly Albania (that time as Arberia), but in indirectly way Italy too. He won 25 battles in row, but none of Christian world countries help him, but also Venice supported Ottomans to occupied any Arberia land for themselves. I am not blaming anyone, but Skanderbeg was also a main factor, who avoid Italy occupation by Ottomans.

So basically if it wasn't for Skanderbeg Italy would have been conquered 25 years earlier when Sultan Mehmet was at its peak, this is because Scanderbeg fought 2 sultans for 25 years..it makes sense..it also makes sense that Italy was the center of Europe at that time.

You completely missed the most important point. The Ottoman economy was based on the Silk Rout trade with China and India, and its economy was based also on silver. When the Spanish conquered the Western Hemisphere, aka, the West Indies, an abundance of gold and silver saturated the world and plummeted the value of Ottoman silver thus causing an economic depression for the Ottomans, and reversely a boom to the Holy Roman Empire with the Spanish Hapsburgs leading it.

Thanks for your video If you agree I can add something about Otranto and Salento peninsula. At that time the Salentines were a mixture of Greek, Croatian, Albanian, and Christianized Normans......... a sum of very hard and anchorage to traditions peoples. Even the Romans, 1300 years before, took two years to gain the Salento peninsula " Bellum Sallentinum" (268-266 Before Christ). Particularly, due to demography emigration under the Arabic pirates' incursions along the Puglia coast, centuries before the Otranto siege, the majority of the population went to inland cities. (1050-1100 After Christ). The Pope, due to the pirates' attacks along the southern coast of Italian Kingdoms, in agreement with local lords, repopulated this zone with Croatians and Normans who mixed with the ancient greek citizens and residues of Byzantine communities. Getting a point......the failure of the Ottoman landing operations is to impute to the local population that preferred to sacrifice their lives instead to became Muslim under a Caliphate as happened, centuries before, in Sicily. If you go to Lecce, Brindisi, and Taranto you can ask, even today, what the expression "Mamma li Turchi" means for them. Salentines never agreed to be submitted, integrated, or exchange commercial traffic with Ottomane, instead of what happened in Sicily and Andalucia. As happened in other parts of Salento, in Otranto the Christians refused to switch religions and after a wild siege, they were all decapitated.

I will go on a wild tangent here - what many here describe as "weakness" of Europe and "strength" of empires like the Ottomans was anything but.... I am talking about disunity and many competing kingdoms of Europe. This was one of the greatest strengths of Europe, not a weakness, and it led to Europe dominating entire world and not empires like the Ottomans or Persians or Chinese. These small kingdoms competed with each other and yet, were all interconnected. This allowed for competition leading to best weaponry, best technology and also to development of science and free-flow of ideas during the Renaissance and led to the age of Enlightenment. Scientists and political philosophers could travel freely among European kingdoms and if one was persecuting one or rejecting some innovation, the innovator could easily move to a rival kingdom and see his ideas flourish. This led to technological and scientific innovations, which allowed Europe to conquer the world. Contrastingly, big, centralized empires like the Ottomans, Russians, Chinese - they stifled ideas, persecuted independent thinkers, and gave them no escape. A Chinese Adam Smith or John Locke had nowhere to run, no where to spread their ideas if Chinese bureaucracy didn't like him. Same goes for the Ottomans and Russians. This is why Industrial Revolution and Enlightenment originated in Europe and somewhere else.

Mehmed the Conqueror was a huge fan of Italy. He was interested in art and literature of Italian. Some even say that he learnt Italian language. However, his successors were complete opposite. This may be one of the reasons why Ottomans didn’t interest in Italy. Another reason might be naval issues against mighty naval forces of Europe. Even though Ottomans not that bad in Mediterranean, it wasn’t that practical to move huge armies and their supplies across the sea. Maybe Ottomans were logistics masterminds but naval invading isn’t something that they’re good at. Never mind, who cares poor Europe when you can capture all the wealth in the East, right?

But they could not win in Italy. Spain even defeated The French tryin to invade from the north, the Milan area, and even captured a french king that in arrogance dared to set foot in Milan area. They brought that king to Spain Madrid as a prisoner. Shame for France too. The Spanish won in South and North Italy.

Indeed. You are right. Spain. Constantinople was captured by the Ottoman Empire on 29 May 1453. Otranto (in Italy) was captured in 1480 by an Ottoman army under Gedik Ahmed Pasha who main goal were using Otranto as a base camp to invade Italy (I repeat in 1480). This is the last quarter of the 1400s (XV centuries). Do you think was that enough to avoid the fall of the whole Italian peninsula during the 16th and 17th centuries, at the height of its power, under the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent? The presence of the Spanish Empire in the Eastern Mediterranean (due to the South of Italy was ruled by the Spanish kings) was concerned the Ottoman sultans like Suleiman, who saw it as an early indication of Spanish's intention to rival Ottoman dominance in the region. You can check several defeats of the Ottoman Empire due to the Spanish Empire during the 1500s:The Siege of Castelnuovo in 1538,the Great Siege of Malta occurred in 1565 or the Battle of Lepanto in 1571. Regarding the Siege of Castelnuovo despite the failure of Spanish forces to retain the fortress, Castelnuovo's defense was sung by numerous contemporaneous poets and praised all over Christian Europe. The Spanish soldiers who participated in the unequal engagement were compared with mythological and classical history heroes like Leonidas in The Battle of Thermopylae, being considered immortal due to the magnitude of their Spanish feat. Regarding the Great Siege of Malta, the Ottomans invaded Malta in 1565, undertaking the Great Siege of Malta, which began on 18 May and lasted until 8 September. At first it seemed that this would be a repeat of the battle on Rhodes, with most of Malta's cities destroyed and half the Knights killed in battle; but a relief force from Spain entered the battle, resulting in the loss of 10,000 Ottoman troops. This victory became one of the most celebrated events of sixteenth-century Europe, to the point that Voltaire said: "Nothing is better known than the siege of Malta." It undoubtedly contributed to the eventual erosion of the European perception of Ottoman invincibility, although the Mediterranean continued to be contested between Christian coalitions and the Turks for many years. Regarding the Battle of Lepanto, in the history of naval warfare, Lepanto marks the last major engagement in the Western world to be fought almost entirely between rowing vessels, namely the galleys and galeasses. The battle was in essence an "infantry battle on floating platforms". It was the largest naval battle in Western history since classical antiquity, involving more than 400 warships. The victory of the Spanish Empire was of great importance in the history of Europe and of the Ottoman Empire, marking the turning-point of Ottoman military expansion into the Mediterranean, although the Ottoman wars in Europe would continue for another century but by land wars. It has long been compared to the Battle of Salamis, both for tactical parallels and for its crucial importance in the defense of Europe against imperial expansion. It was also of great symbolic importance in a period when Europe was torn by its own wars of religion following the Protestant Reformation. Pope Pius V instituted the feast of Our Lady of Victory and Philip II of Spain used the victory to strengthen his position as the "Most Catholic King" and defender of Christendom against Muslim incursion. Regarding the Battle of Lepanto, the historian Paul K. Davis writes that: "More than a military victory, Lepanto was a moral one. For decades, the Ottoman Turks had terrified Europe, and the victories of Suleiman the Magnificent caused Christian Europe serious concern. The defeat at Lepanto further exemplified the rapid deterioration of Ottoman might under Selim II, and Christians rejoiced at this setback for the Ottomans. The mystique of Ottoman power was tarnished significantly by this battle, and Christian Europe was heartened." The engagement was a significant defeat for the Ottomans, who had not lost a major naval battle since the fifteenth century. The Ottoman defeat has often been cited as the historical turning-point initiating the eventual stagnation of Ottoman territorial expansion. The Spanish Christian victory at Lepanto confirmed the de facto division of the Mediterranean, with the eastern half under firm Ottoman control and the western under the Spanish Empire, halting the Ottoman encroachment on Italian territories. The historian Paul K. Davis synopsizes the importance of Lepanto this way: "This Turkish defeat stopped Ottomans' expansion into the Mediterranean, thus maintaining western dominance, and confidence grew in the west that Turks, previously unstoppable, could be beaten".

Really many. And as you sad the Italian states tend to unite if threatened, (the French and the Spanish in the Italian war had success because the Italian states was divided among them, some allied with the invaders like Milan who called the French in 1492 i guess, but when they united was dangerous). Skandenberg and the Albanians too was another factor. BTW the ottomans penegrated sometime in Italy, like in otranto, or in Friuli, but they was ever kicked back. It wasn't so easy like I sad yet to invade Italy, or Austria to them.

I am an appreciator of the history of the Anatolian peoples, of which mainly, I admit, the Turkic peoples, and in this sense, I study with pleasure the Turkish universe of the long period of the Ottoman hegemony over the Balkans and the Middle East, from the early days of the emirate to the heyday of the sultanate, to the decline and ultimately, to the collapse of the concept of empire itself. Like many empires preceding the conception of the nation-state, the Ottoman Empire did not operate from a nationalist angle at all. Multicultiralism and multi-confessionalism have been essential foundations of Turkish power as well as one of its riches. When Mehmed II conquered Constantinople, he saw himself as a universal leader. He was the khan, the sultan, the emperor and even, the king of kings as the Persians understood him. Protector of minorities living under his reign and master of all. The era of reforms or `` tanzimats '' threatened the Sublime Porte and its States, its domination more dangerously than the Treaty of Karlowitz and Constantinople, than the destruction in connection with the Holy League and the damage caused by localized rebellions. In any case, I digress. I am sorry for that. Thank you for coming and enriching us with your explanations. Personally, I was cheerful that a clarification arose on the Italian question, because it is fair to say that Italy was indeed in the priority plans of the masters of Constantinople. If Mehmed II had lived longer, many things would have been different, since he imagined and planned his projects without telling anyone, and only announced his intentions once his business was in place. However, when he died, it is presumed that he was eyeing Egypt and perhaps the Italian peninsula. In addition, as you have well underlined, several obstacles arose in front of the Ottoman ambitions, including natural elements and out of the control of the Sultan or despots who watched the marches of Christianity.

Well the Kingdom of Sicily was actually pretty strong during the Hautevilles and Hauhenstaufens... That's why. They controlled large parts of Africa as well. It was only after the Angevins and Aragonese destroyed it that the Ottomans broke through to the Barbary coast
Broke where in Italy ?

But Ottomans didn't exist as a strong Anatholic State in thirteenth century. And the Kingdom of Sicily lost almost of its African possessions at the end of the twelfth century.

Scanderbeg and Albanians stopped Ottomans and sultan mehmet at their prime. Mehmed could only conquer albania eight years after scanderbeg died when he was old and didn’t have time left to conquer Italy because it was time for him to die. That’s how albania saved italy and eventually Europe.

Did not know about occupation of Otrento! However, I’m surprised you didn’t put in the battle of Lepanto and the Siege of Malta as decisive factors for the Ottomans failure to conquer Italy.

I was just about to say that, the battle of Lepanto halted the Ottomans from making any more forays into the Italian states, it proved their unity when faced with a common treat!

Im Albanian and this makes me sense. In those times we were the fear of a empire. Then when they conquered us, Albania became divided in many little tribes all fooled by Serbs, Turks and Great powers to fight each other and slowly loosing power. But one thing we kept, to win battles with literally nothing against organized armies.

Good video that explains well something that always puzzled me. That is to say, given the fact that the powerful Ottoman Empire was just opposite Italy, why didn't the Ottomans invade?

I wouldn't say that they didn't have adequate resources, at least not on land. They attacked and besieged Vienna in both 1529 and 1683, even though they suffered defeats on both occasions.
