DESCRIPTION

The Ottoman Dynasty is the one and only dynasty to incessantly rule over an empire for more than six centuries. Of the thirty-six Ottoman Sultans emerged extraordinary commanders, brilliant statesmen, highly talented sportsmen, masterful musicians, distinguished calligraphers, notable poets, and renowned composers. This book illustrates these powerful men not only with their victories on the battlefield and caliphate status, but also with snapshots from their personal lives.
