    You can't help but laugh at the Ottomans and the Hapsburgs, who spent centuries on end fighting each other, only to lose both their empires whilst fighting side by side.

      Janissaries where Kidnapped Christian kids from the Turkish occupied lands at early age from their Christian families, so they can be trained and serve the needs of the Ottoman Empire. Ultimately the janissaries been fooled into going in to enclosed stadium to vent their grievances. On the top of the stadium were camouflaged machines guns, as per the order of the Soutane, mowed them all down. The Janissaries were no longer a threat to the Sultan and it was the end of them.🥷🙀✌️

BTW, there is a great video about Vienna and Khotin from a channel called Sand Rhoman history, or something like that. He's good, but not on the same level as Kings and Generals

      @Augustiniu Mihaila First of all most of the wealth of the world was held in warm climates for the majority of history. Egypt, Mesopotamia, Indus valley, Southern Greece and Italy. So, there usually was no reason to invade places like Romania. As regards to the Arabs, they were some of the fiercest fighters ever, many a time being outnumbered 3 to 1 on the low estimates, they literally didn't have swords or armor for the most part, and still defeated the Romans, Persians, and the formidable Northern African roman city-states. You don't even have to look far, just watch the K&G: Early Muslim Expansion. But people like you were fed propaganda, no one ever wanted those forests in Transylvania or Wallachia it was a flex for the Ottomans.

    Though the Sipahi were a problem for Ottoman stability, a bigger threat were the Janissaries.
    The Janissary forces were already disgruntled with the Sultanate as far back as the waning years of Suleiman the Great's reign, when political intrigue led to the assassination of Suleiman's heir Sehadze Mustafa, by his father's bodyguards (who went full Emporer Aurelian on the poor kid), and the ascension of Selim II as crown prince. The underhanded manner in which Selim ascended made him look weak to Janissaries (and Mustafa was a proven leader), and led to tensions with Suleiman. Selim proved their suspicions, as he was an ineffectual hedonist who spent most of short reign in feasts and drinking parties with his cronies.
    After Selim's death in 1574, the Janissary leaders briefly reconciled with new Sultan Murad III, an unmistakably pious man compared to his father. But Murad's reign was an unhappy and calamitous one. Anatolia had seen a population boom under Suleiman and Selim, but the 1580s brought severe drought to Anatolia, causing mass displacement of agricultural workers to major cities, saturating labor markets and reducing wages. And then while all of this was happening, Turkey and the rest of Europe were inundated with cheap, high quality Spanish silver from the mines at Potosi in Spanish Peru, causing the debased Ottoman silver coinage to lose value drastically due to inflation. Unable to earn fair wages, Ottoman laborers became increasingly restive. More importantly the Janissaries forced Murad III to become a virtual prisoner of the Tokapi Palace, where he stayed constantly to prevent a Janissary backed rival taking control of the state. Another looming problem were the Jelali, part time militiamen specializing in musketry and who were mercenaries for the Porte or its regional officials, and now couldn't earn wages as either civilians or soldiers.

    Michael the Brave had a remarkably disciplined army. Attacking a superior enemy and then tying to pull off that tactical retreat with most other armies of the period would have ended with the force disintegrating into a panicking mob but his guys pulled it off.

      His army was made mainly of mercenaries from Serbia, Albania, Székely troops and a contingent o infantry from the Prince of Transilvania. He understood that a national army made of peasants could not cope with modern war of that time so he made his army of paid professionals. His main problem was the money to finance such an army. When the money dried out he was forced to abandon his enterprise and go to Viena to ask for help from Emperor Rudolf.

    He wasn't named Michael the Brave for nothing. The man was an absolute chad with huge balls. He was a descendent of the royal families of Moldova and Wallachia, also by his mother side he was related to the last roman family that ruled Constantinopole, the Cantacuzinos. Next episode will be how with his allies he overcomes the ottoman army at the bridge battle over the Danube, the battle of Giurgiu. It isnt mentioned in the video but when the wallachian army was pushing back the ottomans, Michael knew the advantage will be lost soon, so he did what Sinan Pasa did, he gathered his personal retinue and dived in the middle of the battle, cutting janissaries left and right. This acted as a morale boost for his soldiers as they pushed the ottomans even more.

    The most painful and well-known part of this war for us Turks is the destruction of most of the Akıncı cavalry units, which had served the Ottomans for hundreds of years, due to the greed of Koca Sinan Pasha. While the Ottomans were withdrawing, Koca Sinan Pasha had a stand set up on the opposite side of the bridge to distribute the spoils, although it was dangerous, and said that no one could cross the bridge without sharing the spoils. Therefore, the Ottoman army lost a lot of time during the bridge crossing. Meanwhile, the Wallachian army, which followed the Ottoman army, caught up with the Akıncı cavalry units, which were in the back row of the Ottoman army. And they killed most of these troops by firing artillery. The raider cavalry units could not recover after this incident and were dispersed.

    When I realized Michael the Brave was going to show up, I got so excited and felt well researched. Then to actually see him and watch him do his thing, remarkable. I do wonder if the troops that pursued Michaels army after the feigned retreat, did so because he did cause a great deal of atrocities against the Ottomans. Their hate for him was probably so strong, since the call to war against him raised such a large army.

    Just saying but I can’t wait to see you cover the Crimean war, the Balkan wars and the Russian Turkish war of 1768-1774 and the Russian Turkish war 1787-1792 and I’m interested in the war of 1787 and 1792 because fighting on the side of the Russians was a man who is sometimes referred to as the father of the United States Navy and this man was John Paul Jones.

    Would be nice if you would cover the Battle of Teisani (1602) when Han Gazi Ghirai toghether with 40000 tatars invaded Wallachia. They battled for 3 days and since the battle was undecided and the Han himself was wounded, the Han's nephew who was the strongest of the Tatars called upon the Wallachians for a 1 on 1 duel against him, to decide the outcome of the battle. Stroe Buzescu who was one of Michael the Brave's captains accepted the challenge. All though Stroe's physical strength and size weren't on par with that of the Tatar and he wasn't in his young years anymore he managed to win the duel and behead the Tatar warrior and with this secured the win for the Wallachians. Unfortunately Stroe himself also died days later because the Tatar had poisoned the tip of his sword.before the duel started.

    HistoryMarche channel here on youtube covered also Michael The Brave story...was a huge audience for their channel , because not many know history from Balkans and what they faced for many centuries of ottoman occupation, but some brave men pick the sword and fought for their freedom in their lands...they tried ,with facts ...and strong leaders in Wallachia - Vlad The Impaler of Michael The Brave or Stephen The Great in Moldova , their battles to escape from Ottoman Empire must be known for history
