    0. Sorry for the late release - rendering 8k videos is painful.
    1. Audibooks are really good - I have recently been listening to the Wheel of Time audibooks, narrated by Kate Reading and Michael Kramer - a completely new experience, must try. Audible has all kinds of historical stuff, too, so try it out, that will help our channel immensely: www.audible.com/kingsandgenerals
    2. Ottoman series is a mess and we have completely resigned to this fact. It is impossible to form a straightforward narrative, so you will see some jumping back and forth. For instance, a very interesting siege of Klis happened around the same time and we will probably cover it separately. Simultaneously, the Ottomans were fighting the Portuguese everywhere from West Africa to India, but it is hard to present those battles within the main timeline, so expect a standalone episode on that down the line. Still, this series is a perfect vehicle to cover a long period and many regions, so we will run it all the way to 1923.
    3. Unfortunately, not all sources are accessible for us. Apparently there is a Croatian retelling of Gorjani, but since we don't know the language and no translation is available. We will try to rectify it down the line.

      Thank you for your effort. It has a great merit. But I wonder if you've considered the Ottoman sources, since all the Christian losts have been presented in the same way: the Ottomans outnumbered the Christians. The Chirstians fought braverly and were heroic. But at the end, the Christians lost, just because they were outnumbered. It seems to repeat the same excuses presented by the Christians since the Crusades. It seems to be always a one-sided view of the facts. There is no evauation of the sources, nor a critical analysis of them.

    Quick note about Tercios' surprise night attacks: they were made in small units wearing white shirts over their breastplates to make soldiers easily recognize each other. These attacks were named "encamisada" (camisa=shirt) and were deployed by Tercios against all their enemies with great success many times during the 16th and 17th centuries.

      William Ewart Gladstone Los ataques nocturnos son peligrosos, en la noche es fácil confundir a los amigos con enemigos, es más fácil perderse, alejarse de tus compañeros, etc... requieren de una disciplina férrea, un gran control de tus tropas, y pocos ejércitos entrenaban para llevarlos a cabo, y muchos ataques nocturnos han acabado en desastre por esto, y por eso pocos generales se atrevían a llevarlos a cabo.
      Los atenienses por ejemplo cuando atacaron Siracusa se dedicaron a matarse entre sí al no ser capaces de reconocerse por la noche.
      Para eso sirven las camisas blancas, la diferencia es que los tercios se entrenaban habitualmente en ésta táctica para utilizarla sin los riesgos de otros ejércitos. Por eso eran tan efectivas.

      @Reshpeck They may have inherently hated the Ottomons, but they maintained stability in the region. Human beings naturally just want to work, feed themselves, and live relaxing lives. The Ottomons allowed them to do this. Fighting for the empire became fighting for their way of life. The rest of Europe suffered much more turbulence. Think about how much of a mess the balkans became after the collapse of the empire.

    Finally, I would like to explain that the Spanish tercio name was the name of their "general" Sarmiento. This Tercio retreated in a previous battle during the Italians war. According to the ordinances, if a Tercio unit retreat from battle field they would be disolved and they would be mark as cowards. Luckily for them, a new Ottoman war started and they were giving a second chance to recover their prestige. As they retreated before they have to reject the generous offer from Barbarossa. Death before dishonor.

      Where exactly is stated that if a Tercio unit retreated from the battlefield they would be disolved and they would be mark as cowards? Where can I see those ordinances? It seems many myths have been created around the tercios by the Spaniards. The tercios Villalba y Garcíez retired from the Rocroi battlefield, since they surrender.ed The only ordinance for the Spanish tercios existing in this year of 1537, was the Ordenanza de Génova, and it didn't mention ANYTHING about this subject.

    That was not the end of the glorious Tercio though. Time later a handfull of prisoners in Constantinople would manage to break free, steal a friggin boat and arrive to Cartagena (Spain) months later. And the first bloody thing they'd do would be to report to their King as the last survivors of Castelnuovo.

      Reminds me of the Soviet POWs who stole a German bomber from a military base where they were working as forced labour building rocket station for the Nazis.
      They reported to Soviet forces and told them about the wunderwaffen Germans were developing. They were arrested as traitors becaause they had surrendered to Germans in the first place.
      One of them later received honours because some scientists and military officers realized the info they gave was important.
      Seven were sent to rifle units and 5 of them died in action.
      Three escapes POW officers were kept under investigation.
      The main character of that story is Mikhail Devyataev.

    Sarmiento stayed to defend Castelnuovo without any possibility before an overwhelming ottoman force. Having received an offer of surrender that would save their lives, they had to choose between life and honor and, of course, it was a spanish Tercio... the unit that dominated battlefields for almost 150 years. If the defenders had been anglo-saxons, Hollywood would have already made two movies... BTW, for us the spaniards is Charles (Carlos) I of Spain and V of Germany, the very first of our Habsburgs.

      Usually the defenders of fortified places fought superior enemies, since the fortifications gave them a great adavantage. It is a pity that Spaniards don't have a respectable movie industry, and that their movies are not even accepted among the spanish-speaking peoples in America. But they retaliate begging space on the ANGLO-SAXON social networks to self-glorify their lost empire in every corner. And remember, the spanish tercios only dominated battlefields in Western Europe, not in the whole world. Wit the aid of mercenaries.

      @Rellos Apostolos Greetings from Spain, brother. The Greeks have always been fierce warriors and, above all, the fathers of Western civilization with Rome. In Spain there is a lot of respect for Greece and the Greeks, as many served and gave their lives for Spain. An example is Pedro de Candia, a Greek Conquistador who participated in the conquest of the Inca Empire. He was one of the thirteen of fame and one of the most important Conquistadors in American history. He was named Grande de España (Great of Spain), the highest dignity that a man outside the royalty can receive in Spain. Ignore the Turkish haters.

    Castelnuovo (Herceg Novi)'s biggest perk is its topography. It's a very steep town, a nightmare assault, and there are 4 fortresses in the town (the whole town was surrounded by walls and every level was difficult to take. Those steps are killing tourists of the town, cant imagine how exhausting would be to assault those walls from below, for an armed soldier.

So it was worse than be alive and rich for him, and if you add that the vision of christians in that era about muslims was that they were literally the followers of the antichrist, he could have becomen a traitor to the king and to the pope.

This is under the assumption that the commander didn't expect to get any aid.

    Sarmiento refused to surrender saing: "Come when you want" ("Que vengan cuando quieran"). And when the commander of the last 200 spaniards, Machín de Munguía, was captured, Barbarroja offered him to comand an Ottoman fleet, the response of Machín was spitting on the feet of Barbarroja and saing: "before death that dishonors" ( "Antes la muerte que la deshonra "). And after that he was executed. Sorry for my english. Honor for those brave Spanish soldiers🇪🇸

    Not one to complain about anything on expertly made videos, but Ferdinand was Charles V brother and not his son. Ferdinand ruled the holy roman empire in the name of his brother until he himself became Emperor after his brother's death. Charles V's son and heir Philpp inherited Spain, Flanders and the american territories of the spanish empire while the empire went to his uncle Ferdinand since ruling all those territories was incredibly difficult at a time with no modern day transportation or communications.

Barbarossa offered him to work for him or death, he preferred death and was beheaded on the spot.

I'm not just trying to be right and prove you wrong, you know. I'm actually attempting a dialogue here. Wasting my time?

      @Gelir Gecer Ah, I see what is going on. You are speaking ideologically, wanting your own history to be represented in a way that favors your civic pride. As an American, I completely understand. However, you would not expect me to pretend that my country is not actually responsible for the atrocities committed in her name, would you?
      Turkey has a history that extends far further back than the United States. Before the Ottomans was the Byzantines, and the Romans, and the Persians. The truth of your country's history is not something that can be subjected to the preferences of its modern citizens. Only a detached and objective appreciation of the historical record can reveal that truth. As a Turk, I should expect you would want to love your country as she truly is, with the full, unwashed completeness of her history, rather than love a fiction.
      Our debate is only a minor matter. The military prowess of the Janissaries is unique to history-no other nation may claim anything like it. It does not do to minimize their massive impact on not only the development of the former Turkish empire, greatest of its time for centuries, but the course of history over the entire globe. Neither should one gloss over their corruption and bloat, largely contributing to the eventual imperial disintegration, only to be rescued from the fate to which the Levant, Arabia, Northern Africa-indeed the very remnants of the empire-were subjected, but for the surviving legacy of the Ottoman martial tradition and spirit, effectively harnessed for the survival of Turkish independence by the brilliant Ataturk. This is a credit to the Janissaries as much as to Tanzimat, a century removed regardless. All other aspects of the Ottoman Empire's history are no less unique, glorious, revolutionary, progressive, tyrannical, inspiring, despairing, incredible.
      It seems to me that this need you have displayed, to diminish one of the greatest aspects of your own civic history, is indicative of an insecurity you have: a lack of confidence in the rest of your history-particularly that with which you more closely identify-to stand on its own merits. It is as though I wished to downplay my country's history of enslavement, genocide of the natives, continuous manipulation of sovereign states for our own gain, or any other atrocious part of US history, because I did not believe that our conduct in the face of fascism, communism, and totalitarianism; our promotion of free trade, capitalist ideology, and concomitant global spread of individual liberties and prosperity; our unprecedented level of charity, and support for the weaker peoples of the world against the strong who would otherwise dominate them; they are not sufficient unless one forgets all the other aspects of American history. This is in fact occurring right now everywhere here, with critical race theory, the 1614 project, Black Lives Matter, and what have you. It only results in the destruction of all that was once good about a nation. Don't do it to your own, as we are doing here.

The Spanish fort is still standing in the city. This conquest of barbarosa had however big implications for the bay. Since the city of castel nuovo (hercegnovi ) is at the entrance of the bay it hindered the trade in kotor we had many sailing ships and the people were merchants. The problem was later solved when the venitions took over the city togheer with local captains one who distinguished himself was Vicko Bujovic.

    I think Suleiman is one of the least capable of the Ottoman rulers. He has a complete super power at his disposal, yet he withdrew from way too many battles compared to other Ottoman rulers who came up on top even against greater odds. He is forming unnecessarily huge armies against smaller foes, wasting the royal treasury. He also killed many important statesmen, along with the most prominent heir to the throne. He left a bankrupt empire to the people who don't know how to rule.

    Good video, though 1532 campaign, covered briefly at the beginning went slightly differently. First, most of the pillaging (most notably Graz), happened after the siege of Kiseg (in Croatian), as Turks were going back. The reason why Ibrahim thought Jurišić had more man was because he was one of the envoys in 1530. Now, that talks were strange. Envoys only knew Latin and German, while Turks knew Turkish and Greek (Ibrahim was actually Greek). As a consequence, the actual negotiations were mostly between Jurišić and Suleiman himself. Suleiman was fluent in Serbian, and Croatian is almost the same. Ibrahim did not like this, so he had kind of grudge against Jurišić-
    Jurišić was not sent to defend Kiseg, it was actually his choice to defend his own castle. He only had 38 professional soldiers (personal guard) and managed to buy some 650 muskets and then trained 650 peasants, refugees after the Mohač battle, for about two weeks before the Turks arrived. He did not intend to stop the Turks, only to hold the castle. Basically, the siege itself is described in the same way in the Austrian and Turkish sources until the last day. (There is a letter sent on the night before the last assault to Vienna, in which Jurišić states they are out of gunpowder.)
    The last day versions differ, but what is sure is that Suleiman granted Kiseg to Jurišić for his bravery, as this is also noted in both Austrian and Turkish sources. Most likely, there was a nominal surrender, which saved the Croats from execution and saved face to Suleiman (well, not really...).

    During the siege of Osijek, The Ottoman relief force would have done well to concentrate on a single wall front and it's siege camp. This would have both increased their odds of routing their opposition due to local numerical superiority, and also it would have made it possible for the defenders to focus their efforts of reinforcing the walls for the other two still threatened wall fronts.
    Yet ignoring this conventional approach of defeating the enemy in detail, the shock and confusion of a general attack forced the enemy to lift the siege. This enabled the Ottoman force to merge with the city garrison and further made it possible for a field battle victory to be achieved.

    @Kings and Generals : Guys, you're missing on some very important details about the history and battles you are describing. I am talking about the time it took for one army or another army to move from point A to point B. For example how quickly did the forces of Suleiman reach the north western border of Hungary to attack Ferdinand Hapsburg? Was it days? (probably not). Weeks? Months? Was it limited by the speed of horses? Were they all on horses? I assume not since it would require too many horses. So did the horses move at the speed infantry can walk? This kind of detail is very important to understand the scale. It doesn't even have to be described in every battle and army movement, but maybe at least in important battles.

    This proves beyond any reasonable doubt that the Spanish Tercios were the very best and bravest fighting unit of the 16th century.

    Hey Kings and Generals, please do a video about the Visigoths, I’d really appreciate it as reading it on Wikipedia or watching Kings and Generals do a documentary about it? Yeah, I’d choose Kings and Generals.

      @Benji N Ottomans had armored units too like Qapıkulu spahis and serdengeçti janissaries. Ottoman tactics proved to be surperior during 14th century to 17th.

    What the Spaniards did in the 16th and first half of the 17th centuries is unmatched in world history, except perhaps by the romans.

      @Armin Cal the mexicas suffered diseases cause their great city Tenochtitlan was built next to a lake and the first rule of architecture in that times was never build a city near of a lake. After spaniards conquered the city, their engineers dried completely the lake from the city, with all the shitty technology of the time

    Can you do one on the Long Turkish War of the later 16th century and 17th century?
    So many of the generals of the 30 Years War fought in it from Tilly, Wallenstein to a host of other famous imperial/ Protestant generals.
    If was one of the last efforts of solidarity btw the Catholics and the Protestants before the horrors of the 17th century

      @john leber Thete were several armadas as big or bigger than 1588. They landed in Ireland, they also labded in Cornwall fought in Scotland...there were attacks on london, Southampton, Wigh, Plymouth, Cornwalles. As much as i respect the UK bravery it shocks me how deliberately ypu have been lied abput your own history when it comes to Spain, and only Spain. The fact that your official history diminishes our true power actually insults the bravery and glory of ypur soldiers who fough against us.
      I have studied the histoey of UK quite well and lived in uk, and i respect both of us past snd bravery.
      Sslute to the bravery and resilience of British fallen soldiers.

      @Random Guy Lol, It is just the opposite. Everything you said is just the opposite. They worked much better as an open field unit because they were created for that. To maneuver in battles with pikes, arquebusers and muskets. Have you seen many pikes in sieges? Of course not, man. But they adapted to almost any type of combat. You could put them in ships like in Lepanto, where they crushed the Turks. You could put them on walls like in Castelnuovo or in Malta. Where they again crushed the Turks. The jenízaros were good, brave and disciplined, but he was a type of soldier who had become dated in the 16th century. It was the soldiers who took Constantinople and they had hardly evolved.
