      The number of regular professional paid soldiers ( Kapıkulu ) employed by the High Porte throughout the Ottoman Empire did not exceed 15 - 16,000 men in the first third of the 16th century.[30] The Ottomans obtained most of the arquebuses for their janissary army from Hungarian and Venetian gunsmiths. This phenomenon was so widespread and severe, that in 1525 the Hungarian Parliament had to pass a law against the export of Hungarian-made arquebuses for the Ottoman Empire.[32]

      @Ahmed AlFaraj I do not think so. The Hungarian infantry was fightingat the Turks cannon lineand the Hungarian right wing already started to run away . Bali bey after destroying the Hungarians camp just closed into the Hungarian infantry and massacred them. The "all in" attack agains the superior enemy in number (probably 3-4 to 1 ) was the worst decision .

      @Vincent Youravich also need to know your limits. like yildirim (thunder) bayezid . this sultan of ours was the definition of not holding your horses. he would march to the battlefield in front of his cavalry. his men couldnt keep up with him, it was this problem of his that lead to his capture to mongols, he was greatly outnumbered, yet he launched at the mongols like thunder, he was way to ahead of his own army, which made it possible for mongols to surround him and capture. he was quite a fighter and eager to die ahead of his soldiers, which was his strength and weakness! he was a very angry man too :) he almost caused the destruction of ottoman empire as a result of his capture by running way ahead of his army, empire was left headless, and had a quite long bad time to get back up.

    I have a recommendation for upcoming videos. They would be perfect when you would show us how the soldiers looked like (like in your thumbnails). It's sometimes hard to imagine it with just the name of the troops. When you speak about Teutonic Knights for example then show a picture how they looked like for a few seconds.
    Other than that your videos are amazing.

    Fun fact: I was in school in the good ol' 80's and when it came to learn about our loss at Mohács, we were told that Tomori charged (so far okay) in the center (apparently not) with the infantry (he definitely did not lead them, according to the video) and the Ottomans feigned retreat leading him and his troops in front of their cannons. Now, at 46, I have to face the fact that we actually charged at the cannons without any trickery from the Turks. Noice. It's an interesting feeling learning how you knew something fundamental wrong for almost 4 decades...

      Maybe historical sources about the battle were not quite clear. In such case historians may prepare several descriptions of the battle depending on their interpretations and guessings. Moreover descriprion of famous battles tha is presented at schools are always simplified. Additionaly I think historymarche sometimes uses translations o battle descriptions from Polish historians (because is easier to translate from Polish than from Hungarian - because some names are pronounced in Polish manner).

      @Transylvanian no. Cannons cant stop direct cavalry attack. So ottoman armys design is abnormal in this war. Their design is 3 line. First line retreat than second and last line is cannons and rifles. And first and second line didnt only retreat they spread flanks. And some of ottoman armys in ambush they attackd from back. Than hungarians escaped. However there was only 1 way -swamp-.

      I found like three depictions of the battle so far, and I think ultimately we will never really know the absolute truth, battles were very chaotic things, in this ibstance most of the Hungarian high command died also, so it's not like they were able to leave behind their take of the events.

      There is a war tactic used by the Turks throughout history. 'Turan tactic' or 'Wolf trap'. The vanguards stage a mock attack and retreat. Seeing this, the leaders attack with their entire army, but the real army has already passed behind them. Mohaç is the best war in which the Turks used this tactic. It would be unfair to both the Hungarians and the Turks to say that the Hungarian cavalry, which was the best in Europe at that time, attacked the cannons. I advise you not to reference only western sources in your sources.

      I read in a book about Hungarian cavalry overall, that the initial cavalry charge itself was devastating for Turkish infantry, but after they turned around for round 2, the infantry chained the cannons together, making an obvious obstacle for the horses. And standing horsemen are much more easier targets.

    The Battle of Mohacs is one of my most favorite battles like of all time! Why? Not only because the Ottoman Empire was at its peak during this time but it also because this battle is the ultimate result of the French's defeat at the Battle of Pavia in the Italian Wars as well. And when that happened, it led to the Franco-Ottoman alliance, which led to the military operations such as the Battle of Mohacs.
    Speaking of Franco-Ottoman alliance, will this channel featured a video about it in the future? I hope so because such a content is so rare to find on KZclip.

      @Hannibal Barca its an incredibly important battle in Hungarian, Austrian, and Turkish culture, as well as something that even random counts in france and england would have heard and known about, which takes an earthshattering like event to happen at that time period. There was no postal system, no telegraphs, not even really a network of communication outside of the church. I would expect at least them would have heard about this battle, the vast majority of americans can name a few (historical) wars and battles america was involved in, revolutionary war, civil war, and maybe if they paid attention the war of 1812, and mexican american war.

      It is said that Carthage went around western Africa to around Ghana. That would mean the sailing technology of the caravel wasn't necessary to do that, which would mean that Iberians could have gone around Africa back in the days of Rome or the Visigothic kingdom.

      @tinecaa tinecaa Mali was Muslim and could have helped the Turks also, with the Niger river having access to the Atlantic and further west.

    The weather conditions are not mentioned in the video but they could have influenced the entire battle. 29 August 1526 started as a very hot day. During noon, there was no wind and the heat was extreme on the battlefield. The leaders of the army were humans and one may tend to make quick and perhaps not well-grounded decisions in such circumstances just not to remain standing on the field. However, at the end of the battle, a storm broke out. Heavy wind, rainfall and half-darkness made the escape of the fragmented Hungarian army extremely difficult and such weather conditions made the catastrophe more serious.

    On fields of green, the armies stood, The air was tense, the mood was crude. The sun shone bright, upon the land, And warriors readied sword in hand.
    The drums began to beat their sound, The trumpets echoed all around. The clash of steel, the roar of men, The battle of Mohacz had begun.
    The Ottomans, a mighty force, Faced the Hungarians, with no remorse. The two sides clashed, in brutal fight, As warriors fell, in endless night.
    The Hungarians fought with all their might, But the Ottomans proved too strong to fight. Their arrows flew, their horses charged, Their victory, the Hungarians discharged.
    The cries of agony, filled the air, As soldiers fell, without a prayer. The battle raged, for hours on end, Until the Ottomans emerged as the ascend.
    The Hungarians suffered great defeat, Their king and soldiers, no longer neat. The Ottomans claimed their victory, Leaving the land in great misery.
    The Battle of Mohacz, a day of pain, Where many lives, were lost in vain. A reminder of the cost of war, And how it leaves, a lasting scar.

    I am a Turk living in Hungary and I have a big love towards the Hungarian nation as we share lots of common history stretching back to the times way before the Ottoman Empire. I feel bad for young Louis for being very inexperienced and not being able to measure the balance of power. This battle, which is the shortest pitched battle of history as it took less than 2 hours, is the reason that Charles and Ferdinand NEVER faced Suleiman on the battlefield. The effect and fear caused by the total destruction of such a major European kingdom in 2 hours, prevented them to ever dare. Even when Suleiman made his so called "German campaign" in 1532, when his army was wandering around in Graz and other HRE holdings, they did not gave the sultan the decisive battle he wanted. Suleiman wrote humiliating letters to Charles, talking about honor, bravery, mentioning that wives of Charles being more brave then him, inviting, provoking him into a battle, he did not dare. HRE in that time could easily muster more than 100000 troops from all the kingdoms, but the centralized and homogenous war machine of Suleiman had better professionalism and were better equipped. Treaty of Constantinople was signed a year after and according to the treaty, Charles and Ferdinand would never call themselves or anyone else the emperor except Suleiman, and they would be counted equal only to the grand visier of the Ottoman Empire. Also 30000 ducats would be paid to the sultan annually. The German campaign also proved the natural western borders of the Ottoman Empire, as the expansion further was not sustainable due to several logistic, political and sustainability issues. For instance, the massive Ottoman army to march to Budin from Constantinople would take 3 months by which time the campaigning season would end.

    Actually Croatian troops were already present, some 6-7000 troops from Slavonia. Another 5-6000 under Cristoph Frangepan was arriving from the south (Dalmatia). Most of Hungary was spared of warfare until Mohacs, while kongdom of Croatia was devastated since 1463, suffering several large Aknci raids every year wich led to some larger battles. Since king Matthias death none of the kings and nobles cared or did something about that. This gap and mistrust between two kingdoms was exploited by the Habsburgs who paid for garrisons and troops in Croatia as early after battle of Krbava. For this reason Habsburgs were elected unanimously for Croatian kings, Sapolya had no chances for support south of Drava river. Hungarians lost their kingdom due to the irresponsibility and arrogance of the nobility.

      @Kft Drjusa The 16th century revenue Ottoman Sultans were much lower than the income of Spanish and French monarchs. The army of Spain was far larger than the Ottoman army, and unlike the Ottomans, Spanish army remained unbeaten (let it be siege or open field battle) from 1490 to 16630s!!! Spanish also had the largest navy in the era. So the Ottoman Empire was second class power in a comparison with Spain.

      Reasons for defeat:
      "Hungarians lost their kingdom because of the irresponsibility and arrogance of the nobility."
      1/ The Hungarian nobility was there on the battlefield. They died for their country. Are you ready?
      The Turkish army was created for conquest, the Hungarian one was not. Any European country at that time would have failed against the Ottoman Empire. (Probably even now..)
      2./ The Habsburgs were in debt to the Fugger's Bank, which is why they needed the gold and silver mines in northern Hungary. They managed to get that. (There won't be peace in Africa anytime soon because of its mineral resources.)
      3/ Until 1492, a third of European gold and silver came from Hungarian mines. With the discovery of America, the economic and military power of the Kingdom of Hungary decreased, and an economic crisis appeared. In 1514, instead of a crusade, a civil war broke out. (America still plays an important role in weakening Europe today)
      4/ The Reformation divided not only the population of Europe of the time but also Hungary. (Even today there are ideas that divide Europeans.)

      Hungary wasn't spared at all. The Ottoman raids reached southern Transylvania as far as Szászváros (Orăștie) in 1420, Brassó (Brasov) in 1421, Szeben (Sibiu) in 1432, Marosszentimre (Sântimbru) in 1442, the whole today's Banat region, sometimes Bács county, and today's eastern Slavonia (Szerém and Valkó counties, then part of Hungary proper) in 1391. There was a kinda large, Hungarian-inhabited town in today's Serbian part of Srem, not far from the Croatian border, named Eng, wich was fully devastated already in 1391. Actually, the Turks reached the Croatian and Slavonian heartland later, than the southern parts of Hungary, obviously because Croatia was further away from the Ottomans, and there was a Bosnian Kingdom between them until 1463. But this doesn't detract anything from the merits of the Croats in the fight against the Turks. :) And yes, Szapolyai, and his supporters were one of the worst figures in our history.

    In Mohács there's a memorial for the battle and for the hungarian heroes who died in the battle. Many historians and archeologist work there even these days to find and give a proper funeral to the fallen. These people estimate the losses to 14000 for the hungarian side and around some thousand to the ottomans.

      @András Király Brodarics himself wrote that the Turks attacked the Hungarians camps and the killed bodies covered the whole area. So practically it is a historical fact there was mass casualties among the non combatant people. Furthermore the battle started four days before the main clash. 20 000 akindzi were sent to harass the Hungarians until the main army arrives. Sunday-Monday-Tuesday then the main battle on Wednesday. During these days there were clashes practically everywhere on the area which is 60 km2 big. So mass graves could be anywhere.

      @George Bill The thing is. That historians still dont know where exactly the battles took place (they think it wasnt only one place cause they found evidence in multiple villages).

If you take the data from the existing mass graves there were women children and old men as well. Not combatant persons. So I think the sultan's diary and another Hungarian sources are correct. 24 000 plus estimated couple of another thousands.

      That's awesome. Hope it they will find it a fantastic presentation as we all do now. I tend to like HM's way of asking the more critical questions about why certain leaders/groups make a decision before a significant event/battle throughout his videos. Or the cause that created a chain of events leading to a battle/war.
      Hence, why did the Hungarians not want to group up to combine forces? Or understanding each side's motivation for not taking the best course of action for more significant results. Really helps to start up a research paper or project for a particular topic

    THE TURKS AND THE WEST. Europe stood in awe of the Ottomans who crushed many states and conquered vast territories, going, as all patriotic Turks will proudly point out, "all the way to the gates of Vienna." European literature is replete with the depictions of the Turk as the hated enemy. The English often thought of the Turk as awe-inspiring and destructive. Thomas Fuller wrote in The Holy Warre (1639): "The Turkish Empire is the greatest... the sun ever saw. ...Grass springeth not where the grand signior's horse setteth his foot."
    Halman, T. and Warner, J., 2007. Rapture and revolution. Syracuse, NY: Syracuse University Press, Crescent Hill Publications, p.9.
    During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries , understanding the Turks ' military organization , given the credit for the greatest empire since antiquity , became a major European preoccupation .
    Speake, J., n.d. Literature of travel and exploration. p.891.
    By the middle of the 16th century, the Turks arguably possessed the greatest empire in the world.
    A History of the Middle East Paperback - March 15, 2006 by Saul S. Friedman (Author) p.181
    The Turks too , the great warriors of the steppes , were almost haughty in the assumption that they inherited the jihad fighting spirit of the tradition and carried it half - way into Europe .

    to be honest, the loss at Mohács was pretty good for the habsburgs as our king was only 20 without heir and becuase of that marriage they could claim the kingdom....not wondering why their mercenaries were "late" from the battle, also Zapolya was late and he got Erdély (transsyl) after Mohács...the battle was ended before it started.

    Hello, I wanted to tell you if you can make a video about the battle of Castelnuovo. it was a battle. it had been taken by troops of the thirds of the Spanish army the previous year during the campaign of the Holy League against the Ottoman Empire. The walled town was besieged by land and sea by a powerful Ottoman army led by Khaireddín Barbarossa, who offered an honorable surrender to the defending troops. However, this was rejected by the Spanish commander Francisco de Sarmiento and by his captains even though they were aware that the Christian fleet, defeated in the battle of Préveza, could not come to his aid.

      Cannon projectiles passed over Hungarian cavalry, thus it became ineffective but Janissary with musket volley behind chained cannons melted Hungarian heavy cavalry.

    Bu kadar çok beğenen kişiye rağmen ben bu videonun bazı eksikleri olduğunu düşünüyorum. Sanki Osmanlı ordusu sayıca çok olduğu için savaşı kazanmış gibi düşünülmesine sebep oluyor. Ayrıca savaşın gidişatında Osmanlı topçusunun etkisini yeterince göstermiyor. Ayrıca Osmanlı ordusunun o dönemde Avrupa ordularında pek görünmeyen disiplinli manevralar yapabilme özelliğinin de pek hakkı verilmemiş. Bütün okuduklarıma göre savaşın başlangıcı böyle ama Osmanlı merkezinin düşman atlılarını Osmanlı topçusuna yaklaştırması ve ardından sahte ricatla kalın zırhlı Macar ordusunun Osmanlı topçusunun ağır ateşi altında kırılması ile bu savaş kazanılmıştır. Macar süvarilerinin düşmana tek bir kütle halinde çarpıp onu yoketmek için de birbirlerine zincirlerle bağlı olması ise Macarlar top ateşi altında topluca yok edilmesine sevep olmuştur.
    Ayrıca bu savaş tabiri caizse Avrupa’nın gözünü açmış artık zırhlı süvari çağının tamamen bittiğini ateşli silahlar çağının başladığını anlamalarını sağlamıştır. Bir daha da 70 yıl boyunca Osmanlı’nın karşısına çıkmayacak, bir daha Haçova Savaşı’nda Osmanlı’nın karşısına meydan savaşı için çıktıklarında ise Avusturyalılar (aslında Almanlar) yanlarında sayıca çok ve menzili Osmanlılarınkinden daha uzun olan toplar yaparak çıkmışlardır.

      @nathan ruben The Ottomans did definitely face rebellions, actually the Balkans were pretty much in a constant state of rebellion during the Turkish wars with Russia and Austria. Nor was Ottoman rule that revolutionary, I mean the Poles arguably gave more religious freedom than the Turks.
      Regardless, none of that matters. The OP said that Hungary today still hasn’t recovered from the Turkish invasion, which is true. The reason Trianon was even able to be done is due to the mass depopulation and resettlements done by the Turks

      @Hello There We are talking about 1500. You are talking about nation states. I am trying to tell you, that nations states will not survive at those times easily. In hungarian kingdom in its hight, there were many non hungarians in their population. I wonder what were they thinking about hungarians like serbians, bulgarians etc. What about that. One way or another, a state has to grow in land or population otherwise it will cease to exist at those times. Conquering lands brings many other nations, cultures. What am I trying to tell, Ottomans at those times are most discerning, easy going government to different cultures if you compare Ottoman rule to that of europian kingdoms. The laws, penalties etc. Just compare how ordinary people are treated at those times. Check yourself. At the hight of Ottomans, they did not encounter with much rebellion by ordinary people because of bad or mismanagement. Because of that Ottomans could survive 500 years.
