    There is just one fact in this video that is the fall of Constantinople. Rest is garbage. And now I'm wandering what if this is same for your other videos. Shame.

    The Eastern Roman empire had been dead for hundreds of years before Constantinople fell in 1453, the turks we're like carrion feasting on a corpse when they took that city.

    Video contain Turk and Islam enemietion. Also, Turks look like differ than Arab. I only give you one interesting information. Constantion XI and Sultan Mehmed are cousions each other. I advise you straight history is wrong. True history is complicated.

    Yes neibours, you've never killed anyone... Like the beginning of the 20th century. Greeks and Armenians are grateful for the "achievements" of your made nation. I can't understand one thing. Answer me this question. How can you call "Atatürk" a man that killed so many innocent and, at the biggest part, unarmed people just because he wanted to make a "clear" nation? I know that my comment is way out of the video's subject but the only thing that I see in the comment section is angry Turks complaining about the last part of the video. Understand this dear neibours: Your leaders were not, are not and they will never be peaceful with anyone in the near region.
    Love from Hellas!💙

    the Ottoman Empire is trying to spread Islam to Europe and Constantinople is the gate to Europe. The Roman king Heraclius rejected Islam leader request to spread Islam to Europe so Ottoman Empire attacked Constantinople. Then, Ottoman Empire spread across northern Africa to Andalusia (Spain) before fell to the British hand.

    Constantine XI did not die. He actually greeted Sultan Mehmet when his troops stormed Constantinople. He was one the first people to flee. There is a legend that he is inside the walls of the Hagia Sophia waiting until the day the Christians recover the city

    this all wrong. Sultan Mehmed forgives all the inhabitants. No such thing as 'violent free-for-all'. Islam is not like that. Please read the history of how Islam treated others when they win a war. Wrong facts!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Istanbul is the most beautiful city on this planet. I have been there twice and will return again. And I am sorry we (Christians) lost city, but I honestly believe that being owned by Turks actually give that city a soul and most amazing experience one could have in any city. Amount of history, beauty and "soul" you can find there...

    This video claims that turkish people which I am one of them had done many rapes and plundering. Can you search please from google and other stuff how many revolts had done by Christian people to the Ottoman Empire. And can you please also search why there is not any revelations like this in Spain? Let me tell you because there was a big genocide done by Christian people to the Muslim but in fact in Ottoman Empire many Christian people lived for centuries and the illustrations are quite bad but not making me worried if you want to think like this you are free to but I would suggest to visit istanbul and other places and see we are all humans who can share the same world by respecting each other

    constantinople wasn't plundered and civilian's were spared as sultan mehmed II was focused on pushing his claim as being the new roman emperor so he kept the local greek population and churches to strengthen his claim further. and he was well aware of how important the city is that plundering would've backfired.

    Other One of this story is something that is not really true, if you know that ottoman empire is muslim, than muslim watchers, dont complain their story that already their culture. And were not have rights to change their story. So there is same story about this and one of them different. So, don't complain their story remember their culture is different so don't complain about it.
