The Ottomans didn't do anything to the people, they just threw a Quran somewhere and left, the city was already destroyed due to the 1204 sack, although minor repair had been done, help didn't arrive due to lack of moral of European monarchs over Byzantine survival and the Schism, although Mehmet was sad due to the damage from the 1204 sack, he thought it was him who did it and did quote ''What a city we have lost to pillaging''

@Lman18 First of all as a fan of history I know what I said is based on historic fact. But just because you don't agree with does not mean you have to right to accuses me of spreading propaganda. Frankly, I actually love this channel but I not foolish to believe everything that comes out of the media these days. And plus I know you google your definition.

If you seek rapes, mass murders, sacking and destroying the whole roman heritage, this is not the video you gotta watch. You gotta browse 4th Crusade 1204 for this...not this misleading vid.

I really disappointed with this video. In that time, looting was normal. Lets talk about looting of Istanbul from fourth Crusader. Sultan Fatih was genius, he didn't touch Hagia Sophia. He gave rights to the princes of Byzantium to rule different part of areas. the most important thing is that as a Turk, we are successor of Sumerians, Hitit, Troy. We have been living in Anatolia before Roman Empire. Before Roman Empire, Persians, Great Alexander were there as well. You explained it partially and biased. Fatih brought people from Europe especially from Serbia to boost economy, population of Istanbul. He was planning to capture Rome. Lol. Turks did not come from Mars. We are the owner of Anatolia. Look at our customs which are similar to Sumerians. Our father of Turks , Kemal Ataturk said that after our Big Attack 1922 to defend our country, We took revenge of Hector, from Troy. He searched tombs of Hannibal of Carthage. Lets talk about Huns, Attilla.

@Blackbeard yes we came and TOOK the anatolia. Now anatolia and istanbul in our hands. When Constantinapole conqured city is looted this is true, but this loot is not a massacre unlike fourth crusade and massacre in juresselem (1th crusade). After the conquer Konstantiniye get more rich and be center of science. And yes we are conquering the northern chine and still riding horse when was rome at it's prime (like make peoples fight for fun and saying barbarian for out of them). Bht when we look history we can see conquer of constantinople is not a messecare(if only you want see from everyside).
Blackbeard 7 days ago
No you guys did not, you've got no idea what you're talking about. All of this is just Turkish propaganda. The Turks is a part of the Altaic-family tree, and are descending from steppes in Asia. Just like the Mongols when you guys had enough horses and enough people, you INVADED Anatolia and took it from the Byzantines. The Turks have existed for a long time, but never in that region. Make sure you know the facts before you comment something as absurd as this. When Rome was at it's prime, you guys were still breeding horses somewhere in Asia. You guys had absolutely no idea what was going on in the world, lol.

In 1918 when Europe tore the Ottoman Empire completely apart and the west no longer cared about that 3rd world city. Istanbul is not considered a prize just another primitive Muslim city of no consequence like Damascus, Baghdad ,Teran and Cairo. Its 2019 not 1455.
