So much misinformation. Especially the last part. You simply wouldn't loot and demolish your new capital, would you?

Love this channel but extremely inaccurate. Especially about the part after the seige. Would be great if you cite your sources in the corner of the video or in the description. Also, you failed to mention that Mehmed II was also an engineer who worked in the building of those artilleries.

Why are all the turks saying this video is inaccurate or biased? Almost everything in the video is historically accurate, especially the sacking and plundering of the city which is very well documented.

They weren't called Ottomans, they were called Seljuk Turks back then. And how ironic that you didn't mention that the city fell because a crypto-Jewish community called the Donmeh opened the gates, which led to the eradication and enslavement of the natives...

This is clearly one sided. The fate was true but in case Mehmed II order his army to plunder the city is totally fake. Try to reconsider base on both side story

And no the population of constantinapole didn't became slaves. Actually Mehmet the 2nd had a public talk about how everyone in the city was free to practice their culture and religion. It's better to add that most citizens saw being around muslims less irritating than idea of catholic help.

The four ships that broke thorugh ottoman fleet that you were talking about were 6 or more times bigger than the biggest ships the ottomans have, it did not humiliate the empire. It just got it angry.

Last part was most likely a lie to make it sympathetic to the loser. I think it's more like bragging statement. Well it's the fate of all European cities soon enough and murica won't survive as long as byzantine since at the very moment I'm writing this their moving ever faster to self destruction.

Loukas Notaras "I would rather see a Turkish turban in the midst of the City (i.e., Constantinople) than the Latin mitre" ; The Byzantines simply preferred for Muslims to rule than Catholic Christians! It was a Byzantine coup over their emperor; There were 5 Greek Christian Orthodox Phalange fighting on the side of the Muslims, etc...
