This is something that has intrigued me for a while. What if the Ottomans, rather than being pushed back after the siege of Vienna, had been victorious and captured Vienna? I'm not sure if they could hold Austria and Royal Hungary - but then again, the Ottoman administrative system was rather excellent and might come through once again. Or, overstrech could take its toll and leave the empire weakened. Could we possibly see Ottoman raids into Bavaria and Northern Italy? Venice itself would seem to be a particularly enticing target - what better way for an enterprising Sultan to secure glory and riches for himself than to conquer the city that had been a constant rival for over a century? Venice would also be an excellent staging ground for the aforementioned raids into mainland Italy. Anyways, discuss.
