Points of Divergence : The Ottoman Empire

The Ottoman Empire was a country based in Turkey and the Balkans that existed from the fourteenth century to the twentieth century. It rose to prominence after sieging, capturing, and making a capital of the city of Constantinople, former capital of the Byzantine Empire. After the Fall of Constantinople in 1453, the Ottomans conquered most of the Balkans, as well as the Middle East and North Africa. Leading much of the world in technology for centuries, the Ottoman Empire was one of the most powerful nations on earth for long periods of time, as member Abdul Hadi Pasha will gladly tell you. AH.Commers adore the Ottoman Empire, because it is often seen as the successor state to the Byzantine Empire, which was in turn the successor state to the Roman Empire. As is the case with the other two Empires, the Ottomans are the topic of much discussion on AH.Com. Sadly, the Ottomans ceased to be shortly after WW1 for a variety of reasons.
