Ottoman Empire

Dating to the 14th century, the Ottoman Empire was founded by Turkish tribes in the Middle East. The empire spanned more than six centuries, ending in 1922 when it was supplanted by the government of the modern Turkish republic. At its zenith during the 15th and 16th centuries, the Ottoman Empire spanned three continents, extending from the Arabian Peninsula to Ukraine and the territories of modern eastern European nations such as Romania and Bulgaria to the gates of Vienna, and across North Africa.
