Mehmed II, also known as Mehmed the Conqueror, was an Ottoman Sultan who ruled first for a short time from August 1444 to September 1446, and later from February 1451 to May 1481. At the age of 21, he conquered Constantinople and brought an end to the Byzantine Empire.
Mehmed continued conquests in Anatolia with its reunification, and in Southeast Europe as far west as Bosnia. Mehmed is considered a hero in modern-day Turkey and parts of the wider Muslim world. He was often brutal to the people in the conquered lands. Europe celebrated joyously when he died.
Although Mehmed II died unsatisfied in his goal to build a universal empire, he had established the primacy of the Ottoman Turks within the Muslim world. He extended Ottoman influence east as far as the Euphrates and west throughout the Balkans and even onto the Italian peninsula.
Whether reviled for his brutality and his fervor or saluted for these successes, Mehmed the Conqueror, built a vibrant capital of a growing Turkish Empire from the remains of Byzantium, which would be a major world power over the next four centuries.
