The Ottoman’s New Lake
In this episode of the history of the Ottoman Empire, we are back to the Suleiman vs. the West narrative. This time the Ottomans have their focus on Venice, who was supported by the Pope, and our old friend, and the Holy Roman Emperor, Charles V, who was aided by his great admiral, Doria. Finally, Suleiman is back to his winning ways, and not the false victories that he has been celebrating for his last few exhibitions, but actual victories that dealt major blows to the west and put the Ottomans in a position of power that they had never experienced before. Barbarossa also proved himself the superior to Doria not by decisive naval victories, but by outmaneuvering the superior forces of his western counterpart.
