Plot / Synopsis
In 1453, the Byzantine capital of Constantinople is surrounded by Ottoman Turks. The city is but a shadow of its former glory due to the empire's ever receding coffers, while the Ottoman Empire continues to grow rich. After years of tolerating the existance of Byzantium, the ambitious sultan, Mehmet II launches his campaign to end the Byzantine Empire and take Constantinople for the Ottomans, resulting in arguably the greatest siege of that age.

I can't seem to get the English subtitles to appear with either Media Player Classic or VLC :/ Which player did you use for this?

There goes the power of Rome... But if there is no such thing as witches, then why is there need for the Inquisition?

But then you had Janosh Hunyadi (1456. Failed Turkish Siege of Belgrad) and later on Vlad Tepesh, not to mention Hunyadi's son, Rex Mathias Corvinus, and the mighty Turks are suddenly stopped ... at least for a while. And those French and English knights, that you were talking about earlier on, were still nowhere in sight... I guess there was no oil in the bargain, right?
There is but one god... it's just people call him by different names. And using the different names as excuses and false explanations, they wage wars against each other, thus furthering their own selfish aims.
ThanxXx of the upload, though, Ani, it looks like a worthwhile effort, and let's be honest, we should all be happy that great historical epochs are coming these days, not just from Hollywood, depicting the Western views on history but from Turkey, Russia, China, and let's hope, from Africa, too, soon...

Without that cannon cast by Urban (and without so many other guns made by him and his team, as well), the walls of Constantinopole would've been extremely hard to be conquered. The turks had a big army, but the advantage of those walls replaced the need for a big number of people defending the walls. It is said that the numbers were somewhere around: Byzantine's Empire army + the help of Giustiniani's professional soldiers (of only 700 genovese & greeks) =~ 7000 soldiers + 26 ships against the Ottoman's Empire army (and some help of Durad Branković army that I have no knowledge of the number) of around 80.000 (or a double number from some other sources) + 70 ships & 20 galleys... This was, indeed, one of the greatest sieges from the history, but, in case the French & the English people weren't involved in their 100 Years War that ended with the Battle of Castillon on 17 July 1453 (so, 2 months after the Fall of Constantinopole), I believe this siege would've ended with Mehmed II's army being destroyed. Mehmed II was a smart man though and probably studied well the best time for his conquest war.... So, the Middle Ages just ended.
Thank you very much for the film. An important history file has been written in 1453 in the Eastern part of Europe and, 2 months later, in the western part. Thank you once again.
