Synopsis of Mehmed the Conqueror
Mehmed II, known as Mehmed the Conqueror, was an Ottoman Sultan who lived between 1432 and 1481.
This Turkish drama is inspired by the story of Mehmed the Conqueror and explores his life towards the success. Upon the death of his father, Sultan Mehmed accedes to the throne in 1451. He always dreams about conquering Constantinople (modern day Istanbul). However, this will not be so easy because the city was surrounded many times before but nobody managed to conquer it.
Sultan Mehmed has to fight not only against Eastern Roman Empire and the Christian world but also against his opponents like Çandarlı Halil Paşa within the Ottoman Empire. He does not give up and eventually, conquers the impossible city Constantinople after 51 days of surrounding.
