    Byzantine Empire is doomed as soon as the Turks crossed Gallipoli and settled in Rümelia. They should've abandoned the city and moved to Adrianople as soon as they lost control of Asia Minor.

    As one of your Turkish subscribers I'm disappointed that you guys cannot be impartial about history. This video basically shows Turks as evildoers. You've even drawn devil horns on the sultan. Do you just want to alienate people? Because this video is a great example of how to alienate people.

    They weren't called Ottomans, they were called Seljuk Turks back then. And how ironic that you didn't mention that the city fell because a crypto-Jewish community called the Donmeh opened the gates, which led to the eradication and enslavement of the natives...

    And no the population of constantinapole didn't became slaves. Actually Mehmet the 2nd had a public talk about how everyone in the city was free to practice their culture and religion.
    It's better to add that most citizens saw being around muslims less irritating than idea of catholic help.

    Well it's the fate of all European cities soon enough and murica won't survive as long as byzantine since at the very moment I'm writing this their moving ever faster to self destruction.

    Loukas Notaras "I would rather see a Turkish turban in the midst of the City (i.e., Constantinople) than the Latin mitre" ; The Byzantines simply preferred for Muslims to rule than Catholic Christians! It was a Byzantine coup over their emperor; There were 5 Greek Christian Orthodox Phalange fighting on the side of the Muslims, etc...

    -If the wall is breached, Constantinople will fall.
    -Even if it IS breached it would take a number beyond reckoning. Thousands to storm the keep.
    -TENS of thousands
    -But Sultan there IS no such force!

    Stop saying these hated words towards the sultan and triple check your resource saying that sultan did violence and disrespected the women and all of those hateful things that Islam forbids .In Islamic war you can't hurt women ,child, old men even if they attack you. You can't cut tree without purpose ,Islam has set strict set of rules for warfare. who are you "islamophobic"

    Miss information : the sultan seige the city on the news of the minorities were being oppressed. About the slaughter, it wasnt right at all, in fact they were given a choice to keep their believes or convert, its all freedom. The true version as far as i know and not being biased or anything is that the citizen and also soldier basically all residents were given the chance to survive, also if they want to stay they also allowed, most of them convert but those who dont convert was still okay, no such murderous act or anything. Now about the free looting, im not sure its entirely true but, it shouldnt be free for all to take, only military asset and or something from the empire not the citizen goods or such.
    This is also different during the fall of europe where the muslim was forced to convert or killed, im sure of it, and if i made mistake please enlighten me. Idk where u got the info, but at least my base statement is trustworthy

    The Defenders wrote that they filled the light cannons with small pellets and it was deadly against the Ottomans- like early shotguns. They also rolled barrels filled with explosives with a delayed fuse to destroy Ottoman Siege Towers. The Ottomans refused to leave any dead outside of the walls so if one fell two more ran up to take the body away and if they died then more and more would go get them.
