Entering the world stage at 1299 as a small polity at the periphery of the collapsing Seljuk Empire, Ottomans have built and empire that spanned over three continents dominating world history for more than 500 years. This lecture will explore the new world order conditions in the turbulent 13th century that gave birth to the Ottoman Empire and internal dynamics and values that underpinned their success as a destined world super power.
