🚩 The conquest of the Mamluks by Selim I was the largest military venture any Ottoman Sultan had ever attempted. Egypt proved extremely profitable for the empire as it produced more tax revenue than any other Ottoman territory and supplied about 25% of all food consumed. Meanwhile, Mecca and Medina officially made Selim and his descendants the Caliphs of the entire Muslim world until the early 20th century.

  1. The Safawids were a desaster for Persia as they forced Shia on the whole land. Alhamdulillah in the early 18th century they were shattered by the same Afghan Ghilzai tribal confederation (Hotaki dynasty) that makes up the Taliban leadership today

  2. There are great story,very nice story about great warrior named Budhi Darma expert in martial art from Himalaya,India journey to Nusantara to find place named Batu karu that famous in martial art.This story recorded in Seruling Dewata martial art college 🙏,

  3. Abbas I re-conquered all lost territories of The Safavid Empire and even conquered some Ottomon territory. So Battle of Chaldiran was a waste for Ottomons. The Safavid's achieved their long temr goal of converting people to Shia Islam of the territories they ruled. Today there are millions of Shias in Turkey.

  5. Salim 1:I'm gonna fight 'em off
    A seven nation army couldn't hold me back
    They're gonna rip it off
    Takin' their time right behind my back
    And I'm talkin' to myself at night
    Because I can't forget
    Back and forth through my mind
    Behind a cup of milk

    And the message comin' from my eyes
    Says, "let's invade them all"
