Hi all. How do you as the Ottomans convert from Sunni to Orthodox and what would the benefits for doing this be? It's hard for me to see if there are any benefits, as it would be hard to have to convert every single province you would take when expanding eastwards. Showing 1 - 4 of 4 comments. The benefits are mostly that Christians won't hate you so much and you'll be able to ally them more easily.
Mechanically, the Sunni religion is extremely good, so you aren't losing much in that regard. The ottomans really don't have to convert their provinces as their first national idea gives them extremely high tolerance. Heck, get humanist ideas and you won't even lose any religious unity for having heathens in your nation.
As for how. The only limitation is that you have to do this while you still have a Christian majority i. Last edited by Deep Hurting ; 8 Mar, am. Ah alright. Thanks for the answer. Last edited by shoki ; 8 Mar, am. I did opposite with Muscovy, that was my first religious group change. It would be fun to see Sunni Russia and Ortodox Ottomans in one game.
I don't know how Austria's opinion will change. They always rival Sunni Ottomans. Deep Hurting's guide is very good. Per page: 15 30 Date Posted: 8 Mar, am. Posts: 4.

However converting the provences will be a hassle. If you can convert the provences and have rights of man, I'd go for coptic. Last edited by bokassa ; 20 Nov, am.

I would do a regular sunni Ottoman run to experience the new government and stuff and from then on always go coptic because it is just more efficient.

Azazel View Profile View Posts. I play Ottomans a lot and when Ottoblobbing I wouldn't do it with any other religion than Coptic. If only there was an easy way to get Ottomans to convert to Sikh.
On a side note converting to Coptic is even easier in 1. Originally posted by BlaquesJacques :. Originally posted by BlitzNexus :. Per page: 15 30 Date Posted: 20 Nov, am. Posts: Discussions Rules and Guidelines.

Some geospatial data on this website is provided by geonames.The Ottomansat their start, are a Sunni Turkish monarchy under the ottoman government system, starting out in the Karadeniz area, Anatolia region, Near East subcontinent of the Europe continent. The monarchy emerges from Orthodox Byzantium inwith cores, bordering fellow Sunni Germiyan and Angora south and Candar east, Orthodox Byzantium west and the waters of the Black Sea Mediterranean region north.
Eventually, the multi-continent spanning empire throughout Eastern Europe, Near East Asia and Africa will be isolated with only its capital province of Constantinople and gets annexed by Sunni Turkey on November 1,losing cores and never appears on-map again.
The Ottomans are a Turkish Empire led by the Osmanli dynasty. The Ottomans are located in Anatolia along with the other Turkish Beyliks.
The Ottomans are playable from January 1st, to November 1st, Eventually, the Ottomans went on to become the dominant Turkish Beylik. After several wars with the Byzantine Empirethe Ottomans under Mehmed the Conqueror, captured the capital, Constantinople. The Ottomans start really strong at this point. They are surrounded by weaker neighbors and have lots of cores on them. They have great missions. Your biggest problem in the early game will be man power and war exhaustion because you will be at war constantly.
Your biggest problem latter on is tech. You start with the Anatolian tech so you will have an advantage on your Muslim counterparts, but the more game goes on, the more the western countries will start to outpace you. Good allies are the Great HordeTunisiaand Jalayirids once you free up diplomatic relationship slots by integrating vassals. I would recommend turning Bosnia into a march instead of integrating.
This allows you to feed them land and they will act as a buffer from invading western nations. You should start by eating up your Anatolian cores before they can ally with The Mamluks or the Timurids. After you are done with Anatolia your intention should turn to the Balkans. You can take the mission to take Constantinople to take out the Byzantines.
You can take the Venetian provinces in Greece just make sure you build up your navy first. In fact you can win your first war with Venice without a naval engagement.The Fall of Constantinople occurred on May 29,after a siege which began on April 6.
The battle was part of the Byzantine-Ottoman Wars Ascending to the Ottoman throne inMehmed II began making preparations to reduce the Byzantine capital of Constantinople. Though the seat of Byzantine power for over a millennium, the empire had badly eroded after the city's capture in during the Fourth Crusade. Reduced to the area around the city as well as a large part of the Peloponnese in Greece, the Empire was led by Constantine XI.
Already possessing a fortress on the Asian side of the Bosporus, Anadolu Hisari, Mehmed began construction of one on the European shore known as Rumeli Hisari. Effectively taking control of the strait, Mehmed was able to cut off Constantinople from the Black Sea and any potential aid that might be received from the Genoese colonies in the region. Despite centuries of animosity between the Orthodox and Roman churches, Nicholas agreed to seek help in the West.
This was largely fruitless as many of the Western nations were engaged in their own conflicts and could not spare men or money to aid Constantinople. Though no large-scale help was forthcoming, smaller groups of independent soldiers did come to the city's aid.
Among these were professional soldiers under the command of Giovanni Giustiniani. Working to improve Constantinople's defenses, Constantine ensured that the massive Theodosian Walls were repaired and that the walls in the northern Blachernae district were strengthened.
To prevent a naval attack against the Golden Horn walls, he directed that a large chain be stretched across the mouth of the harbor to block Ottoman ships from entering. Short on men, Constantine directed that the bulk of his forces defend the Theodosian Walls as he lacked the troops to man all of the city's defenses.
Approaching the city with 80, men, Mehmed was supported by a large fleet in the Sea of Marmara. In addition, he possessed a large cannon made by the founder Orban as well as several smaller guns.
The lead elements of the Ottoman army arrived outside Constantinople on April 1,and began making camp the next day. On April 5, Mehmed arrived with the last of his men and began making preparations for laying siege to the city. While Mehmed tightened the noose around Constantinople, elements of his army swept through the region capturing minor Byzantine outposts.
Emplacing his large cannon, he began battering at the Theodosian Walls, but with little effect. As the gun required three hours to reload, the Byzantines were able to repair the damage caused between shots. On the water, Suleiman Baltoghlu's fleet was unable to penetrate the chain and boom across the Golden Horn.
They were further embarrassed when four Christian ships fought their way into the city on April Desiring to get his fleet into the Golden Horn, Mehmed ordered that several ships be rolled across Galata on greased logs two days later.
Moving around the Genoese colony of Pera, the ships were able to be refloated in the Golden Horn behind the chain.During the period known as the tetrarchy, when you had four emperors ruling, none of them used Rome as their capital.
The senior emperor in the West usually resided in Milan, in northern Italy. The junior emperor generally lived at Antioch in Syria. Major cities were chosen that were closer to frontiers and closer to the resources necessary to battle barbarians and suppress rebels. Learn more about a conservative emperor named Diocletian. Rome increasingly became a ceremonial capital. It was awkwardly placed.
Its importance is due to its political and religious significance. There was always a move to get the capital out of Rome to a better location. This is a transcript from the video series The World of Byzantium. Watch it now, on The Great Courses. Constantine therefore was, in many ways, responding along the lines of what other soldier-emperors had done.
Constantine made a major difference here. There would be no pagan gods. It occupies the European side of the Bosporus, the narrow strait that leads from the Sea of Marmara, which in ancient times they called the Propontis, into the Black Sea. It was a very important commercial center. As a city, it had never been more than 30,—35, strong. Under Constantine, the city was vastly expanded. It eventually came to number perhaps a half-million—some would say a million—by A.
It would be surrounded by a series of walls, some 13 miles in length. It was completely made over as the equivalent of the New Rome. A whole palace complex was constructed. There was an imperial Hippodrome, or stadium.

Constantinople, which later because Islamabad edit: Constantinus decided to make the Greek city of Byzantium the capital of his empire.
We should note that Diocletian had already spent much of his time in Nicomedia, nearby. After the final end of the Byzantine empire the Ottomans used the Greek expression Istanbul which had meant "in the city". European statesmen continued to call it Constantinople until the end of the Ottoman empire.
Ataturk moved the capital of the new Turkish state to Ankara. Islamabad is the name of the new post-British capital of Pakistan.
Constantine did not make Rome the imperial capital. He designated Byzantium, which he redeveloped and renamed Constantinople City of Constantineas his imperial capital. Salem is the capital because a lot of attractions are there so the Government and Excutive Branch decided to make it the capital. Asked in Roman Empire Which place did Constantine make the center of power for the roman empire?
Constantine moved his capital to Byzantium, which was renamed Constantinople. You need to specify what "these" are if you want to make it possible to answer your question. The city that Constantine rebuilt for his new capital was the old city of Byzantium. He rebuilt it and spruced it up and renamed it after himself -- Constantinople. Asked in Istanbul and Constantinople Why did the location of Constantinople make a excellent capital city? He felt that Rome was an unsatisfactory capital.
Rome was too far from the frontiers. Rome could no longer serve as the center of defense for the Byzantine Empire's widely spread frontiers. Constantinople was located at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, and the many sea and overland trade routes linking east and west. Under the Byzantines, this location helped make the city, and some of its citizens, fabulouslt wealthy. It is not quite clear why Constantine decided to move the capital of the eastern part of the Roman Empire from Nicomedia in south-western Turkey.
Initially he considered moving it to Sirmium, in present day Serbia. Then he decided to redevelop the nearby city of Byzantium, make it the capital and rename it Constantinople. One reason might be that Nicomedia was associated with Diocletian, who had unleashed the Great Persecution of the Christians while Constantine supported the Christians. A very likely reason could be propaganda.
