Atleast mehmed II 's humanity should be atleast 2 or 3 tbh, he is actually a benevolent ruler in his era. He forbids his army to loot and pillage constantinople but I do think that he has another reasons for it. But there is another fact that orthodox christians were able to live peacefully side by side with muslims. I don't really know much about it but I'm offended a little bit on mehmed II 's humanity

Mehmed II strength isn't tactics, it's logistics able to muster and sustain the siege. On the siege itself they have to wait for cannons to break Roman walls, other attempts to scale or bypass the walls were defeated. They had up to 10 to 1 manpower advantage. Despite that they still lost roughly equal or more numbers to the defenders.

Anatolia and Thracia was and still rough terrain to move around, despite seljuks superior mobility it wasn't easy moving food and arms. Although by the time of siege Byzantines have lost capacity to do guerilla warfare (4th Crusade basically destroyed Byzantines hold on Anatolian and Thracian despots making it easy to seljuks overwhelming them one by one, also good old fashioned religious dispute delayed and reduced Catholics assistance)

Mehmed II wasn't the best at warfare is a bit harsh, isn't it? He's not the greatest genius but he was pretty up there.

"Absolutism"? What is that mean here? The author said he was rather tolerant to European's culture, so I don't think it's being racist, but what then?

@agtra Which one was that? It's been a while since I last read about Al-Fatih so I don't remember too much details.

So Mehmed only won because he zerg rushed the Byzantines

without first praying

Art thou implying implications?
Thou libertine anglican heretic, the redeeming Will is upon your lands and peoples of Amorah would sing of His mercy if they saw what flagellation shall befall you

@BCS oh shit, that's a typo. Should be a hundred thousand. Stupid Japanese numbers, having units every 10,000

Edit: Fixed.

One could say that his attack on Constantinople succeeded mostly due to his relatively large army of ten thousand.

Thanks for the chapter!

@reu talking in the name of the Lord without first praying is considered heresy, so the anti-anti-pope has excommunicated you

So Teuton is the Main Heroine?

@agtra Caliphs in general didn't treat their blood too kindly, but given the schisms that happened when they did, that's understandable.
That is why the Lord demands you only take one wife, saracens.
