Sulayman I - also known as Sulayman the Magnificent was the ruler of the Ottoman Empire reigning from 1520 to 1566 AD. He was the tenth and the longest-reigning sultan of the Ottoman Empire. Under his administration, the Ottoman state ruled over at least 25 million people.
Today, on 29th August in the year 1526, the Battle of Mohacs took place between the Ottoman Empire, led by Sulayman the Magnificent and the forces of the Kingdom of Hungary, led by Louis II. It was regarded as one of the most consequential battles in Central European history. In its wake, Hungarian resistance collapsed, and the Ottoman Empire became the leading power in Central Europe.
The Ottoman victory led to the partition of Hungary for several centuries. Further, the death of Louis II as he fled the battle marked the end of the Jagiellonian dynasty in Hungary and Bohemia, whose dynastic claims passed to the House of Habsburg. The Battle of Mohacs marked the end of the Middle Ages in Hungary.
