In 1453, the Ottomans captured Constantinople which really made them the most powerful group in the area.  Ardoun this time as well they reached the peak of their powers beginning to control all of the Mediterranean Sea under the leadership of Suleiman.

At the height of their powers, they controlled southeastern Europe all the way to what we know as the city of Vienna and all of the Grecian peninsula and all of what we currently label Iraq and Iran as well as farther south all the way around the Red Sea and then farther west to Egypt and a slive of North Africa, strengthened by their naval control of the Mediterranean Sea.
