In 1451, after receiving the news of his father’s death, Mehmed departs from Manisa to Edirne, to Payitaht with one dream in his mind…conquering Constantinople. However, hard and formidable obstacles wait for him in this quest.The ancient city has been besieged many times over the centuries; but neither the cannons were able to open a single hole in the strong walls, nor the gigantic chain of the Golden Horn had given passage to enemy ships. Furthermore, if Mehmed wants to take the city, he must fight not only against the Byzantine Empire and the Christian world behind it, but also against his biggest opposition in the state, the mighty vizier Chandelier Halil Pasha. This great Sultan, far ahead of his age, moves beyond any obstacle with his brilliant mind, military and strategic genius, and his faith in victory. 2 years after his ascension to the throne, he besieges the city and after 53 days of siege he does the “impossible” and conquers Constantinople. By realizing his biggest dream he puts his stamp on history. After that day, Sultan Mehmed Khan, known as Fatih, broke through a new era and laid the foundations of a great World Empire which would rule the continents for centuries.
