Under Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent (1494-1566), the Ottoman Empire flourished and grew. Turkish forces advanced towards the heart of Europe. In September 1529 they besieged Vienna, the capital of the Habsburg territories. This sent a shockwave throughout Christian Europe, for it appeared as though their advance might be unstoppable. In the end, the Siege of Vienna proved disastrous for the Turks and, for the time being at least, put a stop to Ottoman expansion in Europe.
