Publisher's Summary

Suleiman the Magnificent, the 10th sultan of the Ottoman Empire, may be an unfamiliar figure to many today. But in the 16th century, his military campaigns played a huge role in the shifting face of European politics. He was a man in search of power. His quest carried him not only to daring military exploits in Europe and Asia, but also through the intricate web of the Ottoman court, where deceit, scheming, and treachery abounded.  

From this audiobook, you'll learn about:

  • The makings of a sultan
  • A rising power
  • The besieged island
  • Court life, consorts, and counsellors
  • King Ferdinand and Vienna
  • To the edges of the map
  • The end of an Era
  • And much more

This audiobook describes his life, from his rivalry with the Hapsburg brothers, Charles and Ferdinand, to his doomed friendship with his grand vizier, Ibrahim, and his relationship with the indomitable Roxelana. Here you will find accounts of the battles he fought, the heroics and blunders of his enemies, and his relentless progress toward his colossal ambitions.
