Our animated historical documentary series on the Ottoman Empire have covered the battles of Kosovo (http://bit.ly/2JI3F0p), Nicopolis (http://bit.ly/2zUNRre), Ankara (http://bit.ly/2uW7r0D), Varna (http://bit.ly/2JIK2VG), Second Kosovo, Constantinople (http://bit.ly/2uELWlI), Belgrade, Targoviste and Otlukbeli (http://bit.ly/2JOBlcQ), Vaslui, Valea Alba (http://bit.ly/2C9Cm0l), Skanderbeg's rebellion (http://bit.ly/2BYMYgW), Breadfield, Otranto, Krbava and Chaldiran (http://bit.ly/2ONsWNO). One theme that runs through these videos is the practice of fratricide, as for centuries, the Ottoman sultans killed their brothers upon assuming the throne. But why did that happen and how it influenced the Ottoman history? Find out in this video!
