16917RE: [S-R] Extent of Ottoman Empire in Upper Hungary (Slovakia)
- May 6, 2007The Ottoman Empire extended over much of Hungary for 150 years or so, but
there were continuous wars that constantly shifted the borders. Read
Gardonyi's Eclipse of the Crescent Moon about the attack on the fortress at
Eger when the Turks tried to extend their dominion. Between 50,000 and
200,000 Turks (estimates vary) were defeated by 2000 defenders at Eger. It
is a very exciting tale based on history. But 30 years later the Turks
returned and Eger finally fell. At the height of the Ottoman Empire, Eger
was included, near its northernmost border.

Have you seen Karel Plicka's photograph of women in
Levice - they look totally oriental - maybe it was the
earlier incursion of Tatars that casued this
However I seem to recall that that area was occupied
by the Turks much longer than a year - more like
But this is only an impression - nice to get more info
on something that is hard to research in English.
thanks to all
