Inhaltsangabe: This is the story of the House of Osman, the Imperial dynasty that ruled the Ottoman Empire for more than seven centuries. During the first four centuries of Ottoman rule, the Sultans lived in the great palace of Topkapi Sarayi, whose gardens and pavilions still grace the Acropolis Hill above the confluence of the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn. This was the setting of the pleasure dome in which the Sultans took their ease when they were not off on campaign, closed off from the outside world in the inner palace of Topkapi Sarayi, the Imperial residence known as Dar-Us Saadet, "the house of felicity". Full of detail and anecdotes, this book brings to life the fading memory of those who lived out their lives in fabled palaces, evoing evoking colourful times in which they lived.

About the Author: John Freely was born in New York in 1926. He joined the U.S. Navy at the age of seventeen and served with a commando unit in Burma and China during the last months of World War II. He has written more than twenty books.

Buchbeschreibung I.B. Tauris & Co. Ltd. Okt 2016, 2016. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - This is the story of the House of Osman, the imperial dynasty that ruled the Ottoman Empire for more than seven centuries, an empire that once stretched from central Europe to North Africa and from Persia to the Adriatic. The capital of this empire was Istanbul, ancient Byzantium, a city that stands astride Europe and Asia on the Bosphorus. And it was in the great palace of Topkapi Sarayi that the sultans of this empire ruled. Inside the Seraglio a classic of Ottoman history takes us behind the gilded doors of the Topkapi and into the heart of the palace: the harem, where the sultan would surround himself with his wives, concubines, eunuchs, pages, dwarfs and mutes and where all the tempestuous events of empire were so often played out. This is the history of a remarkable palace in all its colour and opulence and the story of its influence on a great empire. 277 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9781784535353
