I've this doubt about the Ottoman expansion through the Balkans, specifically of the farthest achieved boundary of the Empire, i.e. when the more vast of the outside territory was claimed under Ottoman rule.
Did Ottomans take possession all over the Balkans? Did they reach Venetian borders? Took they all Dalmatian coast and isles? Did they conquer all of Hungary? Is it true that only remote islands remained out of conquest in what is Greece?
I'd really appreciate If someone could write me which were the Ottoman limits when they were capable of holding the more of foreign lands, how was the treat with the vicinity, how managed the surrounding nations not to fell under Ottoman might.
Also, how was this conquest? was it favorable to those ones submitted? Were they happy under new rule? Were there many uprisings? In the case of those people who belonged to the Austrohungarian alliance, where they more happy with Ottomans than with their old lords? How was possible to submit so many lands with contingent coming from a limited land such as Turkey? From where did they get the people to set and rule foreigners of so many other nations?
That would be more or less the point I'm trying to make here, and please, forgive me for asking much, I just want to clarify this doubts. I have seen maps but these differ one from another so I would clearly rely better in (a) more educated person(s) who know(s) about this well.
Thanks in advance, and nice forum !
