“I’m Mehmed Khan… The second of the Mehmeds. My ancestor is Osmangazi, my father is Murad Khan. I’ve born. They said “He won’t live”. I lived. They said he won’t be sultan. I became… The said he wont take that city, i took!”

Mehmed II (Ottoman Turkish: محمد ثانى‎, Meḥmed-i sānī; Modern Turkish: II. Mehmet Turkish pronunciation: [ˈikind͡ʒi meh.met]; 30 March 1432 – 3 May 1481), commonly known as Mehmed the Conqueror (Turkish: Fatih Sultan Mehmet), was an Ottoman Sultan who ruled first for a short time from August 1444 to September 1446, and later from February 1451 to May 1481. At the age of 21, he conquered Constantinople (modern-day Istanbul) and brought an end to the Eastern Roman Empire. Mehmed continued his conquests in Anatolia with its reunification and in Southeast Europe as far west as Bosnia. Mehmed is considered a hero in modern-day Turkey and parts of the wider Muslim world. Among other things, Istanbul’s Fatih district, Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge and Fatih Mosque are named after him.

It is narrated that Prophet Muhammad said that: 

“Verily you shall conquer Constantinople. What a wonderful leader will he be, and what a wonderful army will that army be!”

It is not the first time Fatih’s story become a tv series, in 2013 Kanal D announced Fatih series and Mehmet Akif Alakurt was starring, but it couldn’t hit the ratings so it was finished after six months. So this time the broadcasting channel goes down hard and makes sure that the series will hit the prime time.
