Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Austro-Turkish War (1663-1664) or fourth Austro-Turkish War was a short war between the Habsburg Monarchy and the Ottoman Empire. The Habsburg army under Raimondo Montecuccoli succeeded to halt the Ottoman army on its way to Vienna in the Battle of Saint Gotthard. Despite this Ottoman defeat, the war ended with the favourable Peace of Vasv r. The cause of this war was the invasion of Poland in 1658, by Prince George R k czy II of Transylvania without the permission of the Porte. Transylvania had after the Battle of Mohacs in 1526 recognized Ottoman suzerainty and paid a tribute to the Porte and were given political and religious autonomy in return. On hearing about R k czy's unauthorized war, the Ottomans declared war on their vassal. It was not long before Grand Vizier K pr l Mehmed Pasha (Vizier 1656-1661) defeated R k czy and conquered Transylvania. The new Transylvanian prince, J nos Kem ny, fled to Vienna, seeking Austrian support.show more
