Casualties and Losses



The Ottoman Wars began in 1571 as a border conflict between the Holy Roman Empire and the Ottoman Empire. However, in the early 1580s the European powers sensed a weakness in the Ottomans and formed the Christian League (named to not offend the Protestant monarchs). The Ottoman Wars are thought of as the Tenth Crusade and ended in victory for the Christians, the Ottomans were unable to mount a counter-attack and the countries Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Bosnia were re-established, along with the Crusader States.
