Politics and world events

First Turkish siege of Vienna

  • April 10th : The Ottoman Sultan Suleyman I sets off with a large force from Constantinople towards Vienna . On the way through Southeast Europe, his army grew more and more through the connection of numerous garrisons. Hungarian fighters also join him. The advance through Hungary is slowed down as there is no road network and heavy rains have softened the ground. In September the harbingers of this army appeared in the vicinity of Vienna, a force of around 20,000 Akıncı . This unpaid light cavalry usually precedes the regular army by plundering, slaving, raping and murdering and is supposed to cripple the will of the population to resist.
  • A large number of Viennese citizens fled from September 17th , including seven out of twelve members of the city council. Only mayor Wolfgang Treu , city judge Pernfuß and three other city councilors remain. Of the more than 3,500 armed citizens of the city militia, only 300 to 400 remain. Many refugees fall into the hands of the Akıncı on their way to supposedly safe territory.

  • On September 23, the Ottomans came into sight of the city, which was completely enclosed until September 27 . Their armed force comprises around 150,000 people, some of whom are part of the entourage. The fighting part of the army includes around 80,000 Ottoman soldiers and 15,000 to 18,000 soldiers from the Ottoman vassal states of Moldova and Serbia. The Grand Vizier Makbul Ibrahim Pasha is responsible for the tactical management of the siege .
  • September 27th : The first siege of Vienna by the Ottomans under Suleyman I begins as the climax of the First Austrian Turkish War . It ends on October 14th with the departure of the besiegers.

The law in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania is codified for the first time with the first Lithuanian Statute . The codification does not take place in the Lithuanian language , which at that time does not yet have a fully valid status as a written language, but in so-called Ruthenian , an East Slavic language that is used as a written language in Lithuania.
