Background

Osman Gazi, also known as Osman I, was the leader of the Ottoman Turks and the founder of the dynasty that established and ruled the Ottoman Empire. After the death of his father in 1281, at which time Osman was just 23 years old, he took up the leadership of the Kayi Clan. Soon after, mercenaries from all over the Islamic world began streaming into his realm to join the fight against the Orthodox Empire. In 1301, Osman successfully defeated a large Byzantine force and began putting pressure on Byzantine-controlled areas. This alarmed the Byzantines, who quickly fled the Anatolian countryside. Byzantium's leaders were determined to prevent Osman from crossing into Europe and attempted to check his westward expansion. Osman continued to press on, however, and soon captured the Byzantine city of Ephesus. This brought another massive, diverse influx of migrants, warriors, and adventurers into Ottoman territory. Osman was both a skilled commander and an able administrator. He expanded his realm through policies of tolerance and cooperation with Greek Christians. The Greeks welcomed the order, stability, and security that Osman's rule brought, which came at a time when the central administration in Constantinople was slowly falling into disarray. Free from government interference, Greeks and Turks began to marry and create families, and eventually, a large number of Christians adopted the Muslim faith. Religious tolerance became the defining characteristic of the Ottoman Empire for the next 600 years.
