oguztolga ,

In your last comment your wrote about :

"the inventions and distortions of the western historians of the 19th century". I asked you about details . And here I have them :

"German Historian Hieronymus Wolf wrote a book about the fall of Istanbul in 1557 """"" Corpus Historiae Byzantinæ """"" ". brits and Frenches created a Byzantion Empire in 1821 with this book."

Really ? First you write about 19th century 'distortions' and now you find them in the 16th century. So finally what century are you going to blame ? I understand your propensity to plagiarism and lies . Every Turk loves it. But why do you imagine we are all such idiots as to believe them ?

For the time being I leave aside the hurting fact that you have no idea either what "Corpus historiae Byzantinae" means or contains and that the term "Istanbul" was established only with the notorious Turkish Postal Service Law of 28 March 1930 and so according to your incoherent ravings Wolf must have been a futurologist, not a historian. How could he ever mention the fall of a non-existing city ?
