(1447-1512), sultan of Turkey, was the son of Mahommed II., whom he succeeded in 1481, but only after gaining over the janissaries by a large donative, which henceforth became for centuries the invariable prerogative of that undisciplined body on the accession of a new sultan.
The comparative inactivity of Bayezid in the dfrection of Europe was partly due to preoccupation elsewhere.
The forces destined to maintain his authority in Asia had been entrusted by Bayezid to his three sons, Ahmed, Corcud and Selim; and the sultans declining years were embittered by their revolts and rivalry.

Jem was prevented from reaching Istanbul and Bayezid’s accession to throne was secured in May 1481; Jem then arrived in Bursa, proclaimed himself Sultan and started to mint coins in his own name.
Jem died in 1495, and Bayezid continued his pacific and tolerant approach until his death in 1512: he was praised as a just ruler and described as ‘the Law-Abiding’.
Bayezid won military prestige during his 1496-8 Moldavian expedition against the Poles for influence over Moldavia, and pursued an exhausting war with the Mamluks which was essentially a struggle for control over the Turcoman tribes inhabiting the frontier region between their two empires.

Whereas Bayezid had been put on the throne by the Janissaries despite his pacific nature and carried out military activities with reluctance, Selim I (ruled 1512–20) shared their desire to return to Mehmed II's aggressive policy of conquest.
