Muhammad I died in 1118 and was succeeded by Mahmud II, although after Muhammad's death Sanjar was clearly the chief power in the Seljuk realms.

The Seljuk Turks (Turkish: Selçuk; Arabic: سلجوق Saljūq, السلاجقة al-Salājiqa; Persian: سلجوقيان Saljūqiyān; also Seldjuk, Seldjuq, Seljuq) were a major branch of the Oghuz Turks and a dynasty that occupied parts of Central Asia and the Middle East from the 11th to 14th centuries.
The Seljuk Turks are regarded as the ancestors of the Western Turks, the present-day inhabitants of Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan.
The Seljuk Turks and their descendants, the Ottoman Turks, played a major role in medieval history by creating a barrier to Europe against the Mongol invaders from the East, defending the Islamic world against Crusaders from the West, and conquering the Byzantine Empire.

 THE TURKS IN THE HISTORY
Seljuk control in Anatolia was then limited to a region on the central plateau, flanked in the west by Byzantine territory and in the east by Lesser Armenia and the crusader state of Edessa.
The millets, from the time of Mehmed II on, were headed by clergymen whom the sultans confirmed as civil heads of their communities: the Greek Orthodox and Armenian millets under their respective patriarchs in Istanbul, the Jewish millet under the grand rabbi of the same city.
The great merchants who participated in the flourishing inter- national trade-with the East via Egypt or Syria, with the Black Sea regions, and with the Italian city-states and western Europe-were often individually powerful and well connected with officials of high rank; such merchants were big investors, lenders, and accumulators of capital.

The Seljuks helped the Samanids in their struggle against the Western Qarakhanids, but the Samanid capital Bukhara fell and the Samanid lands were overrun by the Qarakhanids and Gaznavids.
Two years later, 20.000 Seljuk light riders crushed a large Gaznawid army composed of 300 war elephants and 50.000 troops (mainly heavy cavalries and infantries) at the Battle of Dandanaqan; the battle was won with the hit-and-run attacks of the Seljuks.
The Seljuks withdrew to the desert, the Gaznawids followed them, but their forces were left without food and water, and the weakened Gaznawids broke in a single charge.

The factional strife that marked the second reign of Mustafa, Osman's uncle and successor, is further evidence that a prince's mother was clearly identified with her son in the competition for the throne in the early decades of the seventeenth century.
According to the late­fifteenth­century historian Nesri, when the Seljuk sultan Alaeddin sent Osman the regalia of the sultanate, symbols of his independent sovereignty, a ceremonial assembly was held; as the Seljuk sovereign's musicians began to play, Osman's mother instructed her son to stand in respect.
The responsibilities of Nurbanu Sultan toward her son Murad III and Safiye Sultan toward Mehmed III were particularly great because of the presence of the new sultans' younger brothers in the capital.

 Ataman Hotel - Great Mosque and Hospital of Divriği
The complex, built on south-west slope of the citadel mound, comprises the Great Mosque, the Hospital attached to it on the south, and the Tomb on the northwest side of the Hospital.
The mosque was constructed during the reign of the Seljuk Sultan Alâeddin Keykubad I by the order of the Mengücek prince Ahmed Şah whereas the construction of the Hospital was begun by the order of Turan Melek Şah, the daughter of Fahreddin Behramşah, both built in 1228-29 by the architect Hürremşah of Ahlat.
The complex of the Great Mosque and Hospital, with its five artist inscriptions, is a very important example amongst the Seljuk monuments, which usually bear only one or two inscriptions indicating the names of the artists.

 Seljuk and Ottoman Silver Coins of Balad (Ancient Coins of Miletos)
The Greek city of Miletus, once “the ornament of Ionia,” was incorporated into the Roman empire’s province of Asia in 133 BC, and with the division of the empire into eastern and western halves it came under the dominion of the Byzantine (Eastern Roman) empire during the Middle Ages.
But Timur’s hegemony over western Anatolia was short-lived, and Bayezid’s son, Mehmed Çelebi, proclaimed himself sultan Mehmed I in 1413 and attempted to recover the territory that had been lost to Timur.
These silver akçes of Mehmed I are probably the last coins ever minted at the site that had once been Miletus, a birthplace of coinage two thousand years before.

Mehmed II was the second great sultan to emerge after the defeat of Ankara.
Mehmed was a great administrator, a ruler who reigned unchallenged for three decades, a capable diplomat and a master strategist who also rode with his men and acted as a general - indeed, a general without peer in his age.
Despite his fearsome reputation as a general, or perhaps because of it, Mehmed fought very few battles during his reign, which was renowned in Ottoman history as being an island of calm and prosperity, a time in which the engorged empire could assimilate its conquests and plant the basis of its future glory.
