Supported by the British via sea, they faced for years the French-Neapolitan armies and were engaged in real battles "on a grand scale", such as the one they won at Maida.
At the end they were defeated, but Murat never obtained peace and support from his subjects: as we already said when talking of Ferdinand IV, when Murat landed at Pizzo and attempted to reconquer the kingdom in 1815 was shot by local peasants, then arrested, processed and condemned to death.

Evliya Çelebi relates how, on his reception into the presence of Murad IV in 1635, he performed works in the varsağı, segah, may and bestenigar makams (modes) with words by Murat IV and music by Dervish Ömer, a member of the Gülşeni sect and Evliya Çelebi's former teacher of music.
In the years preceding his accession to the throne, Selim III had taken an active interest in literature, music and history, but although, as Sultan, he was obviously greatly influenced by Western architecture, the same can not be said for music.
That the name of Murad IV is historically remembered as a cruel ruler who shed much blood, that Selim III's brings to mind social reform, or that Mehmed VI's historical role is still the subject of a debate does not enter the spirit of these CD's.

 "O Homines ad servitutem paratos!": Bajazet and the scandal of slave rule Romanic Review - Find Articles
As a final point of comparison, the figure cut by Louis XIV bore some resemblance in the French mindset to that occupied by Murat IV in its Ottoman counterpart, namely as a king whose advent promised a return to the glories of yore after a particularly troubled phase in the state's recent past.
The critical and polemical literature of the period often depicted Louis XIV as a Turk and featured titles like, "The Koran of Louis XIV" and "The Most Christian Turk."15 The parallel was not entirely inappropriate given Louis XIV's covert support for the Ottoman occupation of Central and Eastern Europe.
At this point we might ask why Racine chose Murat IV as opposed to Suleyman the Conqueror to represent the legitimate, absolute ruler of the Ottoman empire.
