 Station Information - Selim II
Selim II Selim II (1524 - December 12, 1574), the sultan of the Ottoman Empire, was a son of Suleiman I and his favourite Roxelana, and succeeded his father in 1566 and ruled till his death.
Fortunately for the country, an able grand vizier, Mahommed Sokolli, was at the head of affairs, and two years after Selim's accession succeeded in concluding at Constantinople an honourable treaty with the emperor Maximilian II, whereby the emperor agreed to pay to Turkey an annual "present" of 30,000 ducats (February 17, 1568).
Little can be said of this degenerate son of Suleiman, who during the eight years of his reign never girded on the sword of Osman, and preferred the clashing of wine-goblets to the shock of arms, save that with the dissolute tastes of his mother, Hurrem (Aleksandra Lisowska), he had not inherited her ferocity.

 Selim I
Selim I (1465 – September 22, 1520; also known as "the Grim", nicknamed Yavuz, 'the Brave' in Turkish) was the sultan of the Ottoman Empire from 1512 to 1520.
The campaign which followed was a triumph for Selim, whose firmness and courage overcame the pusillanimity and insubordination of the Janissaries, the household troops of the Ottoman dynasty.
After Selim became master of the holy cities of Islam and captured Egypt along with the person of Al-Mutawakkil III, the last Caliph of the Abbasid dynasty who resided there, Selim induced him to formally surrender the title of caliph as well as its outward emblems, the sword and the mantle of the prophet.

Selim determined on war with Persia, where the heresy was the prevalent religion, and in order that the Shi'ites in Turkey should give no trouble during the war " measures were taken," as the Turkish historian states, which may be explained as the reader desires, and which proved fully efficacious.
The campaign which followed was a triumph for Selim, whose firmness and courage overcame the pusillanimity and insubordination of the Janissaries.
Selim profited by the respite to abolish the military tenure of fiefs; he introduced salutary reforms into the administration, especially in the fiscal department, sought by well-considered plans to extend the spread of education, and engaged foreign officers as instructors, by whom a small corps of new troops called nizam-i-jedid were collected and drilled.

Mehmed's son and successor, Bayazid II, shifted the Empire's military focus from Christian Europe to the fellow Islamic empires in Egypt and Persia, thus eroding much of the gazi warrior foundations of waging war only on non-Muslims, on which the Ottoman Empire was built.
Selim embarked on a fierce campaign against the Safavids, and he soon extended his animosity to the Mamluks as well.
Selim felt he needed to wage war with the Safavids not only because of their religious differences, but also because of the constant military threat of having an expansionist state on the Ottoman Empire's eastern frontier.
