SIEGE OF BEL GRADE
was a military blockade of Belgrade that occurred in July 1456. After the fall of Constantinople in 1453, the Ottoman Sultan Mehmed the Conqueror rallied his resources to conquer Smederevo, the mediaeval capital of Serbia and Belgrade, the main Hungarian fortress in the South, and thus subjugate the Kingdom of Hungary. John or Janos Hunyadi, the Count of Temes and captain general of Hungary, who had fought many battles

against the Turks in the previous two decades, prepared the defenses of the fortress together with the soldiers sent by Serbian despot Dyurady Brankovic. The siege escalated into a major battle, during which Hunyadi led a sudden counter attack that overran the Ottoman camp, ultimately compelling the wounded Mehmed II to lift the siege and retreat. The battle

had significant consequences, as it stabilized the southern frontiers of the Kingdom of Hungary for more than half a century and thus, together with the heroic resistance from Serbian people in the south, considerably delayed the Ottoman advance in Europe. The series will be a saga of bravery, love, perseverance, the fight for freedom, and the eventual victory over forces that threatened not only Balkans but the rest of Europe.

    1. It is the opposite for me, there are less and less series that I want to watch as the woke trend has killed historical genre.
