It marks the end of Ottoman control in much of Central Europe, with their first major territorial losses after centuries of expansion, and established the Habsburg Monarchy as the dominant power in the region.Feraizcizâde Mehmed Said, died 1836 in Bursa, is a famous historian of the XIX.th century.
