Long neglected in world history, the Ottoman Empire was a hub of flourishing intellectual fervor, geopolitical power, and enlightened pluralistic rule. At the helm was the omnipotent Sultan Selim I (1470-1520), who—aided by his extraordinarily gifted mother, Gülbahar—propelled the empire onto the world stage.
