This chapter retraces the shared history between the Ottoman Empire and Europe. Focusing on the Ottoman conquest in Europe, the chapter describes the events by which the history of Europe became indistinguishable from that of its relationship, whether good or bad, with the principal Muslim power of the time. It first discusses the presence of Turks and Muslims in Europe before the Ottoman expansion, before turning to the origins of the Ottomans, who had emerged from one of the many small Turkoman principalities that had formed on the Aegean, Mediterranean, and Pontic periphery of the Seljuk sultanate of Konya. The chapter then chronicles the first Ottoman ventures into Europe, which eventually culminated in a series of conquests in the continent.
