The Ottoman Empire (Ottoman Turkish: دولتْ علیّه عثمانیّه Devlet-i Âliye-yi Osmâniyye,[2] Modern Turkish: Osmanlı İmparatorluğu or Osmanlı Devleti), was an empire that lasted from 1299–1923. It was succeeded by the Republic of Turkey in 1923.

At the height of its power (16th–17th century), it controlled much of Southeastern Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa.
