Storyline

At the age of 26, when his reign began, Sultan Süleyman sought to build an empire more powerful than Alexander the Great and to render the Ottomans invincible. Throughout his 46-year reign, his fame as the greatest warrior and ruler of his age spreads both to the East and West. With his companion Pargali Ibrahim, Süleyman achieves great victories, and makes his name known in the Muslim World. Süleyman called Ibrahim his brother, friend and advisor. The television series shows Süleyman's consolidation of his power: Pargali Ibrahim being grand minister of state, reinforcing the rule of law throughout the empire, meeting foreign diplomats, and preparing for military campaigns, all set against the backdrop of the tension between Christian Europe and the Ottoman Empire. The series also focuses on the relationships among the members of the imperial household, especially romantic entanglements and rivalries. The animosity between Hürrem Sultan and Mahidevran Sultan, mother of the Sultan's ... Written by ahmetkozan

spectacular series
10 March 2019 | by basetobaseSee all my reviews

I am disappointed Netflix did not renew or continue. While using subtitles in English this did not spoil for one second the opulence of this series , well written well acted and the sets were splendid. I would love to see this series fully (since Netflix did not have all seasons) or have the producers have DVD's available with subtitles for the US for sale . A well done Docusoapdrama which I would recommend to others which in fact I did along with Dirilis Etugral .
