Islamic, Ottoman Empire, Mahmud II, 28 July 1808 - 1 July 1839
Mahmud II was the 30th Sultan of the Ottoman Empire from 1808 until his death in 1839. His reign is recognized for the extensive administrative, military, and fiscal reforms he instituted, including the 1826 abolition of the conservative Janissary corp, and culminating in the Decree of Tanzimat ("reorganization") that was carried out by his sons. Often described as "Peter the Great of Turkey," Mahmud's reforms, political, and social changes, would eventually lead to the birth of the modern Turkish Republic. Mahmud's reign was also marked by nationalist uprisings in Ottoman-ruled Serbia and Greece, leading to significant loss of territory for the Empire following the emergence of an independent Greek state.IS96729.
