      The feitorias system and a powerfull navy was cleary the key here. In the case of ship building, Portugal was ahead of on the vanguard, due to it's experience in open sea travels, before Spain and other nations of it's time.

      @JoDoSa Very true. Although the portuguese influence was on the downward trend by mid eighteenth century and Britishers were the real rising power, had it not been for the earthquake of 1755 in Lisbon which completely destroyed the city, Portuguese would still have given the other European powers a run for their money and probably would've had significant footprint in Asia and North America.

      The Portuguese were the first Europeans to visit Ayutthaya (Siam) in the early 1500s. They brought with them some dessert recipes which are still used today, and the Thai word for "bread" is derived from Portuguese. Most notably, though, they brought with them some spicy plants from South America, called chili peppers, which caught on rather well.

  • Adam Neuser
    Adam Neuser 2 years ago +309

    *Fun fact:* The Ottoman’s inability to consistently maintain a large fleet of galleons in the Indian Ocean meant that Admiral Sefer Reis would often counter the larger Portuguese galleons by timing his rowed galley attacks against them so that they would be forced to sail against the wind. Thus separating one galleon from the rest of the fleet and defeating them in detail. Often his strategy would prove incredibly effective due to his ability to hug the coastline and evade the open sea.

    • Adam Neuser
      Adam Neuser 2 years ago +69

      Вхламинго Whilst you are correct that the more heavily armed galleons were far more durable in open sea, the idea that galleys were no match for them at all is a common myth. Contrastingly, the tactics employed by galley captains adjusted accordingly to deal with them. The strategy of Admiral Sefer Reis in the Indian Ocean during the 16th century is a testament to this.
      Would recommend reading The Ottoman Age of Exploration by Giancarlo Casale. Specifically page 112 where he elucidates upon this further.

    • Adam Neuser
      Adam Neuser 2 years ago +45

      Вхламинго It is true that overall, large sailing ships proved more effective and durable in the long run, however Ottoman galleys definitely weren't powerless against Venetian galleons during the 16th century, and vice versa. The result of such engagements often varied depending on the amount of ships of either side, distance from the shore, wind strength and direction, and most importantly, the skill of each admiral to take advantage of these factors.

    • Random Guy

    • enonh82
      enonh82 2 years ago +7

      Not true. Countries with long and shallow coastlines used updated versions of galleys as late as the 18th century as far away as the Baltics.

  • Francisco Caixinha
    Francisco Caixinha 2 years ago +47

    We have a story/legend from this siege. It was said that when the part of the wall fell, 5 men jumped to fill the gap and held the line against 300-400 ottoman soldiers. The narrow passage was enough for them to hold the line while being wounded, this ended up giving the rest of the men a morale boost to keep fighting. Another story tells of 2 other artillery soldiers who held part of the wall alone with their spears killing several ottoman soldiers. Fun legends we managed to pull from the writtings of that time.

      - Bento Barbosa;
      - Bartolomeu Corrêa;

    the secret of Portugal's success in the Ottoman confrontation was already having closed-back firearms. These cannons were very powerful. They fired five shots and with another kilometer longer in distance (one detail - 300 years later the Battle of Waterloo still used front loading cannons)

    I was actually expecting the 1509 battle when I saw Diu in the title. Due to the events that led to the battle, the battle itself and the repercusions in the geopolitics of the time after the battle I believe it's a much more interesting and important one in History knowledge.
    Also Afonso de Albuquerque deserves it's own video. The things he did were just wild and wicked!

      I admire them too. Years ago as a loudmouth no back-down youngster. I once helped a Portuguese guy get his old jalopy going after he stopped for me hiking on the road. We pulled away in his VW beetle and it stalled and wouldn't start. My oldman was a avid fan of VW Beetles and we owned six through the years. He was a part-time mechanic and taught me well. I just set the points and we were off. About 4 months later I was in a town away from home and picked up shit with 2 bullies but I pounded them both. Walking back to my friends house I saw them in 2 cars in a group of 8 getting out behind me and charging I laid out the first but the 2nd and 3rd bashed me too much and before the others got too close I gapped it across traffic with all these punks chasing me. Then I saw my Portuguese buddy and a friend driving by in the opposite direction with his eyes wide open looking at me. I couldnt stop because the ones chasing me were just like 7-8 m away. But my buddy turned the vw around and they came by shouting at me to get in. I jumped in and we got away but my buddy decided to turn back. As they were getting back in their cars we stopped by them, My buddy said wait here but I didnt. I got out with them and the 3 of us Pounded the CRAP out of 7 of them. 1 managed to get away with my buddy hot on his tail but he still got away. They helped me because I fixed his car with a screwdriver. We are still friends and even the guy who got away, we became friends later. He ended up marrying my sisters friend. A cute chick which I had an interest in but she had none for me. Good because I married a beautiful girl 4 years later with whom I have 4 children. She and I have till today not once argued about anything. I met her at another Portuguese friend of mine's house. She was his chick's best friend. I became an admirer of the Portuguese because many of them are upright no nonsense helpful friendly true friends and I love their history. I just love their amazing alone against the world history.

    Great video. This is an area of history I know little about. I generally knew that the Portuguese had altered the trade routes of Asia away from the Arab world, and that it was a major reason for the long decline of the Ottoman Empire. This also caused a major shift in wealth to Europe. However, I have no idea of the people involved, the battles, and the process by which it was done.
    It is fascinating. I look forward to more.

    Legend says that the ottoman commander was a eunuch and that when he wrote the letter to Captain Silveira. The Portuguese captain replied. " Most honourable commander Pacha. May you know that behind these walls there are men with balls bigger than your cannonballs and they do not fear those who don't have them".
    There is also the story of a Dutch priest that says that a portuguese soldier who ran out of bullets started shooting his own teeth

      Yes. He was eunuch. "Hadım" is actually his nickname, which means eunuch in Turkish. His full name is Hadım Süleyman Paşa (Suleiman "Eunuch" Pasha)

      This battle is pointed as one of the most important in History because it crushed the economy of Muslim world, because after the fall of Constantinople the turks controlled the spice trade and made them and other muslims states top dogs, but after this battle in 1538 for the first time since 1453, the muslims lost all the trade from India because the Portuguese crushed them there and took over, that did put a halt on Ottomans conquests, there´s a document that claims the Ottomans wanted to push deeper into Europe along with other muslim states but ran out of money because of this Battle, they lost all their income to build armies and sustain campaigns.

    The Portuguese attack of Diu in 1509 wasnt planned.
    That attack occurred when the joint Mamluk-Gujarat navy attack Cochin in 1508 and killed Lourenço de Almeida, the son of Francisco de Almeida the 1st Viceroy of India.
    For 3 days he mourned the death of his son, when he approach his men he said:
    "He who ate the chick must also eat the rooster or pay for it".
    Refusing to accept the orders of his King by giving the position of Viceroy to Afonso de Albuquerque, due to Francisco's hate for him as Afonso was responsible to intercept any Muslim fleet coming out of the Red Sea and die to the fact that Francisco wanted to personally destroy the Mamluk fleet.
    Before moving his navy to Diu he wrote a letter to the captain of Diu, Malik Ayyaz:
    "I the Viceroy say to you, honored Meliqueaz captain of Diu, that I go with my knights to this city of yours, to take the people who were welcomed there, who in Chaul fought my people and killed a man who was called my son, and I come with hope in God of Heaven to take revenge on them and on those who assist them, and if I don't find them I will take your city, to pay for everything, and you, for the help you have done at Chaul. This I tell you, so that you are well aware that I go, as I am now on this island of Bombay, as he will tell you the one who carries this letter."
    P. S. : Don't underestimate the love of a father for his son.

    • DidacusAugustus
      DidacusAugustus 2 years ago +10

      @Ustanik Francisco de Almeida died in 1509 or 1510 so no...
      The Battle of Diu 1509 was a Portuguese counterattack of the Mamluk-Gujarat attack in Chaul in 1508.
      The 2nd siege of Diu (in 1546), Diu was in Portuguese hands since 1536, the first siege was in 1538.
      Gujarat, with Ottoman support, had an army of 10.000 soldiers vs the Portuguese 440 men, receiving reinforcements, near the end of the siege, of 3.000 soldiers including Indian (hindu) militias. As soon the fleet arrived they bombarded the enemy and they had to retreat.
      The Portuguese always had cities like Goa and Diu bcz those cities were basically islands extremely defensable by using cannons of the ships to disperse the enemy.

    The Battle of Diu of 1509 was by far more important that 1538 and changed the world. The vice-king Francisco de Almeida lost his son in a previous battle and went crazy. He grab all the boats and attacked the coalition of ottomans, egypcians and venetians. He was so crazy that he killed every single enemy he could catch as a cruel revenge. Afonso Alburquerque was even arrested before he could substitute Francisco de Almeida - because he wanted to led the attack. Francisco de Almeida was killed returning to Portugal in Mozambique.

Regarding to this clip, it was hard to manage these territories, Balkans, Anatolia against Safavid(Persian guys), Arabic peninsula against Memluks (another Turkish tribe), Aegean sea against for Europeans. It is an additional information, Turkish people are mixture of previous tribes, communities, cultures, entities that were Sumerians, Hitits, East Roman Empire, Turkish tribes from ASIA, a bit Persian, Arabs. For example, mother of the Sultan II. Mehmet who was the conquer of Constantinople ( city of Constantine) was Christian, and keeper was Serbian. Ottoman empires adopted to being successor of Eastern Roman Empire. Sultan II. Mehmet(conquer) was planning to capture Rome, Italy. lol. but he died when going to campaign.

    This is fascinating stuff. I've been to both Daman and Diu and had heard of the Portuguese battles with 'Muslim forces' but never realized they were talking about the Ottomans. I always thought they were referring to the Shah of Gujarat.
    Secondly, the similarity between this battle and the battle of Constantinople is astounding. The use of chains between islands, Ottoman Janniseries, Ottomans breaching the wall and almost on the verge of victory. The only difference between Constantinople and Diu was that in Constantinople, the relief from the papal states never came and Ottomans despite being on the last stretch were not pressed for time. Here they had a time crunch and they mistook a small fleet as a relief fleet and fled.

      @G博远 Actually Arariboia fought with the portuguese against the french. And for his assistance received the region of Niterói, and his descendants still exist today

    Just for the record, Portugal had in that time a 150 years advanced navy, ballistic and combat sea tactics for the all Europeans who thought are something in the world, infortunaly we had a mad Habsburg king that lost a ridiculous battle in North Africa, a king loser as his germanic blood of losers in great decisive battles, so the problem of Portugal was to let that German real house toke of over of the Portuguese royal house, when we came again to the game after more then 60 years after kick the Habsburgs asses, the British and the Dutch already toke advantage in India, Japan and China, but we still were the longest empire when Macau returned to China in 1999, I'm sure the Americans can't beat this record, or other empire that came, unless the Portuguese bild another empire to break their own record. :)

      Battle Alqacer Qibir 1578 was a Turkish Portuguese Rivality too.
      These time in North Africa
      The Ottomans was there with Yanissaries and Cannons.
      The Ottomans supported a Side
      And Portugues supported a Side
      Portugal lost not only Influence in Morocco, they lost their King and their Independence to Spain for 60 years.
      Ottomans where the Superior Continental Power and Portugal Maritime Power at these Time.
      Alfonso de Albuqerque's main goal was to reach Mecca through the Red Sea and exchange the Corpses of the Prophet Mohammed and Mecca for Jerusalem. In Terms of Trade, too, he had aims to bring the spice trade to Portugal via the Mediterranean Sea and North Africa. These goals could no longer be achieved after the emergence of the Ottomans as the successor to the Mameluks. The Priority of the Turks was the Land and the Security of the Red Sea & Aden. The Portuguese put their Priority on the Trading Posts and Fortresses on the High Sea.

    As a Gujarati thank you for not using anglicised 'Cambay'. The correct name is Khambhat.

    • Vantablanc
      Vantablanc 2 years ago +3

      Does anyone actually even say Cambay anymore? I've only ever heard it as Khambhat. But it feels bad when people say "Broach" instead of "Bhrigukachchha" or "Seringapatam"instead of "Srirangapatnam"

    • 18Lama

      @Vantablanc They do. People who are not as well informed about the vernacular or indigenous names use anglicised names. Like the Ganges instead of Ganga, etc.

    It's truly amazing to see the scale and scope on which the Portuguese and ottomans were conducting this protracted conflict. You would think it counts as the "first" truly "global war"... (Of course, though, this is not the first conflict inwhich major powers fought using far away proxies).

    • graciano neves
      graciano neves 2 years ago

      Correct, some historians call the portuguese - otoman wars the truly first global war. The otomans had with the French an alliance, read French war in Brazil about the same time. So basically battles occur between the portuguese and the Turks in Europe, Africa, Brazil and all over Asia. Some historians consider the Dutch - portuguese war as the truly first global war in the world.
