    Very interesting. Did both empires comprise the same territory?

      no. the Persian empire included some parts which some centuries later became part of the Ottoman empire BUT the Ottoman empire did not inclde all the land previously ruled by the Persian empire. in simple words, these two empires did not fully overlap geographically.

    Difference Between The Ottoman Empire And The Persian Empire or Achaemenid which is the first Persian empire!

    Achaemenid Empire (550–330 BC)
    Sasanian Empire (224–651)
    Samanid Empire ( 891-999)

    “In fact, they allowed Jews and Christians to worship and practice their traditions without persecution”

    What a load of nonsense, no one taught you about the religious tax, the blood tax etc?

      The religious tax was quite low, and mainly used to fund the religious institutions. As for the “blood tax” it ended being practiced in the 1640s.

      The complete abolition of the Janissaries and of the Devshirme took place in 1826.

      It was called Vaka-i Hayriye in Ottoman (Auspicious Iccident) yet Vaka-i Şerriyye (Sad/Unfortunate Incident) by the Balkans’ populations.
