In the middle of the 16th century, the empire of Suleiman the Magnificent was immense. His army iwas feared throughout Europe and Constantinople fascinated the Western world.
In his palace, Suleiman fell madly in love for a Slavic slave, Roxelane, who eliminated all her rivals to become his wife. She managed to transform the master of a 300 women harem into a monogamous sultan.
Later, Suleiman, fearing that he could be overthrown, had his closest friend and part of his family executed. His own death is worthy of the greatest novels.
