Austro-Turkish War of 171618
Found in: History of Turkey
The Treaty of Karlowitz (1699) was not an acceptable long-standing agreement for the Ottoman Empire. Twelve years after Karlowitz, the Turks began the long prospect of taking revenge for their defeat at the Battle of Vienna in 1683.
First, the Turkish Grand Vizier Baltaci Mehmet's army defeated Peter the Great's Russian Army. Thereafter, in the TurkishVenetian War (17141718), the new Grand Vizier Damat Ali re-conquered Morea from the Venetians in 1715.
In response to Austria, as the guarantor of the Treaty of Karlowitz, threatening the Ottoman Empire, the Ottoman Empire declared war against Austria. In 1716, Prince Eugene of Savoy defeated the Turks at Petrovaradin. The following year, after the Austrians captured Belgrade, the Turks wanted peace and in 1718 the Treaty of Passarowitz was signed. The Austrians maintained control over Belgrade and the Treaty of Passarowitz confirmed their gains in 1699, leaving the Turks with control over the south bank of the Danube River.
