The Fall of Constantinople, also known as the Conquest of Istanbul, was the capture of Constantinople, the capital of the Byzantine Empire, by the Ottoman Empire under the command of the 21-year old Sultan Mehmet II, against the Byzantine army led by Emperor Constantine XI Palaiologos. Using the power of an Apple of Eden, Mehmet was able to emerge victorious against the Byzantine forces. This event marked the end of the Byzantine Empire.
