Catalogue Note

The siege of Vienna by the army of the Ottoman Empire began in July 1683 and culminated in the Battle of Vienna which took place on 11 and 12 September of that year.  The battle was won by the combined forces of the Holy Roman Empire and the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, under the command of Jan III Sobieski, King of Poland, and marked the turning point in the 300 year struggle between the Holy Roman Empire and the Ottoman Empire.  Though the Ottomans fought on for another sixteen years, they eventually lost control of Hungary and Transylvania and the conflict was finalized in 1699 by the Treaty of Karlowitz.
