Decline of the Ottoman Empire

Around the early 1800s, the Ottoman Empire began to collapse, losing territories, wealth, and power (see Map 10). Fleeing invasions from the west and in the east, Muslim subjects from the outer territories migrated to Istanbul and the Ottoman heartland, the Anatolian Peninsula.

Concurrently throughout the European empires, a sense of nationalism was emerging. Multi-ethnic subjects agitated to be organized according to their own cultures, identities, affinities, and religions. This growing unrest accelerated tensions and violence between ethnic groups and between ethnic groups and their rulers.
