  • The Fall of Gallipoli was the siege and capture of the Gallipoli peninsula, formerly under Byzantine occupation, by the Ottoman Turks in March 1354. After suffering a half-century of a string of defeats at the hands of the Ottomans, the Byzantine Empire had lost nearly all of their possessions in Anatolia. Access to the Aegean and Marmara meant that the Ottomans could now implement the conquest of the Peloponnese and Greece, and could advance further north into Serbia and Hungary. Wikipedia
