Interesting Info:
The Ottoman Empire was founded by Turkish tribes in Anatolia in the late 13th century. The empire was ruled by the descendants of Osman I until 1918 - the end of World War I, when the empire was dissolved. Modern Turkey forms only a part of the empire, but the terms "Turkey" and "Ottoman Empire" are often used interchangeably
