Comments The Anatolian Turkish Beylik of Aydinoglu in what is now eastern Turkey was one of the frontier principalities established in the 14th century by Oghuz Turks after the decline of the Sultanate of Rum. The Aydin Beylik was a significant naval power and at times controlled the port city of Izmir on the Aegean Sea. The Beylik came under the control of Tamerlane in 1402 and eventually became part of the Ottoman Empire. Little is known of Mehmed II apart from his name on a handful of coins.
