Ottoman sultan Murad II dies and is succeeded by Mehmed II. In a little over two years Mehmed II will accomplish what other Muslim rulers had long sought without success: conquest of Constantinople. It only takes him a month to complete the task, though he uses as many as 200,000 men and over 300 warships to do it.
