Birth of Selim II, sultan of the Ottoman Empire and favorite son of his father, Suleiman I. Selim had little interest in warfare and would end up spending much of his time with his harem, leaving the management of the Ottoman Empire to his advisors.

Fortunately those advisors are generally competent, but the reign of Sultan Selim II is the beginning of a long period of decay for the Ottoman Empire.
