The Ottomans launched a siege of Eger (Turkish: Eğri), that lasted from September 20 to October 12, as part of the Long War, successfully conquering it after the 7,000 defenders of the fortress, mostly foreign mercenaries, capitulated to the Ottoman forces commanded by the Sultan Mehmed III himself.
