Other Conquests of Tunis in '71, '69, '74 and '34[edit]

This article should be split into at least Conquest of Tunis (1534), Conquest of Tunis (1535), Conquest of Tunis (1569), Conquest of Tunis (1571) and Conquest of Tunis (1574).

For 1534:

"The Ottoman Empire took nominal control of the city in 1534 when Barbarossa Hayreddin captured it from the Hafsid Sultan, Mulai Hassan." -- Tunis

"The Ottoman troops, under the leadership of Hayreddin Barbarossa, appeared before the Bab El Jazira on 18 August 1534 pillaged the city." -- Tunis

For 1569:

"Confronting the difficulties previously encountered, the Ottoman Uluç Ali Reis, at the head of an army of janissaries and Kabyles retook Tunis in 1569." -- Tunis

For 1571:

"He accompanied Don John of Austria at the taking of Tunis in the following year [to the Battle of Lepanto]." -- Álvaro de Bazán

"However, following the Battle of Lepanto in 1571, the Spanish succeeded in retaking the city and re-establishing the Hafsid sovereign." -- Tunis

For 1574:

"The resulting protectorate lasted until the Ottomans retook Tunis in 1574." -- Tunis

"Following these conflicts, the city finally fell into Ottoman hands in August 1574." -- Tunis

"The Ottomans responded by recapturing the city in 1574." -- Conquest of Tunis (this comment is also inaccurate, as it ignores prior events)
