Murad II was the sultan of the Ottoman Empire from 1421 to 1451 (except a period in 1444 to 1446). He took back the territories in Anatolia that were lost to Timur Lenk in the Battle of Ankara in 1402, and the territories in Europe that were lost to Serbs and Hungarians during the Ottoman Triumvirate.

- A Turk can say these without "plagiarizing" at any time you want. We learn these at primary school. With respect, Deliogul 17:58, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
I had to chuckle at the " Mustafa ... then turned his arms against the Greek emperor and declared his resolution to punish the Palaiologos for their unprovoked enmity by the capture of Constantinople." The poor innocent wee lad - this comment does seem a bit off kilter in respect of the long wars between the Byzantines and Turks. Who started it? Hmm ...

The name given as Arabic in the first paragraph is obviously in Arabic script. But is it in Arabic? Turkish was written in Arabic script until the 20th century. My guess is this is simply his Turkish name written in a different alphabet. Rbraunwa 19:05, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
- I think its the same, it means murad the second in arabic if the شـ written in شاني was a ثـ and the word would be ثاني, ie, the second, at least in arabic, could someone please make sure if شاني (SHani) means anything in turkish (second maybe ??), if not, its probably a typo.--18.104.22.168 22:37, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
Age at beginning of rule
It says in the first paragraph of the Biography section that he began his rule at the age of 18. if he was born in 1404, there is no way he was 18 in 1421. Is one of the dates incorrect, or is the the age wrong? Lord GaleVII (talk) 16:20, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
In Hungarian History, Battle Jalowaz is considered as a major Hungarian victory against Turks. (It was in three months before the battle of Varna) But this battle as well as previous battles in 1443 are not mentioned in the article. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 16:24, 10 December 2009 (UTC)
A list of Murat's wifes has been presented. I want to comment on the following:
- Both Tacinüssa and Halime were his wifes and both from Candaroğlu house. Had Murat married to two sisters ? I don't think it was possible. Probably the both names belong to same person.
- According to Prof Yaşar Yücel and Ali Sevim, Murat had married to Melek hatun from Karamanoğlu house. But this name is missing in the list. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 10:59, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
