Trivia Question: What ancient empire conquered the Byzantine Empire and absorbed its territories wholly?
Answer: The Ottoman Empire
The Ottoman Empire was born of the remnants of the Middle East’s caliphates. Centuries of decline weakened the Byzantine Empire to the point that the Ottomans were able to conquer it with relative ease. When the Ottoman Empire itself fell, it would become the modern nation of Turkey.
Founder of IHP, husband to a great wife (my best friend), and dad to 5 wonderful kids. Big fan of history, quizzes, and just about anything trivia related. I also enjoy reading biographies, non-fiction, and fiction (fantasy novels). My other hobby is board games and in my opinion there is nothing better than a family board game night!
