The Sultan's Admiral: Barbarossa: Pirate and Empire Builder (Tauris Parke Paperbacks)

The Sultan's Admiral: Barbarossa: Pirate and Empire Builder

In this definitive biography, Ernle Bradford has brilliantly recreated Barbarossa’s remarkable life alongside a vivid portrayal of the Ottoman and Mediterranean worlds at this thrilling moment in history. Admiral, naval hero, pirate, warrior and empire-builder, Kheir ed-Din or Barbarossa, as he was known in the West, was a legendary figure. Born on Lesbos in Greece he rose to become High Admiral of the Ottoman Navy, Sultan of Algiers and friend and advisor to Suleiman the Magnificent. His life dominated the history of the Mediterranean in the 16th century. From the moment that he and his brother, Aruj, established themselves on the North African coast, the pattern of life and trade in the Mediterranean changed forever and for nearly 300 years after it was affected by the activities of raiders from what came to be called the Barbary Coast. His achievements in reorganizing the Ottoman Navy and his command of it helped the expansion of the Turkish Empire that threatened all of Europe.

Il Pirata Barbarossa (Edizione Italiana) (Italian Edition)

Il Pirata Barbarossa (Edizione Italiana) (Italian

In un antico manoscritto, ritrovato dopo secoli di oblio nella cripta di un monastero di Citera, è narrata la storia dei due fratelli Barbarossa, i piú temuti corsari del sedicesimo secolo. Istigati al crimine dalla distruzione del loro villaggio di pescatori a Mitilene, i fratelli Aruj e Khair ad-Din seminarono il terrore in tutto il Mediterraneo, tenendo in scacco le flotte dei potenti d'Europa. Carlo V di Spagna come Francesco I di Francia, gli oligarchi di Genova e della Serenissima, despoti e sultani come celebrati ammiragli, le galere corsare nemiche come quelle papali: nessuno si sottrasse ai loro assalti e razzie, ai baratti di passeggeri facoltosi con lauti riscatti. Avventurieri spietati ma leali, non erano peggiori dei loro avversari, governanti corrotti e malvagi. Greci e turchi, cristiani e musulmani, spagnoli e francesi, veneti e genovesi, tutti indistintamente praticarono come i Barbarossa l'orgia sfrenata del saccheggio, del contrabbando e della violenza. Intrecciando la realtà storica con la leggenda, Ghiorgos Leonardos dipinge un quadro avvincente sulla sete di avventura e di gloria dei Barbarossa. Un affresco che ha i colori tenebrosi del delitto e della ferocia, ma soprattutto quelli abbaglianti della passione, del coraggio e dell'intelligenza.
