In the 16th century, an Ottoman sultan known as the second Solomon ruled half the civilized world. The Turks called him “Kanuni,” (the Lawgiver). To the Europeans, he was known as Süleyman the Magnificent. During his forty-six-year reign, the Ottoman Empire flourished and witnessed a golden age. Süleyman was an audacious military leader, celebrated poet, and enthusiastic patron of art and architecture. This film explores the breathtaking palaces and mosques of the Ottoman Empire and focuses on the dramatic life and personality of Sultan Süleyman.
