Truce of Adrianople (1547)

Truce of Adrianople
1547
The 1547 Truce of Adrianople was made between the Holy Roman Empire and the Ottoman Empire.

The Truce of Adrianople in 1547, named after the Ottoman city of Adrianople (present-day Edirne), was signed between Charles V and Suleiman the Magnificent. Through this treaty, Ferdinand I of Austria and Charles V recognized total Ottoman control of Hungary,[1] and even agreed to pay to the Ottomans a yearly tribute of 30,000 gold florins for their Habsburg possessions in northern and western Hungary.[2][3] The Treaty followed important Ottoman victories in Hungary, such as the Siege of Esztergom (1543).
