Suleiman’s Tomb Found In Hungary?

The remains of the tomb of Suleiman the Magnificent, the sultan who died in 1566 while his troops were besieging the fortress of Szigetvar in southern Hungary, have “in all likelihood” been found, a Hungarian historian said Wednesday. Norbert Pap said the tomb is believed to have been built over the spot where Suleiman’s tent stood and where he died. Pap said objects suggesting it was Suleiman’s tomb were found during the dig, as well as other historical evidence, although more excavations are needed to confirm the find. Pictured is a 1530 portrait of Suleiman attributed to Titian.
