Suleiman, influenced by his passion for Alexander the Great, personally led Ottoman armies in conquering the Christian strongholds of Belgrade and Rhodes as well as most of Hungary before his conquests were checked at the Siege of Vienna in 1529.

The fall of Christendom's major strongholds spread fear across Europe. It is said that the capture of Belgrade was the catalyst for the dramatic events which engulfed Hungary.
