Devlet-i Aliye-i Osmaniye (Ottoman)

Devlet-i Aliye-i Osmaniye (Ottoman Turkish: دولت عليه عثمانيه‎ Devlet-i ʿAlīye-i ʿOsmānīye; Turkish: Osmanlı Devleti; English: Ottoman Empire) was an Anatolian based Oğuz Türkmän empire with Central Asian origins. Its founder and namesake, Ataman (Osman), was a member of the Qayı tribe of the Oğuz Türkmän, who had migrated from the East. Ruling from 1299 C.E. to 1922 C.E., their lasting influence on the Anatolian landscape, in the Middle East, in Europe, and even in Central Asia could not be overstated. They would be succeeded in the region by Türkiye (Republic of Turkey).
