Another stage in the museum‘s new presentation! A redesigned room in the Army Museum allows the tent of the Grand Vizier Sarı Süleyman Paşa to be admired again.
The item is testimony to the superior craftsmanship of Istanbul‘s tent makers and to the long and recurring wars with the Ottoman Empire. The room chronicles the history of the tent from its conquest in 1687 to the present day. On 12 August 1687, a major pitched battle took place west of the town of Mohács, in the south of present-day Hungary. The Ottoman army was led by the Grand Vizier, while Charles of Lorraine was supreme commander of the Imperial troops. The Ottomans were defeated. Maximilian Emanuel gained the war chests and the Grand Vizier‘s splendid tents.
What the exhibition does show is how the tent was repeatedly put to new uses in Bavaria. For instance, in September 1838, it was erected on the plain west of Augsburg for a Bavarian military encampment. Since 1881, the tent has been the largest showpiece of the Bavarian Army Museum.
