The Recapture of Buda Castle in 1686
Gyula Benczúr, 1896
Despite Grand Vizier Suleyman Pasha’s effort to send reinforcement, the besieged Ottoman army commander, Abdurrahman Abdi Arnavut Pasha was unable to mount a counter-attack and later killed in battle. The victorious armies of Holy Roman Empire and Kingdom of Hungary took their fury to the people, killing more than 3000 Turks, slaying muslims, raping women, burning mosques and synagogues. Jews weren’t spared either.
Tony Jacques in Dictionary of Battles and Sieges named Abdi Pasha’s defensive effort under the siege heroic.
