Actually, this is a map of the Balkans before Ottoman occupation;

This wasn't prior, but during the Ottoman occupation.

The map is dated 1377. I guess it's the beggining of the occupation, some 12 years before the Battle of Kosovo.

Some count it after the Kosovo battle some before, it varies. I personally take it with the loss in the battle of Maritsa.

– Where we lost, because we were drinking that night, nobody took Turks seriously. The Turks attacked us the same night in our sleep. Arrogance was our downfall.

Let's hope history doesn't repeat itself. The neo-Ottomans are quite aggressive at the moment. They have the Balkans firmly in their sights once again…
