Siege of Antalya

Antalya, Turkey

Sultan Kaykhusraw took Antalya by storm in 1207 from its Niceaen garrison which furnished the Seljuq sultanate with a port on the Mediterranean. The capture of port gave the Turks another path into the Mediterranean although it would be another 100 years before the Turks made any serious attempts into the sea.
