the peace treaty of Karlóca

Memorial coin for the battle of Zenta
Temesvár 2
The treaty for 25 years signed on 26 January, 1699 in Karlóca (in county Szerém, today it is Karlovac in Serbia) by the Holy League and Mustapha II with English and Dutch mediation. It brought to an end the anti-Turkish war of the Holy League and stabilised the contemporaneous military situation. According to this, Hungary (with the exception of the Temesköz) was liberated from Turkish rule after 150 years. Transylvanian fell under the authority of Emperor Leopold I. Venice gained territories in the Peloponese peninsula and in the Aegean Sea, while Poland got Podolia with the castle of Kamanyec, which they had lost in the 1670s. Russia received Azov on the shores of the Black Sea. The Sultan promised to introduce free trade and not to support the rebels against the Habsburgs in Hungary and to settle Imre Thököly in the centre of his empire. The peace treaty diplomatically stabilised the situation of the Osman Empire (which suffered significant losses) in Europe.
