I directly got those screenshots from another forum I didn't take them myself. But I suppose that must be it.

Byzantine records note that Slav numbers were so great, that grass would not regrow where the Slavs had marched through.

After conquering Constantinople, when Mehmed II finally entered the city through what is now known as the Topkapi Gate, he immediately rode his horse to the Hagia Sophia.

Mehmed's main concern with Constantinople was with rebuilding the city's defenses and repopulation. Building projects were commenced immediately after the conquest, which included the repair of the walls, construction of the citadel, and building a new palace.

Mehmed issued orders across his empire that Muslims, Christians, and Jews should resettle in the City demanding that five thousand households needed to be transferred to Constantinople by September. From all over the Islamic empire, prisoners of war and deported people were sent to the city; these people were called "Sürgün" in Turkish.

According to a survey carried out in 1478, there were then in Constantinople and neighboring Galata 16,324 households, 3,927 shops, and an estimated population of 80,000. The population was about 60% Muslim, 20% Christian, and 10% Jewish.

Images from the series Rise of Empires: Ottoman:

"Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II wages an epic campaign to take the capital of Constantinople and shapes the course of history for centuries."

For the most part the series is true to history and portrays those fighting the Ottomans as Romans.

1) Case Sotiris Bletsas for Minority Languages - Video:

The case of Sotiris Bletsas that has been chased by the Greek Law for declaring that his mother language and his origin was Vlach

In 1995, at an Aromanian festival in Greece, he distributed some EBLUL material about minority languages in Greece. In 2001, on an initiative of the MP for Edessa Evgenios Haïtidis, he was charged with "dissemination of false information" (contrary to article 191 of the Greek Penal Code) who reportedly was supported by the leadership of the Panhellenic Federation of Cultural Associations of Vlachs. The case drew protest from the Greek Helsinki Monitor and from abroad. He was first found guilty and sentenced to fifteen months in jail, suspended for three years, and fined 500,000 drachmas, however, he successfully appealed the decision and was subsequently found not guilty on 18 October 2001.

2) Emperor Nicephorus (802-811) settled colonists from various parts of the empire - "Kapheroi, Thrakesians, Armenians, and others from different places and cities" - in the Peloponnese.

Possibly these "Kapheroi" may have been Syrian Christian ex-subjects of the Caliphate who had become refugees or evacuees.

3) The Venetian Senate authorized the chatelain of Methoni to hire 300 mercenaries. Methoni is an interesting example of how Venetian colonists were settled, and their subsequent way of life. In 1293 the Senate ordered the walls of Methoni and Korone to be rebuilt and the towns populated by 24 families sent from Venice. Inside the burgus, or fortified town, of Methoni were commercial warehouses.
