The BATTLE of LEPANTO
by Dr. Peter Hammond
The Turkish Threat
The Battle of Lepanto on 7 October 1571 was one of the most
critical naval battles in history.
The Christian League forces were led by John of Austria, half brother of
King Philip II. The island of Cyprus had fallen to Turkish invasion.
The Turks had treacherously violated their agreement with the Greek
and Italian defenders. After all supplies were exhausted and guarantees
of safe conduct were offered, the Venetian garrison of Famagusta
surrendered.

  • 3. The BATTLE of LEPANTO by Dr. Peter Hammond
  • 4. The Turkish Threat The Battle of Lepanto on 7 October 1571 was one of the most critical naval battles in history.

  • 6. The Turks had treacherously violated their agreement with the Greek and Italian defenders. After all supplies were exhausted and guarantees of safe conduct were offered, the Venetian garrison of Famagusta surrendered. Turkish Treachery
  • 7. The Turks then treacherously had all Venetian prisoners executed, the rest enslaved and the courageous Christian General Marco Antonio Bragadino, had his nose and ears cut off, his teeth broken and was flayed with whips until dead.
  • 8. As the Turks were planning further invasion of Europe, a coalition of Christian forces under John of Austria included 206 galleys and 6 galleasses. The Christian Coalition

  • 10. The fleet was manned by almost 13,000 sailors, 43,000 rowers and 28,000 soldiers, including 10,000 Spanish, 7,000 German, 6,000 Italian and 5,000 Venetian soldiers. Most of the 43,000 rowers were free oarsmen.

  • 12. Under the command of Ali Pasha, the 13,000 experienced sailors were drawn from all the maritime nations of the Ottoman Empire: Egyptians, Syrians, Greeks and Berbers. The Turkish fleet included 34,000 soldiers.
  • 13. Comparing the Opposing Forces While the Christians were outnumbered in every other way, the Christian League had two significant advantages.
  • 14. Their infantry were definitely superior, and the Christians had 1,815 cannons, compared to 750 among the Turkish vessels.
  • 15. The Christians also had more advanced muskets, while the Ottomans trusted in their greatly feared composite bowmen.
  • 16. Unlike the Christian fleet, the Turkish fleet was powered entirely by Christian slaves and prisoners of war forced to row in chains.
  • 17. Confrontation The five hour battle was fought at the edge of the Gulf of Patras, off Western Greece, near Corinth.
  • 18. The Ottoman forces were sailing westwards from their naval base in Lepanto, when they were confronted by the Christian League fleet which had sailed from Messina.
  • 19. The battle started when the Turks mistook the large galleasses to be merchant supply vessels and set out to pirate them.
  • 20. This proved to be disastrous because the galleasses were a new Venetian innovation, carrying a tremendous battery of artillery.
  • 21. Devastating The 6 Venetian galleasses sank up to 70 Turkish galleys before the rest of the fleet could engage. The galleasses succeeded in breaking up the Ottoman formations.
  • 22. Commander Barbarigo who led the left division, of mainly Venetian galleys, was killed by a Turkish arrow, but the Venetians turned to face the threat and held the line. Commander Pietro Giustiniani, of the Knights of St. John was severely wounded by five arrows.

  • 31. The Battle of Lepanto, following the Turkish defeat at the Great Siege of Malta in 1565, restricted Ottoman expansionism in the Mediterranean. It broke the threat of Muslim dominance at sea.
  • 32. A Turning Point Lepanto was one of the great turning points in history. It ended the fear of the Turks that had threatened to overwhelm all of Europe. It stopped the Turkish advance.
  • 33. Lepanto was the last major naval battle between rowing vessels. Some Western historians have held Lepanto to be the most decisive naval battle anywhere on the globe since the Battle of Actium of 31BC. It certainly was a turning point in history.
  • 34. The Turkish Empire had lost so many experienced sailors, oarsmen, and soldiers that the fighting effectiveness of the Ottoman Empire was never able to recover.

Confidence grew in the West that the Turks, previously unstoppable, could be beaten.” Lepanto heralded the end of Turkish naval supremacy in the Mediterranean.
  • 37. The Intervention of God As historian Otto Scott observed: “Only God could have saved so divided a Europe against so determined and savage, rich and heavily armed a foe. After Lepanto the Turks remained a menace, but not an unconquerable one.”
