Karesi principles' tombs in Bal─▒kesir

The Anatolian Turkish Beylik of Karesi, with its capital in Bal─▒kesir, was one of the frontier principalities established by Oghuz Turkish clans after the decline of the Seljuk Sultanate of R├╗m.

They were the first beylik to be taken over by the neighboring Osmanoglu dynasty, who were later to found the Ottoman Empire. The acquisition of Karesi allowed the Ottomans to begin the conquest of European lands in Rumelia across the Dardanellesmarker.

The Turkish province (sanjak, later vilayet) of Bal─▒kesir was called the sub-province (sanjak, later vilayet) of Karesi until the early years of the Republic of Turkeymarker, after which it was re-named after its central town Bal─▒kesir.
