The Battle of Chaldiran (also Chaldoran or Cald?ran) occurred on 23 August 1514 and ended with a victory for the Ottoman Empire over the Safavid Empire of Persia. As a result the Ottomans gained immediate control over eastern Anatolia and northern Iraq. The battle, however was just the beginning of the 124 years of destructive war between the two Islamic empires that only ended in 1638 and the Treaty of Zohab. While the Ottomans often had the upper hands, the Persian held their own ground.
